I went to get a new key cut, and was not worried about spending 2 bucks then finding it was no good due to needing a chip-type key, I thought I would try it, then I would know.
The hardware store guy said that he would not adise this, as a GM truck owner did it, and the inserting of the non-chip key caused deletion of access in the computer, and the truck had to be towed.
What I need to know is:
How do I tell if I have a chip type key?
I want to avoid shopping at the dealer, if I can.
The vehicle is a 2001 GC Laredo and has some kind of alarm fitted that flashes a light on the top of the dash when the thing is locked.
