I did a dumb thing a couple of weeks ago and drilled a hole in the middle of the handle of my key to put it on my keyring (handle was broken). I’m an idiot, lesson learned. Stuck it in the ignition, tried to turn it, it obviously wouldn’t start. Realizing I am stupid, I sent it off to the dealership to get a new key made.
What should have been a 200 dollar repair turned into 1400. They cut the key and tried to program it and apparently it would not work. They thought it was a problem with the wiring in the ECM, so they ran all the wires and found nothing wrong. They said it might be the ECM itself and replaced it with a new one. Still not working.
They’re trying to charge me a ton for labor but I don’t have a car that works. Before I throw up my hands in frustration is there ANYTHING that could be the issue here that the dealership is missing.
I have had a persistent problem with the air blowing on max no matter what for about 6 months- they vaguely said that may have had something to do with it.
