How much and where to replace electronic car key?

Recommended Posts

We bought a replacement off of Ebay for about $5 for our Buick and had a friend who works for a Buick dealership reprogram it for us.


You'd have to know someone who can do it. We got lucky.


ETA: I read your post too fast. Ours was just the remote that unlocks the door, not the key. I'm sorry about that!

Dh lost his keys and had to get two keys w/ electronics replaced. $$$$$$


He opted to get the one to my car without remote door unlocks, since he rarely drives it. It was still expensive, since it has anti -theft electronic stuff. But it wasn't as much as his, which he had replaced like the original.


His theory is that they have you over a barrel. You HAVE to get them replaced and they HAVE to be reprogrammed.
