$50 bucks is what I think our keys are to replace. Wife's Sebring only came with one when we bought it used and it cost me $100 for the 2000 vert'. Seems like I asked my dealer around then what it would cost me if I lost one and needed it made. I could be wrong though.

That definitely does suck. Looks like you got good use out of that key!

Which dealer on LI did you purchase?

bought my car used and only had one key, bought one at a dealership, it had to be matched using the Vin number and was sent to the dealership after being cut, then you can use the self program if your car is a 2010, if not the dealership I believe will have to do the programing(correct me if wrong) I think the key was 53 when I bought it in 2010. have no idea what the program would be, guessing less than and hour of shopt time rate if I had to guess. looks like you have a 2010 so you should be set with the self learn. in a nut shell you put your existing working key in the ignition and turn it to the on position, remove key and put the new key in the ignition and turn it to the on position, the DIC should display "_ key learned" or something to that effect, bang....key programmed!

program is easy if you have a working key to put in. I got a key cut at the dealer for 60 dollars and they showed me how to program. Don't let them charge you to program. It is easy.

Put in the good key turn on the car
Turn off the car remove the key
put in the new key within 10 secs and the new key will be programed.

When you put in the new key do you turn it?

How does this happen? Were you using it is a last ditch effort in a bare-knuckle brawl? I've never had a key just snap in two before.

I'd ask the dealer first. They might still replace it for you.

There was an detailed article on this forum on how to take your key apart and put it back together. Perhaps it can help.

I've never either until now, and I've owned a LOT of cars. Honestly I'm pretty gentle with it, I don't even hold it forward when starting like a normal key because as we all know the starter detent acts really like a push button. 43k miles of use thats not even that much.
