Question about 2004 Chevrolet Malibu
I just had to replace the ignition lock cylinder on my car which means I have a new car key (the old one doesn't work). The shop only gave me one car key though. How do I get a spare without having to drop $75 on a programmed key? Is there a way to reprogram a duplicate ($45) having only 1 original? I've read up on how to do it with 2 originals, but not one. Any suggestions???
The ignition keys are not coded. no "chip" in them you should be able to just have a spare key cut and it will work fine. These use an electronic device in key cylinder that senses the proper rotation of cylinder and tumblers. so if someone tries to pry on with a screwdriver it will disable starter. when this is replaced it has to be reprogrammed
