Title: What to do if you need a replacement ignition key
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.
Need a key, key is giving intermittent "bad key" messages and will not start the car, etc.
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.
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
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.
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.
- 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
