HI,

I show the transmitter(FOB)key as a list price of $320, part number LJA2610AA

Then it should be 1 hour for programming, which will be around $125 at avg dealer labor rates.

So total around $445

Once you get it have either the dealer program it or see if your local locksmith can as most have the scan tool and software for programming them
