The hide a key should be a non chipped key & only work on the locks. It should not start it, in case someone besides you find it.
If available, you can usually get them at your local home improvement store.
I didnít realize there were lock-only keys ó good info to know!

They are not.  It's just a normal, non chipped key that may happen to work in your lock. If you try & start the car with this key it can fry the computer.  This is the reason Wal Mart stopped selling them.

I got one for my truck to unlock the tailgate while the engine is running.  You have to wiggle the key slightly to lock it. If you unlock the door with it, the alarm goes off. But I have a keypad.

Very welcome. Good luck. They are sub $5. The chipped keys are silly expensive.

I donít think youíll regret it. Very nice during the warm months.

I put mine on in the warm months and then never took it off.
