lost car key need help!!!

Hi everyone i recently just purchased a ap1 and was only given 1 key with the vehicle however i lost it a few days ago in the snow and now the dealership says i have to tow the car to them is this true? or have some of you had this experience. Can i buy a valet key and program it myself or any other way to get a key without having to tow my car to the dealer>?? thanks for any advice

IIRC all S2k's have an immobilizer type key which requires programming so the ecu will accept it. The key will still have to be cut to work in the locks and ignition. A mobile locksmith may be able to cut you a key, but unless you know how to program it, it's off to the dealership.

Yeah unfortunately that is the only way we can do a key for our customers.

If you don't want to find the key then you can also call the locksmith to get the duplicate key for you.

But it still needs to have the immobilizer set or it won't run. Better off biting the bullet and getting the dealer who knows what theyre doing to do it .

It won't run because of the immobilizer, i agree but locksmith are also able to provide that one also.

I'm not going to ask the OP the logical question, which is why did you not have a duplicate key made WAY before this? If I had only one key for anything the first thing I do is get a duplicate key made (and considering this was posted in 2014, it's probably pretty safe to assume that either a duplicate key has been procured or the OP is the owner of a car he can't drive.)
