Lost key fob :(
 
Any clever or more affordable ideas on how I can get a replacement key fob instead of paying the dealership $200?!!! Thanks guys!

Getting a cheaper key fob or not.....you should still take your ride to the dealership so they can disable/erase the lost key fob in your ECU. Or maybe you wake up one day and your ride is gone...

That's fine....I still am wondering if there is a more affordable way to get a replacement.

I ordered a used key fob off ebay and will have the dealership program it for me. The fob was $45 from an ebay store. Just look them up. It's not the prettiest looking key, but I just wanted it for a backup.

Although you have to go to the stealership or a locksmith to have it programed, you can get a fob or two cheaper on ebay.

FWIW, I bought a used FOBIK and it ended up frying my PCM, both needed replacement. Heads up.

hmmm...Did you have the dealership program it, or did you try it yourself? The ebay store that I bought from give you directions to program the FOBIK, but you have to already have two working FOBIK's. I only have one right now so will need to go to the dealership.

I had a key stolen from me from across the country. The dealership quoted charging me $50 to remove the old one! Are they the only ones that can do this? That price seems ridiculous.
