    Re: Replacing car keys

    I believe if you go to the dealership with the VIN #, her ID, and maybe the registration they should be able to make you a new set of keys.

    Does ******* mean "Smelly pirate hooker?" If so, then you already posted my suggestion.

    Re: Replacing car keys

    Take your credit card to the dealership also. You will need it with the price of the keys today.

    I have two words too. But they aren't bus pass, and they'd probably get my post deleted.​

    Re: Replacing car keys

    It'll still probably be $150.

    My fiance lost the key to her 2001 Old's Alero a few years back and it cost her $20 to get a new one from Bob Brown's. As long as there is not a computer chip in the key, it will be cheap.

    I spent $200 on one for a '99 a few years back. The damn computer chip rapes ya.

    I also just had a locksmith do it. He just came out to me & made a key on the spot ( didn't ask for ID, registration, or anything).

    That was the last time I took my keys tubing down the Skunk! ( dumb in the first place, I know)

    Re: Replacing car keys

    I'd call a locksmith first to see if they can reproduce a key for you before going to the dealership. Especially since now that she's hopefully learned her lesson, she'll get two keys made.
