Default 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

Help!! Lost keys in vent on dash!!

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

Found these on Amazon:



https://www.amazon.com/KeylessOption...ler+PT+Cruiser

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





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

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?
