I called our local locksmith. They only cut and program a key. They will cut any key but said they will only program keys that they sell. Something about viruses on keys corrupting their programming tool. They said it I got a new oem key they would cut it for me, So I'm hoping I can self program a new key with the two I own.
Viruses? I'm sorry but i know no truth to that claim. BUT i can respect them only programming what they sell. My gig is that I don't guarantee a customer's supplied key to program successfully. That has happened before and i'm not 100% sure why.
Don't worry about it, if you have two keys that start the truck, you're good for the 3rd.
