Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

A replacement key would have to be programmed to the vehicle. This will require the original, replacement key and the vehicle to be present. A scan tool is used for programming, you'll need to either see your dealer to have it programmed or you may be able to find a locksmith that has a scan tool to be able to do it.
