Go to dealer. You will need to give them your VIN# (for pass key) your cost will be aprox $125 per key.


You'll have to contact a locksmith. GM keeps key codes on file for 15 model years. So that's 2001 and forward. Once you get the new keys you'll have to contact your local Buick dealer to see if they can still determine which VATS (Vehicle Anti Theft System) key blank you need to start the car. There were 15 possibilities! They may be able to do it using the information from the anti-theft module in the trunk. You'll have to show proof of ownership of the vehicle. Your photo driver's license and the vehicle's registration will do. HTH. -Jim
