I would agree that $175 for a key like the one that came with my car is too much. It is not one of those smart keys but the one with the built-in keyless remote. The dealer that I purchased the car from only had one key to the car. So I guess I will be going to eBay to order a replacement key and find a local locksmith.

Got my replacement key via eBay today for $30. Now it is time to find an auto locksmith in my area who can program and cut the key. Anyone know a good one in the Fremont, CA area?

I bought my car used. It only had one key with it and it was programmed as a "MyKey". I want to get another key from ebay but what do I need to do to make it an Admin Key and/or erase the "MyKey" on the other? Can anyone help?
