If you start a Dodge Neon three times with an unchipped key the car will lock down, you have to contact a Dodge dealer to have them "unlock" the car. I found this out when I first bought mine, luckily I didn't start it three times with the blank key so I couldn't tell you how much it will cost a dealer to repair the problem, as I am assuming they just reset the computer. Or you could attach a diagnostic computer to the car, it will usually allow you to reset any issues which may work as well.
