How much is the usual price to replace the lost key and how to tell if it is a coded key or not. Have the spare set, lost the one ignition key. Do you have to go to a dealer, or can you buy them someplace else.
How can I tell if it has a microchip. Looks just like a regular key to me, has a black plastic top, but so did my old 78 chevette.

I'm assuming you have a regular key, and not something with fancy electronics in it.

If you have the spare set, you can get a copy made at most hardware stores, although the last time I did that, the new key was a little cloogy. It only cost a few bucks.

If it's an electronic key, you'll probably have to go to the dealer, and it might cost around $250.

The dealer or a reputable locksmith can make a new key. However, you probably will have to produce a valid id and registration for security reasons. The key can be cut at the dealer by the VIN.
