Can I just pick one up on eBay or somewhere and program it? Does the car already have all the required parts or do I have to look into an aftermarket security system?
I bought My S used, and it only came with one IKT (with unlock/lock panic and trunk buttons). It was the only key the car had, I don't know what happened to the other standard non fob key but it wasnt with the car when i bought it). Well since i tend to lose things, I just had the dealer order me a second IKT fob thingie and had them program it for me.. cost about 200 bucks to have it done and it took them a little over a week to get it.. They told me since its a laser cut key it comes precut (using VIN data) and they just clear both keys from the car and add two new (to the car) keys during the reprogramming process.. using the IDS system. They ordered it up, and called me when it came in, for me to bring the car to be programmed for it... took about 10 or 15 minutes tops once the key came in...
