So what would they take to the locksmith now that they
have NO keys for the car?
think u can only program a key in the car if u have 2 others, for a total of 3.
if you have less than that you need a dealer to do it
This is true, unless you know someone near you that has a StarScan.
You need to have two working transponder keys in order to program
a third one on your own.
You can NOT program a new key with just ONE old key. You need
to have two working keys in your posession in order to do it yourself.
Even if you had just one, and you took it to a locksmith to make you
a new one, you will still have to either go to the dealer, or a person
with a StarScan to program it for you.
If you don't know anyone with the StarScan, then you WILL be
paying a dealer alot of money to program it for you.
