2011 Impala: Self-Re-program New Key?
My father’s car up in New England. He had cut a new key at a lumber yard and apparently had it re-programmed at the dealer, but the key has never worked properly. It gets stuck in the ignition and you have to jiggle it to get it out. It doesn’t get used except when we’re visiting and my brother is up there now asking me about it. I told him I thought the key was never cut properly, but wasn’t sure if my father could’ve re-programmed the new key himself. Some vehicles allow this.
If we cut him another key, is this one of the vehicles that allows self-re-programming, or is it a trip to the dreaded dealer??
This is not a “fancy” model Impala. Just your run-of-the-mill variety. If it were my car I could tell you exactly, but that’s all I know about this one.
