So I lost my spare key along with a jacket awhile ago. And I hate not having a back-up. So can I just go to Wal-Hell and get one made or do I need to go to a dealership and spend $100 on one? And if a standard key place can't make one, is there a cheaper place to get one made?

eBay. That's where I got my backup key. I actually had the key cut at an Ace Hardware here in town. The key cost me $10 (it's chipped) and the fob was $20.

Any key will do. If you don't care if it has a plastic head with the bowtie, get one from the hardware store or local lock shop and have them cut it. As long as the key fits, it's good.

I thought all the 00+ models had a resistor or chip in the key that works with the passlock system?

no chip...you can go to Walfarts, Lowes or any place that cuts keys<----- as long as you have a copy to cut off from

now if you don't have a copy you would need to go to any GM stealership with something that has your name on it with the cars Vehicle Identification Number (like insurance card or registration) and they will look up your stock key code in the system and cut you a key from there

now if the vehicle is in your parents name for instance,they would need to go there with their license... or if for some reason they can't cut it there, they will give you the vehicles code and you would need to bring that to a lock smith so they could cut it

and here's the big but.... if you have gotten your ignition or door lock cylinders replaced, and did not replace them with the code, then you're SOL unless you have that code

a little too much information I know

The dealer would like you think that so you will pay $25+ for a new key.

It's called passLOCK, not passKEY.
The security chip is in the LOCK Smile
If you can turn the lock, the car will start....

Never had to replace a key in any of my GM cars before, fingers crossed. Good to know though, you never know when you might need another one.

I'm still on my first key, the second is still brand new. If you replace the ignition cylinder, do you need new keys, does the cylinder come with a new pair of keys, or what?

A GM cylinder kit comes with the Passlock sensor, cylinder, and a bag full of springs and tumblers. You basically put the new cylinder together to match your existing key. Although I think I saw a place online that sells aftermarket Passlock kits that are already keyed and comes with two new keys. But aftermarket Passlock anything kinda scares me. Laughing

I broke the original in the trunk some time ago. So the one I have now is a copy of a copy. Sometimes I have to play with it to get the car to turn over. Maybe I'll just spend the money and get a dealer to cut me a brand new one.

Well I was at Lowe's today and thought about the key. Figured, "What the hell, I'll give it a try." $1.97 and the key works fine.

Do you need the VIN # to get a new key cut? Both my keys on the 02 are worn and I'm looking to get key's re-cut in case these stop working..

Not really, unless they're completely worn.

They are pretty worn, the 2002 we picked up has 180k miles so the key's are pretty used and old.

If you are talking a the dealer cutting a new key (not copying), then yes, you need your VIN, proof of ownership, and at most dealers, a pile of cash
