I am well aware that we can avoid paying the dealerships fee and get a replacement key from ebay, pay someone with a fancy laser machine to cut it and then program it ourselves. Even with all that effort we can save about half the price that GM would charge. I'm wondering about the style of keys, for our trucks we have the traditional style key with a separate fob. Some other GM models (GMC Terrain/ Chevy Equinox in particular) have the flip/ switchblade style. I believe the working end of the key is identical and they both have the "chip" for programming. (correct me if I'm wrong) So the question is, can we use either style for a replacement? I really want to get a spare for both my truck and my wife's car. But obviously a replacement/ valet key does not need a fob, so if possible I would just get the "truck" style key for both if that works. I believe others might be interested in making a switchblade that works with their trucks if that is possible. So if anyone has tried this, I'd love to hear about your findings. Thanks in advance.
