Hello, thanks for your answer! Are you sure? This is an european car (Portugal).

in other group a user told if the key had a black square on top it would have a chip, saw mine and it has! Other users wiith 96 cars also referred having a chip/transponder


this is my key and on top i can see this black square

The transponder in the key is for the Immobilser.

US cars do not have the immobiliser system. European cars DO have the immobiliser system.

So short answer for you is that your key must have a transponder.
