Will a car start without an OBD box?

Report as

A car cannot start without an OBD box, even when major modifications have been made. The OBD controls most of the engine's major components. It is also the system that provides early warning of malfunctions on the car.

Okay so the car won't start at all? I lost my keys and had a locksmith make me a new key and he told me my OBD box is gone so he couldn't program the key to the car. However, a dealship told me that the box may just be hidden because when i put the key in the ignition it will turn on but it won't completely start. So because it is turning on does that mean that the OBD box might be somewhere that is not being seen?

Every car has an OBD box unless it was actually removed. Sounds like he just didnt look hard enough.
