They suggested I just buy a cheap blank one and have it cut and then take it to them for programming....Can anyone confirm that with just one key my mechanic could probably program the new key I order and have cut?
I have a 2008 but I think the concept is the same, yes the dealer can do it with one key because they have a programming tool to interface with the car. We can do it ourselves but you need two programmed keys to program a blank one. Some shops won't cut these keys, i thought especially on the pre-08 keys. I could be wrong though.
