Default KEYS ARE GONE...need assistance

Well I only have one set of keys for my 2002 Bonnevile SE. They fell down sewer and are long gone by now. I was lucky enough to jimmy the lock and can get into the car however.

I need to be at my brothers wedding on friday (leave late thursday night) and have no other car. So I would really appreciate step by step instructions on how to hotwire my car. I have been on the web for awhile searching for hotwiring steps, but the Bonneville has a different set-up than what is described for a "typical hotwire"

Any help would be greatly greatly appreciated.

The dealer can cut replacement keys based on your car'* serial number. I highly doubt anyone on this site will provide instructions on how to hot wire a car.

the 2000+ bonnevilles cannot be hot wired sorry to tell ya i had asked that question to GM myself to ease my worries about being stolen given the area i was in there is no bypass for it that i am aware of. and no offense but i really do not think it would be a good idea for the information if any to be available to the general public given no one wants their car stolen. the only way i know of to steal a 2000+ is get a tow truck but good luck starting it

Tow it to the dealer or give them your VIN number and have a key made. That'* the best we can offer here.

there could be a possibility of hotwiring but it would take tons of knowledge and way longer than a potential theif would spend on it

what you will need upon asking the dealer for a new key is:
proof of ownership of the car with VIN# (I.E. registration)
Valid state or government issue ID with picture
