Went to dealer. $165 for one key programmed.

But I got a mobile guy who can do it for the same price. Saves me towing charge.

It540291

M1178

6700. Code transmitter.

Can I just program another Chrysler key with that code? Then use it with my non chip key?

Just left Home Depot. They had the key for 74 bucks. They cut it. I have the code but the machine canít manually put it in. Only copy from another key

How in the world did you manage to lose your keys, man? I keep mine either in my left front pants pocket or on my night table by the bed. No other places. Just those two. Unless, of course, I'm driving the car! LOL I did what tuggajb suggested when I had mine. Zip tied the chipped key to the ignition module under the plastic steering wheel housing and just used the cheap $2.00 keys I had made at Walmart. Worked like a charm.

At least file a complaint with the Better Business Bureau. Many times they can be helpful with getting a refund.

Or see if he has a listing on YELP or some other social media website. Many times a negative post of their services will get a prompt reply as many smaller businesses rely on word-of-mouth advertising.

Today I got the key cut code and PIN for my PT from the dealership.

I had contacted Chrysler Customer Assistance but they said they don't have it and to contact my dealership.

Chrysler Customer Assistance probably does have it, but they probably don't want to release it because they really don't have a way to verify someones identity.

Ok, So I had a guy come out and make and program me a key for $90.

I got it cheap because I got all the codes key info from the dealer.

I returned the Home Depot key because they were not able to duplicate the programming.

I will test out fixing the key in the steering column and using a cheap key.
I ubered to a bar but had my keys in pocket. Lost em.

And what do we learn from this.

You were doing the right thing by not driving to the bar, if you had left your car keys at home, your wallet wouldn't be $90 lighter.

Thats the plan.. He had someone who can do the programming call..but that guy wants $200.. i honestly cant afford .. I just wanted him to refund me or give the other guy that money and ill pay the difference. I mean comon your a locksmith and told me that the VIN number didnt say my key was chipped! How? I googled and it clearly states this car has a transponder key...which he used those words when he text me about the new guy! Ill never go through this again.. im gonna make multiple keys.

I just started my car with a non chip key, holding the chip key close.

Iím going to secure the chip key to the steering column.

Just use the cheap ones. I live in a condo, i drove to a friends place in the same complex, then went to the bar. Hence the reason I had my keys on me.
