Who can program keys?

Hi guys, I bought keys from deautokey and had a locksmith cut it. They said I had to find another place to get a programed. Brought it to the dealership and said they cannot guarantee success but will charge me $75 regardless of outcome. They called me a few hours later and said they couldn't get it to program. I don't see why not because the electronics of the key are OEM.

Anyways, I need recommendations on places that can program keys. Has anyone gone anywhere that they have had sucess?

I am in the Boston area but can travel.

Thanks in advance.

You might have to drive a ways, or remove your cluster and ship it to him and be without a car for a couple days..

I bet some locksmith can. I've had troubles with that programmable locks for quite a while and the best solution is to hire someone. ( in my case).

I've found programming devices but they are pricey enough for you to get a specialist.

Buying programming devices can cost you more than enough so prefer getting those keys from nearby locksmith which can offer night and day locksmith services in your area.
