Lost ignition key to 1989 gmc truck

If all you did was lose the key, copy down your vehicle identification number (VIN) which is on the dash, and take it and your registration and personal identification to the dealer to prove you are the owner. They can look up what you need and make you a key. :)

Lost car key no spare

A Hyundai dealer may be able to make you a new key from the VIN number on the dashboard. However, you will need to prove you own the car, as they get requests regularly for a new key with a stolen VIN number.
Be blessed.

Hi, I have lost my only key to my '99 Odyssey. There is no dealer in my town so how do I go about getting a replacement? I live in Ft McMurray AB.

Most dealers have a cross reverence for vehicle replacement key's.You have to bring the vin number which can be found on the lower outside bottom of the drivers side windshield and they should be able to cross reference to your dealer for to press you out another key against the vin #............Hope this helps you out..............Magiaver Bonnyville Alberta.

I lost my keys to my 1990 Mazda Miata. Can you tell me how to replace them?

The first thing to try is to go to your local Mazda dealer service department, and usually they can make a key for you off of your VIN number. Call to see what they need from you to do that, such as registration or other paperwork.
My wife locked her purse in our car with the engine running, when we were out of town, and the local dealer helped us out in about an hour!

If they can't help you, then you are at the mercy of a locksmith.

Lost keys need to make a new key

Hi my name is Allen!

Have you tried the Dealership, give them your vin number and they should be able to cut you a key through the code book, just tell them you lost your keys.
