Old thread but my dealer charges $75 to program "any number of keys and remotes at the same time". So I bought a couple extra keys and remotes off eBay and had them all programmed for $75.
If memory serves me right they said they have to have all the keys and remotes together, even the ones you currently have to program a new key. They're programmed "as a set" so to speak. I think that's what they said, unless that varies by model or I misheard.
The eBay keys and remotes worked fine but I did make sure they had decent reviews, they look identical to my originals, may be OEM for all I know, and didn't buy the first key that popped up in a google, eBay, or Amazon search.
I wanted to know if it's a proximity thing or the key needs inserted, I think I asked here before and it people think it needs inserted. If proximity, I wanted to just hide a key in the steering cover and use whatever key blank I wanted. If I didn't have three kids I'd be figuring out a work around because I don't care or need it, Id guess someone's done it by now?
