Copy of keys.

Ok so I painted my key...looks nice for about 3 weeks. Now I ruined the buttons while sanding. I'm just gonna learn from the ignorance, and buy a new one. Can I get the blank key made at say, Walmart or Home Depot? I'd rather not do my local dealer. They suck at customer service and matters like this.

Will a standard key work? I thought there was a chip or something inside that is required to start the car.

I would by the Key off of Ebay and then take it to anyone that cuts keys.
Then you will need to program it with both of the keys that came with your car.

You can have them made to just unlock the car or to unlock and start.

Yeah the place I'm getting it from also includes instructions. I don't use the mykey feature anymore. The chip is in the inside. Not on the key part. Correct? I would take to the dealer I bought it but, damn. 2 hours for a key?

I found them for 99.99. The boss 302 set is $302. I highly doubt a standard key will be over $100. I'm fine with paying that $100 too. My ignorance taught me something. Google first.

I found it for $99/$100. It's oem too. I'm wondering if it could be made at Home Depot or Walmart or somewhere like that. Small town, small choices. It's not like the old Taurus where they had a tiny chip in them. I think its all in the inside. I have paint mist on it and it still works fine.

WalMart or Home Depot around here wouldn't even try to cut the key. It didn't fit in their machine. I went to the locksmith and they cut it. Only chraged me a dollar

Just out of curiosity, nothing negative, but why did you paint your key?

Lawl, but seriously. A GT owner air brushed his. And it looks damn good. High high high end cars like Ferrari and some Porsches have color matched keys. It looked nice when I first did it but it wore off. I re did it. Then after that looked like crap I plasti dipped it. My God that was an amazing job for two coats. Now I peeled it off and sanded it down. I'm gonna put a race red cover over it and either live with it or order a new one. Depends on my mood toward the cover.

I'm learning that doing research is always key and ignorantly going into a project is a bad idea. Here is why....

Read the owners manual on how to program a new key if required.

White Lightning is my hero

I'm telling you that White Lightning is no different then I was when I was his age. He is not afraid to tackle anything he wants to do. When he does screw up he admits it and asks for help in getting things back on track. I have been following his posts since I joined this forum and admit I have learned a lot.

White You are a true "CAR GUY"

Yes. You can buy a new housing but with my string of bad luck with the project, I'd be minus one key

---------- Post added at 07:28 AM ---------- Previous post was at 07:26 AM ----------

3 threads, and lots of advice. If only I had this before instead of during.

Don't get me wrong. It looks nice, but unless a body shop does it and clears it, its not gonna last. I just bought a red silicone cover

There is a pry point. But if assume its one time only glue. Any glue would possibly mess up the internals. I'm playing it safe now.

No, we're not that complicated. Chrysler loves to over complicate things. Ford Key Fobs are easy!

Coty just get a dime or nickel and it comes right off. I messed with the Fusions when I had it as a rental. Enterprise would probably charge me for that.

It doesn't have a chip on the outside though. We have a Russell do it center and they cut the older style ford keys.

My logic! I don't want to mess up those internals. The casing is $60 while the whole new key is $100

We are from Alabama. Not to sound like an idiot, but most just use a credit card or hide keys. Few years back EVERYONE thought it was a good idea to have a spare mounted somewhere. Thieves caught on and we stealing cars left and right.

I dropped mine when I had the two piece key system, it broke the little thing that kept it on the key ring.

I just did a quick google search, and there is an Alabama Locksmith Association, so there must be some in the state.

That's no bueno they also help Tennessee.. Alabama can't compromise with Tennessee since they're talking to Georgia, about moving the border back.

That's been in the works for awhile. One of these days. As for locksmiths, no doubt there are some in Alabama. But my little town of 1,600 ish, slim to none.

Plastic dipped and then put cover over it. It's bright red, not orange. Just how my lights are in my ceiling fan.
