The problem isn't finding the key. You can get the key on ebay and online just about anywhere. The problem is you have to take it to a dealership or someone that can program the key for you. It takes a special piece of equipment to program the key.

Edited your title to "transponder key" to match the usual description.

Many sources, can't say what's "best" for you offhand.

Try searching in General Tech Chat for the directions (can't remember if it's in the How To listing). There are even YouTube videos on it, but I don't have anything bookmarked for reference to offer.

Important part you covered, having the two keys programmed into the system on hand.

If you only had ONE you couldn't do it yourself.

IIRC to program a new key with 2 current keys you insert the first key and turn to the on position for at least 5 seconds but no longer than 10, repeat with second key right after, then the same with the new key. And it should work, this is from memory so might be not 100% accurate but I'm fairly certain thats how its done!
