Method 1: Read the VIN through the windshield (on top of the dashboard on the driver's side, way down in the corner of the windshield). Contact your dealer and order a key for that VIN. Be prepared to provide ID or proof of ownership - that's to protect you from thieves getting a key dishonestly.

Method 2: Call a locksmith and have the locks re-keyed. This will probably be much more expensive, but faster.

I keep a spare key attached to a ring on my belt. It's come in handy when I locked the keys inside or misplaced them.

Call the dealer and give them your VIN number (18 digit # on left front of dash). They should have the key code on file.

2010 Malibu key wont go into ignition switch


The tumblers may have collapsed. In which case you would have to replace the switch. They can be replaced if you can get the key in.. If you get a replacement you can try forcing it, if it locks up you will have to drill it out to get it replaced.

DIY Replacement Ignition KeySubject: DIY Replacement Ignition Key
Title: What to do if you need a replacement ignition key

Overview:

There are times where you may need a replacement key. This can be the cause of a lost key, a key going bad, upgrading from the non all-in-one key to the all-in-one key.

Please keep in mind that if all keys are lost, there is NO WAY to program a new key to you car and a replacement TWICE module will have to be found with a key, either new (costly) or used and be married to the car via the dealer.

Symptoms:

Need a key, key is giving intermittent "bad key" messages and will not start the car, etc.

Experience Level:

Easy

Tools Needed:

Probably none, or a small tool to take the door off of a key via the hole in the side for the all-in-one key.

Time Needed:

Not much.

Parts Needed:

Key Blank from Dealer about $40 This is cut to your car.
Key Top from Dealer about $40 This is the "key guts"
all-in-one guts from Dealer about $90
all-in-one guts from ebay about $30-$60
key door from dealer for all-in-one key about $15

Procedure:

There are a few cases that can be covered

Case 1: Non All-in-one key replaced by non All-In-One key.

Subcase A: Have a non all-in-one key that is going bad

Solution: The dealer will have a replacement top for the key. Get the top, replace the top of the key and have it reprogrammed for the car. Total cost about $40 + $30.

Subcase B: Replace with all-in-one key because they are neato and / or the other key is lost.

Solution: Order the "Key Blank" from dealer and obtain the guts for the all in one key from ebay or the dealer. Have keys programmed by dealer. Total cost about $35 + $30 + guts cost.

Case 2: All-in-one key replaced by All-In-One key.
Subcase A: Have key but is not working.

Solution: Get guts and have it programmed. Cost about $30 + guts cost.

Subcase B: Lost key, need a new key

Solution: Get Key Blank and guts and have it programmed. Cost about
$35 + $30 + guts cost.

Outcome:

Very nice. Replacing the non all-in-one with the all-in-one dramatically increased the range of the remote. over the banana style remote.

Notes:

- Replace the battery in the guts if you get them off of ebay.
- You have to have all keys and remotes to dealer for programming.
- The guts for the non all-in-one key do not have the remote guts
- The guts for the all-in-one key have the security and remote in one
- The key shaft from the ebay all-in-one key can be discarded

Help! I have broken the black casing around the only key for my husband's 1989 Ford Taurus. He says the key is now useless due to some kind of sensor sytem in the key related to anti-theft. Is this the...


Hello Kcook.
I don't believe the 1989 model had anti-theft on the key.
These came out in later years.
You will be OK to get another key cut to replace it.

Thank you for using FixYa.

you might need to replace ignition key cylinder assy and replace current key, now, sometimes if this is a automatic transmission it might have problem with shifter interlock cable try moving shifter from park to first and back to park and try removing key again, but if key gets stuck and car won't start, does the key turns? does the engine cranks? are you using the correct key?

My key will not enter the ignition in my 2004 cadillac deville. It was working OK this morning. Now it won't.


One of the tumblers in the lock cylinder has fallen and is jamming key. Cylinder will need replacing. Try gently tapping on cylinder ring and key while trying to insert key . If you do get it to turn, don't shut it off till you can get it somewhere to replace cylinder.

How do I replace the ignition (keys's lost) in the steering?


did u get a key that was the proper code? these keys have a little piece of resistive wire embedded in the key, does the key u had made have that? if not it will not work, u can't just get a key cut, they have numbers to select the proper resistance value for the key to work with your security system.

Keys do not open doors just the keyless remote


Sounds like someone replaced the ignition. The vibe uses one key for all locks and if you replace just one the key wont work. you might see if the dealer can get a factory replacement from the factory key code. you will need to get a new key with the factory code as well but this should solve the problem.

IS IT POSSIBLE TO GET REPLACEMENT KEYS


Go to a dealership with your registration, title, and photo ID. They'll be able to look up the key code based on the VIN of the car and cut you new keys. OEM keys aren't cheap but it's the only way to go, and it's much cheaper than replacing or re-keying all the lock cylinders.
