Hello and welcome to just answer. The dealer or a mobile lock smith can cut/program a new key fob using the scan tool. They will look up a PIN number based on the vehicle's VIN number and will then be able to get you a new programmed fob. It may be easier to have the lock smith come to you. That way you will not need to tow the car to the dealer.
