Wal-Mart Troubles

Do not know if this has been posted before, but wal-mart refuses to cut any transponder key, even if you inform them you just want it to unlock the car, they will not budge and will refuse your key. I had to drive to several stores around here until i found out Menards in town had the ability to cut them. but i do not know if it is Wal-mart company policy or not, but just be aware of that.

Weird... Walmart sucks I used to shop there a lot because its only 2 miles from me but if you ever need to ask a question its like asking the sales associate for a thousand bucks.

I think that Wal-Mart might have a company wide policy to not cut transponder keys due to what's been happening with the Honda guys getting their car's VIN# copied and their cars gone.

if anyone is in the IL, WI, or IA area, farm and fleet should cut them for you but theyll give you the warning that if you try to turn on the car with them youre SOL when it comes to getting anywhere quick, that its strictly a door only key.
