    When I bought my car it only came with the valet key. I bought a key off eBay and got the lock/unlock/etc part programed (disappointed it doesn't beep or honk the horn). I haven't gotten around to programing it to start the car but thought in the meantime I would at least get it cut. I have been to both a Home Depot and a lOwes and both said they cannot do it and recommended I go to a locksmith. I said I didnt need it programmed just cut and they said same thing. Any thoughts on why they cant (other than m not buying the key from them)?

    yeah we've run into this before a locksmith could do it for you but if you go to a local hardware store like an ace or True Value they can cut that key for you. but if you need to program it it's going to require the dealership to do it or a locksmith seriously if you were just looking to make a copy just unlock the doors but not start the car then yeah they could do it for you at ace or True Value
