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

Which dealer on LI did you purchase?
Paul Conte, one of their first camaros, I got it new. 43k happy miles on it now.

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.

It looks like the casting that the roll pin goes through is broken.

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.
Good info, thanks.
