Hello and welcome to just answer. I cannot hear or see your vehicle so I rely on your input to my questions so I can help you better. The only way you can program a new fob on your vehicle is with a shop scanner under customization. There you can add up yo 5 keys and also program how they work on your vehicle. It's not expensive usually they charge .5 hr to do this service.

Ok. Can most locksmiths do this or is a dealer item?
Also how can i have a door key cut when i dont have one.
Expert:  Peter Bagley replied 8 months ago.

In your owner's hand book there should be a key code so you can have extra keys cut, also contacting a dealer with your vehicle's vin number they can retrieve the key code , and most lock smith's are able to do this as well. Just remember that this key will be able to just open a door not start and most likely set off the will only be good for an emergency case if you locked your fob key in the vehicle.

Thank you for the advice, I've looked for a locksmith and need to go to him. He said he cant program my blank fob with his computer cause its not compatible with my O.E.M Denso fob.
What is a good price for this at a locksmith?
Expert:  Dan replied 8 months ago.

I would say going to the dealer would be the easiest, this may cost more, but they are going to be able to program the fob.
