Default My New to me Used 2008 Cruiser came with one key...

Hey everyone I have a quick question my new 2008 PT we just got only has one key, and I see where I can get two keys pretty cheap, they need cut and programmed. The information I see says you need two keys to program a key. Is there anyway around that? If not what can I expect to pay to have a
couple keys cut and programmed?

Thanks in advance.

Jase

Just do what I did. Go get a couple of keys made, remove the steering wheel cover and zip tie the key with the chip in it to the transponder. Then, your new keys will work just fine. I've been doing this since last August and have not had a problem at all driving the car. Cheap and easy. And if you ever decide to sell it, just remove the cover, cut the zip tie and tell the new owner you only have one key.

The only downside to this idea is not being able to remotely lock or unlock the doors on a 2008 PT Cruiser.
LionPT and buddyiramae like this.

I wonder why. I can use the remote on mine just fine.

The 2006-2010 key looks like this.

That must be it. My remote is separate from the key!
