I fucking lost my last fucking set of damn fucking car keys. I'm pissed as shit, i looked everywhere. The first set got lost a year ago, the spare key my sister lost, and now i lost the only set i had. How much is it to get a new key cut out and remote? Can mitsu make me a key from the vin number or will i have to change the ignition switch and locks? This sucks ass.:mad:

that sucks man. the mitsu keys are about $10 each. They CAN be cut from your vin. Dont let them lie to you, it CAN BE DONE!

I'm not sure about the remotes because I am not cool enough to have keyless entry :p

WEll, maybe they will turn up.

Can't a locksmith make you a new copy? Then for the Mitsu type key go buy a blank key and get it cut.

It's no biggie to have new keys made from your VIN. Any decent Mitsu dealer can do it.

Keyless entry will require them to either reprogram your car or program a new keyless to your car's specs. Not sure which they will do as I am under the imression that either can be done.

Whole thing should be under a hundred bucks, I'd think. By the way, get an extra set of keys done at the same time :D

Dude, it's 80 bucks for the remote, and probably like 30 for a key. then theres a 100 labour charge to program remote. Plus, i can't get the car to them for them to program it, i have no fucking keys to move the car. Anyone know how to hot wire??

I can get the black plastic mitsu key for 8 dollars, and I went to an hardware store and had a metal key made for about 2 dollars.

by the way, I got the plastic key from the dealer here in Hawaii, and I had the hardware store make a copy from the key that I already had. You can get almost any key made at a hardware store.

WOW! I think this might have posted twice on accident... my bad. Anyway, I have a little predicament. For some reason, when I bought my car, I have two keys that say stealth on them, that work in my ignition. Now... These two keys don't work in anything else, not the glove compartment, hatch, or either door. Did Dodge/Mitsu make different keys for the doors/ignition. Or did the previous owner get a new ignition and buy keys somewhere that say "Stealth" on them... So I guess my question is, how much do you guys think it would cost to get a key cut to my VIN, that would hopefully fit in my doors.

My sisters old old saturn came with a plastic spare key when it was new, is what what you're talking about? My car came with two remotes, and three keys. One of the keys worked on everything but the glove compartment, and it didn't have the black handle to it. Anyway, i'm gona get me another copy made just in case, hehe. ANd get that code or plastic key from mitsu if i can. Thanks people.

><i>These two keys don't work in anything else, not the glove compartment, hatch, or either door.</i>

As the second owner of my 1991 R/T, the first owner gave me two of the "Stealth" black plastic keys (the two that came to him with the car when it was new). Both work in everything - ignition, two doors, hatch, and glove box.

BTW, if we can get replacement blanks from the dealer for 10 bucks, how come a blank was recently on ebay for 50 bucks?

I think it's because somebody stupid was trying to sell it to someone else who is stupid for 50 bucks. which leads me to say that stupid people should not have sex, they should keep their stupidity to themselves. If they insist on having sex, have sex with animals, and even then, use a comdom, Preferable an animal that is smarter than them, that way, if by any biological fluke they have offspring, the odds are, the offspring will be less stupid then them.

Ok, seriously though, lol. I just got off the phone with my local mitsu dealer. He said "two fitty". I was like "TWO HUNDRED????. He said no, $2.50 for either an uncut or a cut key. You can give htem your vin, and for 2.50, the'll cut you a key, or just get the blank key for 2.50. That was for a 1996 3000GT. So i figure it's the same price for all other cars.
