Hello did you buy this from a dealer or private party?

Expert:  James replied 1 year ago.

I am very sorry to hear about the bad luck. The people need to supply you with two keys though. Since this key is restricted the only key that can remove the restriction is an admin key. The admin key is the only thing that can erase a my key. If you bought it from a third party I would ask them to cover a second key. If all else fails you can explain your story to the dealer and see if they will help you out with the cost. I know I would to try and earn a new customer. I hope this helps.
