key programming

Asked by Mar 27, 2011 at 04:40 PM about the Chrysler 300

Question type: General

I bought my car with 1 remote and recently purchased a new additional remote just to find out I need 2 working remotes to program a new one. I was quoted $300.00 to program the new key. Does this sound right? Has anyone found a cheaper alternative???

$300 sounds insane to me. check with a more modest dealer . this is no rocket sience. it should be covered under half of the quote u have. http://chrysler300.org/

I bought my key off ebay and went to a locksmith and paid him $40.00 to program my key.

Check with a local locksmith, they can retrieve the key code from Chrysler on the Chrysler web site and will usually program remotes for much less than the greedy dealers will charge.

$300 is what it costs through a dealer. been quoted that before myself. i believe there is actually a way to program the key yourself though. try googling it.

Some vehicles will allow owner programming if YOU HAVE TWO WORKING TRANSPONDER KEYS. I am guessing you purchased such a vehicle. Locksmiths are many times much less costly than a dealer. The prior posters mention to try to google your question is a great idea, I would certainly try that. You might also try asking some of the people who sell remotes on E-Bay. Many of them will provide that answer if they believe you are asking prior to making a purchase. Some of those folks claim to be able to program remotes for you but you will need to send them the VIN and usually proof of ownership.
