Default Re: replacement key

There are aftermarket cloneable keys but they won't have any of the buttons to lock or unlock the doors. And you would have to go to a locksmith that has the right machine to program them. Not all have them from what I hear. Tat would cost you around $50 I imagine.

If you want a replacement factory flip key you can obtain used ones from Ebay or other sources (seen them for abut $30.00 in the US). Maybe take it to a locksmith to get the sidewinder blank key copied form your current key then take it to a dealer as they have to do the programming of new key and old keys into the cars computer via the Tech 2 machine. This would run you about:
30 for the key
100 for the programming
20 to get it cut
150 total

Or you can just let the dealer handle everything. They will get your cars key code via you VIN order the key blade precut so it arrives to them already cut. They they would program it with the tech 2. All that would be upwards of $250. I know some members have gone this route on the board here they may have written about it i other threads. See if I can find a link.

Some discussion here: http://www.saturnfans.com/forums/sho....php?t=202303&

And if you can find a generous dealer they may throw in the programming if you buy the factory part from them. That seemed to happen with a few guys in this thread: http://www.saturnfans.com/forums/sho...light=flip+key

Go to an "authorized Saturn service facility", or a Cheveeee dealer. I got one made about two years ago at now the defunct Saturn dealer, and it cost me about $85.
A very good price for the whole wad, (key & programming), so figure it will cost you at least that amount. If it costs more than $150, they just want to gauge you.
