just went thru this price-gouging myself,,,I got 2 key blanks thru e-bay (less than $20- don't remember exactly). called a local dealer, yes, $100 PER KEY to cut and program!! continued calling dealers and found one that would cut and program ALL MY KEYS for $50 !! this is good because now ALL MY KEYS have their OWN IDENTITY in the computer, brain, module, whatever it is called. no CLONES. SOME dealers WILL NOT program a third-party key, you HAVE to buy theirs. call around, you may get lucky,,,NOW IF I COULD JUST GET THESE KEY FOBS PROGRAMMED TO THE CAR-i will be happy !! (for now)
the car enters program mode, but that is all it does. i was under the impression that if you have auto door locks, you are set up for the keyless entry fobs. can ANYONE confirm this ?? this is THE BEST auto forum i have ever found!! GO FF!!
