No. There is a transmitter in the key that deactivates an immobilizer. One reason not to hide a spare key because it can deactivate the immobilizer.

Just about every modern vehicle has some sort of chip or transponder in the key.  On my pickup, a cheap $1 key from the hardware store will unlock my doors, unlock my tailgate, and turn in the ignition.  However, the car will not power up or start.  Makes it handy for me to start the car, lock it, then allow it to warm up while I have coffee.
