What is a "dealer key" ?

Not sure what you mean by "dealer key"
Quote:
Why would a dealer require a vin?
If you either do not have a key for your car, or your key is extremely worn, the dealer can use the VIN to look up the pattern and cut a new key, just like the one that came with the car originally
Quote:
But walmart cuts keys never ask for vin?
Because when Walmart is cutting a key, they are copying a key that you gave them to copy. If you don't have a key, Walmart can't make one for you. If your key is worn out, your copy will be a copy of a worn out key.
