I was not aware that this could be done? This should be added to the DIY!


Thanks

you can just buy the key in the second link .
I am not getting any key's made , i was just
looking into the possibilities of re-coding
a used key . The guy who i have talked to
has done several new key's for a friend .
So im sure he can still do a key for you .

I need a spare key made and have my original key fixed. The unlock button does not work. It feels like a broken piece underneath the actual unlock button. Can you send me the contact information for your buddy who could/would make a replacement? Thanks for your help!
