Chevrolet cobaltAlready Tried: nothing, i dont want to ruin the computer
It is very simple. Here is how to do it. You will need one learned key to do this though.
Feel free to contact me with any questions. Good luck!

You are going to have a couple of problems. Obviously getting the key out will be the first. I have done this with a set of picks, but you may find that this will be much harder and you may have to dismantle the lock cylinder to remove the broken key. Then after the broken key is out, you are going to need to have a learned key, so if you only have the one key you are really gonna be stuck due to the fact of not having a learned key. This type of procedure can only be done by a dealer.
thats what i was afraid of, were already out $80 just to pull the code and cut the key, they said that depending what they had to do would determine if we would be charged, do dealers carry a learned key? and if so how much do they usually charge to do this?
They don't have a learned master key, they simply make your replacement key the new learned key. It requires a special scan tool to do though. I would figure around $50 to reprogram it, but that can change from dealer to dealer.
How much does this scan tool cost? I ask because im a beginner locksmith.
