If you don't have a copy to go off of, you have to go through the dealer. You'll have to give them your VIN and proof that you won the car and then they will order another one for the price of an arm and half your leg. If you have a copy to go off of, it's much easier because a good locksmith can copy it for you.

I could not find a locksmith that made our keys and I called a shit load of them in Chicago. The dealer can order it for you for $80 and your vin number.

Really? Did you have a copy to go off of? I can't imagine that they wouldn't do it for you. There are a couple here that'll do it. They even have valet style templates on hand if you want to use one of those.

Now if they don't have one to make a copy from, it won't work and you'd have to go to the dealer.

I had a key to make a copy from. I just couldn't find a locksmith that had the eqiupment to duplicate the key. I ended up getting a couple of blanks and the dealer offered to copy them for free.[:D]

Wow, that's great if the dealer would do that for you then, that's better than a locksmith if they did it for free!
