No, you need to (a) get PATS disabled in the tune, or (b) replace the damaged antenna--option (b) is probably the easiest of the two, any PATS "C" antenna from a junkyard will work. Plan (a) will require removing the PCM and sending it to someone that can disable the PATS, or find someone to come to your house and do the same.

Curious, how did it get "broke"?

Engineering is, at its base, making what you want from what you have.
At its extreme it is making what you want from what you can get.

Was trying to be a smart as* and wrap it around the key and use regular ones. So if I get the copper ring from the Junkyard any programming need to be done? Or just plug in and go?
