I lost my keys today.
I have a spare set, luckily, but I want to have two sets. Do I need to go to the dealer to have the PassKey coded or something?

sucks... I've never lost a set of keys in my life...

Grab a multi meter, measure the resistance on the chip. Buy a new chipped key with the same resistance and then have it cut.

Here's the key chart

seriously?
I just need to test the resistance and buy a keyblank with the same resistance?

...

that sounds easy enough.

Thats correct.
Now if you want to bypass the system, put 7.5K ohm resistor (or in series resistors) into the mate where it comes out of the steering column (small ga. orange & wht IIRC)
That tells the system the correct resistance key is in there & you dont need a chipped key. Search for more detail & pic on this forum

but I'd still have to buy a key blank

I got a set of blanks with the right transistor for $12 and a new remote for $12.

Just letting you know.
When the wires break (because they're so frail...some do & some dont) you'll start to get the passkey fault & car wont start.
Now you know what to do

Nope, its a unique 2 wires that check the resistance.
Once bypassed downstream, nothing matters upstream.
On the other hand, your disabling the VATS.
Unless its worth stealing it's no problem

You can get aftermarket key blanks for a few bucks each.
