When I bought my car, it had no remote, just plain old keys, no buttons, nothing. I have two of them. Do I need a new "master key" to add a key with remote to the car? Car does not have remote start, though I would like to add in the future. Could I just buy this and use with an existing key blade or is it not that simple... ... B00M38PDP4

Thanks all. Car is in for recalls and I'm trying to find ways to waste even more money while I'm not driving it :roll:

You won't be able to use that remote on its own without a new blade to go with it, getting it cut and programming of this new blade/chip to the car.

To avoid some of these expenses, what you could do is get yourself a flip key and use an existing key blade in it by cutting and modifying it to replace the blank one that comes with it. I used this one however I had the blanks cut (at $30/key). You would still need to buy an actual remote to use its innards. You would need to dig out the security chip out of one of your current keys. ... 4c4dTFguIg
