  • Take the vin number to the dealer and have them make you a copy. It may cost you a little but then you have the keys.

  • That would depend on the car really...I think a lot of newer cars have a chip in the key that is needed to start the car. I would take it to a dealership if that is the case...otherwise you can go to somewhere like a Walmart automotive section and make a spare for a buck or two.

  • Walmart or lowes, some kinda home store, like home depot...they all cut keys...and depending on your car type they can cut a car key for you, i had a key cut for my dodge neon

  • You can go all kind of places to get the keys made. I am pretty sure that Walmart is even doing keps with chips in them now.

  • If you have a newer car with a computerized key, the blank will cost anywhere from $35 - $75 dollars. If it is an older car that isn't computerized, go to Lowe's, Home Depot, or anywhere that can cut a key.

  • If computerized, dealership. If not Walmart, locksmith, or hardware store. I suggest two copies instead of one.

  • Walmart does it here in our town. Or the car dealership. Put the key in your purse or on a chain in your pocket.
