    Here is what the factory service manual says.

    U must have at least one working key to program the new one u have, so u must have the car taken to the dealer to program the new key, the owners manual tells u this, do u have a manual?

The only 2 options you have at this point are as follows, Hope to some higher power you find the key, or take it to the dealer and have a new key cut and chipped, im sure that it has a securilock system, that makes it tough, Although the key itself isnt very expensive, you have to have a key cut by code, There is a special code designated to your key that can be looked up by the vin number of the vehicle and can be cut and programed that way.

Ignition Key Replacement


disconnect the battery and connect it all up and leave battery off overnight. Put the key in the ignition but not turned on. Connect the battery in one bang, wait 15 minutes for the transponder chips in key and ignition lock to be paired by the ECM.

Key Duplicated won't open door works with ignition only


Your duplicate key may be a valet key which would not let a parking lot attendant into the trunk or the doors. If you don't have the original master key, you may have to get a locksmith involved. I doubt the dealer would have key codes for a model that old.

I have a 2000 dodge intrepid. The alarm never worked on it. We bought it used and all of a sudden when we go to unlock the door it turns on. Now the car won't start. I've looked online for answers and...


The 2000 Dodge Intrepid is equipped with an alarm system that is triggered when unauthorized entry is attempted. In some situations, such as having the Intrepid valet parked or when it is being serviced by a mechanic, the alarm system needs to be disarmed so it doesn't go off. Disarming the alarm will prevent it from being activated until it is armed again.
Difficulty: Moderate Instructions

  1. 1 Insert the key into the ignition.
  2. 2 Turn the ignition switch to "ON." Do not start the engine.
  3. 3 Press and hold the valet/override button within five seconds of turning the ignition on. The valet button is located beneath the steering column.
  4. 4 Release the valet/override button after the security indicator light turns off.
  5. 5 Turn the ignition switch off.


have to do it in this order

I cant unlock my car with the remote or the key


The ignition key does NOT open the door lock on my 2004 Buick Century, but the Valet key does. I just thought that was how it was supposed to work.
