Great Key Fob Success on Ebay

Purchased my 2006 Jeep a few weeks ago. Only had one key fob and it was pretty beat up. Checked out eBay and found a reliable seller, remotes.inc Purchased a brand new OEM one for $74, it arrived in 2 days. Took it to a dealer and it cost me $40 to cut and program it. Well worth it. If I had 2 keys I could have programmed it myself but with 1 it's either a dealer or locksmith. So if your in need of one, check them out.

Re: Great Key Fob Success on Ebay

I actually have a new key fob that should be arriving tomorrow. Bought the key on ebay from extra-partss for $30. Comes uncut with a chip inside. My dealership told me it'd be $180 for a new fob and $35 to program. New key will be $15 to cut and $35 to program. Can't beat it. Here's the link.

Re: Great Key Fob Success on Ebay

I never even thought of searching for that. Great find! Got the key in today. Looks a lil bigger and feels way sturdier than the original. Can't wait to get it cut and programmed so I have a working fob again. I'll def order that logo replacement the next time I place an order on ebay!

Re: Great Key Fob Success on Ebay

Ive called a local locksmith to see how much they would charge to do a new key and they quoted $300+. I only have one key fob for my jeep so I am screwed and have to pay dealer fees to make a new one. My question is can a locksmith make a new key with only one previous key fob?

Negative. Go to this link http://www.ebay.com/itm/360524764975...84.m1497.l2649. Order that key. Should be there by Friday or Saturday depending on where you live. Dealership should charge less than $20 to cut and less than $50 to program. Locksmith might be able to cut it for cheaper but doubt they can program.
