i'll try that

Thanks for this information. I wouldn't likely have thought of it and this is very useful. I'm going to set mine up this way.

Programming the key is easy and instructions are included in the packet. They also have the keys with the built in remote. Any locksmith can cut the key for you once you get the blank. $17.95 for since I have my own key machine, but figure on a couple of bucks more to have the key cut at a locksmith.

apo8307 I just found a lock smith that says he can do it for $55.00 and that includes programing it. going fri. to get it done

jk'n My dealer wanted $260.00 me thinks. Been so long now, the shock has warn off and the recollection of their quote has gotten foggy. It was $160.00 for the key blank and additional funds to cut the key and program it into the anti theft system.

JIMBOX There ain't no more free lunch's--it's a dealer provision !!

You can always have a key made at a key shop, but

It will only onlock your door--nothng else !!

OSUJEEPER If you no longer have one, I think you have to go through the dealer because they have to use the VIN to order you a new one. I'm not 110% on that.
