Key replacement
 
He guys,

Lost my keys last night. I have the extra key with out the chip.

I got a quote for $165 to have a locksmith make me a new one.


Is there a cheaper way?

Just don't call the same locksmith that this member did :eek:

Or be sure to tell your locksmith everything that they need to know, and ask many questions so that you get the correct key for your car. ;)

It's a little late, but...

The standard drill for chipped keys is when you have two, get a third. With two keys you can program the third key yourself, with your car, saving the dealer charge for programming a key.

If you only have one key, you can't program the new key with your car, you're stuck having the dealer program the new key ($$$).

That sounds like pretty good advice :good:

Found these on Amazon:

This is the programming procedure from the Owner's Manual:

That would be $15 well spent to have 2 extra keys just sitting around :D

But I don't remember getting the PIN when I purchased my vehicle. But the dealership should be able to provide that to me so I'll be sure to get that to also have on hand. ;)

Don't order the keys I posted, those are for the Gen2. ;)

What are you going to do about programming, you don't have 2 chipped keys?

You need to fill out your profile with your location and year of mfr for your PT.

If you have a Gen 1, the Gen 2 key may not work.
Go to a Chrysler dealership with your vehicle registration and driver's license.
Get the key code and PIN from them.
It may save an extra $75 or so from the locksmith who may charge you to get the key code and PIN from Chrysler.

With the right locksmith and correct model keys in hand, you can get 2 keys cut and programmed for $50. One key cut and programmed for ~$100 is typical. $200-$250 from a dealership is common.

I have a 2001, gen 1 car.


I used the search feature, is there a way to disable the security system so I can use my non chip key?
