That would be aftermarket they used to be called pro locks yrs ago. If the key looks like that then the socket it goes in is burned up also. Unfornately I can't give out info on how to remove any anti theft devices on cars. Its this sites policy to not do that. The info could fall into the wrong hands like people wanting to steal cars. So I suggest having the car towed to a shop for repair.
