Being outsmarted by my car key

Hello fellow g6 owners. i own a 2006 g6 gtp. 3.9l. I recently broke the key off in the drivers side door. (not on purpose). it was my only key. I went to a dealer and bought a new key im not sure if it has a chip or not. anyway, i am trying to reprogram the key, i have tried the generic turn the key to on and wait 10 mins 3x or whatever. my security light does not turn off when i do this, and it blinks the entire time. not sure what i am doing wrong. the car will start for a second but turns right back off, now it will only click, i believe the battery is dead. i also reset the battery and retried the key but it still didnt work. i dont have the money right now to take it to the shop. anyone humor me with some help, that would be great. i got a date tomorrow and i wanna show her the beauty of the g6. thanks in advance!!!!

your replacement key has to have the chip or it wont start your car.

You can purchase an equivalent key with resistor on eBay then have a locksmith cut it for you to match what the dealer gave you (going to assume it's the correct key). Not sure why your key doesn't work if you got it from the dealer.

The transponder keys have a + stamped in them next to the back part of the key. If it does not have one it will not program.

Do you still have the back part of the original key that you broke? If so you should be able to hold it next to the new key and start the car. It only has to be close to the ignition cylinder to work. You would of course want to get your replacement key programmed eventually but this method should get you going.
