Chip Keys


Recommended Posts

I was just wondering, do I need to have the chip in the key? Will the car not start without it? I just want to make a spare key, but don't want to pay $30.00 for a spare. Is $30.00 the going price for a chip key for a 96 DeVille? I never had to get one made before. :blink:

Go to your local Ace Hardware. They sell car keys with chips.

My local Ace wants almost $30.00 too. I was looking on the net and found out I can get a blank for just under $12.00 I checked the Ohms and it came to about 1400 so that would be a #6.. That way I could get it done for about $15.00... There are just some things I refuse to spend a lot of money on. I understand they gotta make a living, I just don't wanna buy them a mansion too.. :D

I don't need no stinking gold spare key. :D

I stopped by my mechanic and he had one of those thingies that you put the key in to check. He said it was a #10 key. I believe he's right. I don't know how to use a darn ohm meter. :blink:

The gold keys went out of style around 2000. My dealer tried very hard to get me one a few years ago and could not.

I found some gold keys online, but no #10's that I need.
