Found this one, and others like it. This it says that if you have 2 remotes you can program it. And obviously take it to a smith to get it cut. But what about the chip in for keys that is required to start the engine? Is this a generic chip? Because from what I can tell it doesn't say anything about that.

Anyone have this or one like it that didn't come from the factory?

ive used many aftermarket keys, am using so 2 right now, when I used to install and never had a problem with them. As far as the flip key is there is a thread over on SVTP of a guy that did this with his car but he had to modify the black plastic piece so that it would fully insert inside the key hole

I've looked into this and without the key with the chip programmed by the dealer it won't start the car. That's what I've been told.

your right they wont but if you have both of the original keys you can program a third by yourself or otherwise you will have to take it to the dealership to have them program the codes onto those keys

Step 1: Insert working key 1 and turn till the lights come on on the instrument cluster.

Step 2: Remove key 1 and insert working key 2 and repeat process.

Step 3:Insert nonprogrammed key and start car.

remember that you need both (2) of the original keys in order to do this process

I was thinking about it as well but would serve no purpose if you have an aftermarket alarm

Is it really that simple if you have 2 working keys?...The way it's described seems like I could just buy this flipkey from eBay, get it cut for my car, and then do this process:

Step 1: Insert working key 1 and turn till the lights come on on the instrument cluster.

Step 2: Remove key 1 and insert working key 2 and repeat process.

Step 3:Insert nonprogrammed key and start car.


And that's it?

No that's not it at all.

Follow the instructions in this post and it'll work.

Happy Thanksgiving!
