Tried buying a toggle switch from the starter relay to the battery the car cranked over start for second then shuts off. I also tried hot water in my fuel pump to stay on while I Tried this, does not work. Just experimenting… Is there any way possible I may be able to start my car and drive it?

Hello,

In order to start the car, you will have to reset the security system.

Try disconnecting the battery and wait for at least one minute then reconnect. This should reset the immobilizer system.

Here are some helpful information:

Keep in mind that some of these vehicles will require a scan tool to reset the security system.

Please let me know what you find.
Thank you.

The security system is there to prevent anyone from driving the car without the proper key or transponder. Try the reset of the system first, if the reset doesn't work then you will need to do more diagnostics to determine if it is a bad key or bad fob or a part of the vehicle is the reason. Do you have more than one key or fob for the car? Try all that you have. If you don't have a key for it then a mobile locksmith might be able to help, they will need proof of ownership and ID, then they can contact the factory to get the code to cut the key that fits, then they program the car to accept the key.
