If you want to start the engine, dealer only. If you just want a key to open the doors in case you lock yourself out, then you can get one anywhere.

Really. You can do it that way.

That raises a really interesting question. If your keys get all wet and the battery/remote dies, does the engine still start? I guess the real question is, does the RFID type chip get exposed to the elements or is it completely sealed so it is impervious to water/chemical damage?

Anybody know the real answer, I sure don't?

Awesome. Build a better mousetrap, then open the backdoor to all the criminals. Verify the identity of the owners? We don't even want to open that can of worms. It SHOULD be hard to copy a key. CSAA just doesn't want to pay for this as a member service anymore, and they don't want to pay for the tows. But they sure like the reduced theft rates when their actuarials figure comprehensive insurance.

CA sucks. This is about the dumbest waste of money the state could entertain.
