Default Lost All My Car Keys :/ Help!!!

Lost my keys for my 04 Grand Prix. It's a long story that surprisingly doesn't involve alcohol. They're roughly 13 hours away in Minnesota and the hotel can't seem to find them even though I know exactly where they should be in the room. Just wondering the most cost effective replacement, apparently from what I've read I can call a locksmith or potentially go through the dealership.

I'd call the dealership and see if they can cut some new ones. If there's any transponder type deal the dealership's probably the only one that can do it; but they should be able to make new ones if you give them the VIN. They might require you to bring proof of ownership or possibly even the whole car to them to do the work.

I just went through this not too long ago but luckily found my key, lol.

The transponder can be programmed once in the car.
To get in the car on the cheap, buy a blank key that fits your door lock.
Use some magic marker on the edges that are flat but would normally have the saw tooth pattern.
Insert the blank in door lock and twist back and forth to leave impression in the ink, dry erase may be easier to see than Sharpie.
Use a triangle metal file to manually 'cut' the ridges, it's going to take some trial and error, and a vice to hold the key during this filing is helpful.
The more worn your lock is the better this method works.
The transponder to start it can be found much less than dealer prices at some locksmiths.
This method will get you in the car and if you cut careful enough, another 'real' key can be cut from your handiwork.
Good luck.

Well I had two sets but one of my chipped keys had to be sacrificed for my remote start. I might call the hotel again tomorrow and triple check. Hopefully they don't need my car at the dealership because it would need to be towed.

I can already get in to the car I don't lock it at work since it's a gated facility and there's nothing to steal out of it right now.

Hey, don't reveal my previous endeavors

BTW - I lived in Newark NJ for a portion on my life, these things are a given there.

The transponder will and my ghetto method + your transponder = starting vehicle.
