Are you in the right car? LoL I know for a fact that some keys are repeated to open door s but different combination to start the engine. I didthis when iI NAD a carrola Key unlocked the door but didn't start! Is the key original?or walwart made

Neither. It's made by a locksmith. I will take it back, but was wondering if this particular car had some glitch that I wasn't aware of.

Other keys may have a chip for anti thieft

How can I find out if that's the case? There is an antitheft device on the car...

Usually there is a etching one of the windows manly driver side. Or you can contact your local dealer. Google is a great help just a lot of researching

I went to the dealer yesterday and it cost me $130 to have a key made that works the ignition. Apparently due to the computer chip for anti theft. I miss the old days when you could change your own oil and get a key made at the hardware store... Thanks everyone for your answers!
