Well if you are lucky check the owners manual when the car is new if i remember right there should be a pice of paper or somthing with the codes on it if not try asking a lock smith some times they can work wonders. Why its so much is because the key has a chip in it that when put in the ignition sends signal to the pats system so you cant steel the car. good luck.

I've lost my keys to my 2004 Chrysler Sebring. Is there anyway to starty car without it?


No. The key has a chip in it and no other key will work. You have two choices, both are expensive.

First is have your Sebring towed to your dealer, they will look up you VIN and cut two new keys and then program them to your car.

The second (and this may be a little cheaper) is to find a local locksmith in your area, that can cut Chrysler keys, to come to your car, cut two new keys and then program them to your car.

Can't offer an accurate price but I would imaging the dealer cost will be in the $300 range (plus towing). Need to call around and get prices.

I lost remote to my 2007 corolla how do i get a new one if i am not the original buyer


go to any Toyota dealer. They will sell you a new key fob but they also charge extra for programming. Total cost for the key fob and programming will be around $100. any Toyota dealer can do it for you

How do I re-program my Remote Control with automatic starter on my 2009 Town and Country Van


My experience with frequently-used vehicle remotes (any make) is this:
1. When relatively new or in good condition, if remote stops working, the button battery inside is dead or too low.

2. If battery is new, & remote still doesn't work, a solder joint on the circuit board inside may have come loose or broken.(You can try re-soldering using a low-heat pencil iron & thin RESIN-core solder -- even if you're not great at it, what do you have to lose?)

3. It's rather unusual for even an older, well-used remote to simply lose its programming.If this is the problem, it may be cheaper to buy a new after-market remote (or pair of remotes) that you can program yourself (only works with some brands & years of vehicles, so READ THE INSTRUCTIONS ON THEIR WEBSITE BEFORE BUYING AN AFTER-MARKET REMOTE), instead of going to the dealer for a normally HIGH-priced programming job.

4. Used OEM remotes that match yours exactly (check the part # of your remote & the used one you're considering) can often be purchased from a local auto wrecker (now called "auto recycler") for cheap ($5 to $10 is common), but will need programming.I always go thru the many they have, looking for one that appears new or like-new.

5. IF YOU MUST GET PROGRAMMING FROM A DEALER, usually it's the SAME PRICE whether you have 1 remote or several remotes/keys programmed at the same time.Since dealer programming is pricey, I always have 3-4 remotes and/or chip-keys programmed at the same time.(My dear wife loses chip-keys & remotes from time-to-time, so I keep a few spares on-hand.I've found inexpensive after-market chip-key blanks at some key cutters and/or auto parts stores, altho they still require programming after the copy is cut from yours.)

CAUTION
:Some OEM anti-theft systems require that ALL remotes & chip-keys be programmed/re-programmed at the same time, whether they're original, used or new.Determine this IN ADVANCE, so you know what you're faced with.The good news is that for those vehicle manufacturers, dealers normally don't charge more to program/re-program multiple remotes and/or chip-keys, if all are being done AT THE SAME TIME.

6. If all else fails & you MUST buy a new OEM remote (which will require programming), try 2 things -- First, see if the dealer will make you a package deal on buying the remote (or 2 remotes, or a remote & a chip-key) AND doing the programming for a lower combined price.Second, it may be cheaper to buy a new OEM remote from a dealer who's had one in stock for a long time & wants to blow it out (or buy from online OEM seller) & then pay the normal programming price.See the CAUTION above.

There are lots of options here, so hopefully something is useful to you.

Key fob reprogram


Some locksmiths have the machinery to do this but you will have to shop around for them. The problem is that the new key has to be programmed to the immobiliser in the car so the dealer wants the car and the new key to complete the job.. When you consider that to have the job done on a lot of cars the job costs $25.00 for the key .$25.00 to have the key cut and $450 + to have it programmed I consider $200.00 to be reasonable

I lost my keyless entry XC70 key and my dealer is quoting me $400 for a replacement...any suggestions for a cheaper alternative?


The car keys need to be programmed using VADIS/VIDA. Buy the key fob on ebay and have the dealer cut and program the key.

Lost my key to my jaguar 2003 x-type, where can i get a new one


the only place that will have the sort of equipment to cut you a new key (the key has to be cut according to the vin number of the car), is going to be the dealership. also the computer equipment needed to program the new key is most likely only avaliable at the dealer.
