These keys can't be copied due to the chip inside each key. Car won't start without it. You have two options, 1. find the asshole that stole it and get it back 2.You have to go to the dealer and get a new one. Its going to be pretty pricey JFYI, however I recommend purchasing a spare this time around. That way if you lose it again it won't need to be reprogrammed.

The car will start and die after few seconds. I have one key like that just in case i accidentally lock my good one inside.

Most dealerships will not make a spare key unless the car is actually at the dealership.

So you need to figure out how to get into that car, or see if the nearest dealership will make you a spare without the car physically there.

Same thing just happened to my friend except he lost both his sets of keys. So far it's just been sitting in the lot, in-op. Been about a month now lol... Let us know what you end up doing and how much the new key is if you go that route...

The dealer will cut a key for you if you go there with your title. I believe its north of 150 dollars to get it done at the dealer. Places like Ace Hardware can make a copy of the original and copy the chip information for about 80 dollars as well.

Call up a few local locksmiths that specialize in automotive work. There are some new tools some may have that will allow them to program SKIM (transponder) keys and they can easily cut the blanks from the VIN if you can prove ownership. The dealer can do the same thing but with the going rates for labor (even though it only takes a matter of minutes with the DRB-III scan tool after looking up the four digit pin number for your car) and the cost they'll charge you for an OEM key it will probably be a lot more than a locksmith capable of doing the same work.

If you have two keys that are already programmed to the car then it is very easy to make an additional spare key to lock up in case you need it in the future. All you have to do it buy a blank transponder key from the dealer or aftermarket, have it cut to match your key, then you can follow the procedures in the owner's and service manual to program it using a procedure that has you toggle your other keys through the ignition. Off memory I think the Sentry Key Immobilizer Module (SKIM) can have up to beight keys programmed.

If you lose one of your keys and only have one then you can still have a key cut that would get you into the car but for the car to start you'd need to get it programmed using the DRB-III scan tool at the dealer. If you ever did lose all your keys you'd probably want to get two new ones made as you won't be able to program one into the SKIM unless you have two good keys.

if anyone would steal my keys i would not trust my second keys anymore.
i would change the system as soon as i could.
they stole also the remote?

you can change only the cylinder in the drivers door and trunk lid - so the theft cannot open the car with you keys anymore.
furthermore you have to re-learn ALL your remotes.
So the stolen remote will not open your car anymore.

DODGE NEON

PROGRAMMING INSTRUCTIONS

PLEASE NOTE One programmed remote must be available for the following procedure to operate (if you do not have one please take it to your local dealer to program

1. Turn ignition to run position (as far as you can go without starting engine).

2. Using any Working remote, press the UNLOCK button for 4 to 10 seconds.

3. Within the specified 4 to 10 seconds, continue pressing the UNLOCK buton and press
the PANIC button for 1 second and release both buttons at the same time. A chime will
sound within 3 seconds to indicate that the vehicle has entered remote programming
mode.

4. Within 30 seconds of the chime, press any button on all remotes to be programmed
including previously programmed remotes. A chime will sound after each remote is
programmed.

5. Turn ignition to OFF and remove key.

6. Test all remotes.

My friend called up a dealer and they said they would not do it without his car there.. He said he would bring the title and whatever else but it's a no go

Most won't for liability reasons, though this would ONLY let you open the car, not start it.
The KEY and the CAR must be together to be programmed successfully. A towing is in order methinks...

The new keys don't operate like the old transponder keys that were 'set' when cut. The new ones have a pre-programmed chip that must be 'paired' with the car. Essentially the programming happens in the module, NOT in the key.
