#15 of 21 Need Ignition key made, Dealer wants 110.00??

I'm trying to see if there is a way to buy a blank key off the net and then have the dealer cut it and program it. Has any one tried this or is there a better way.

I hate to say it but not a bad price. I bought a blank key off of ebay and found a locksmith that will do it for $75.00. Call around, there were some locksmiths that wanted more than the dealer.
#19 of 21 Self-Programming Ignition Key for 2001 Pathfinder
Dec 07, 2012 (9:11 am)
I have a new key blank that I will want to program myself and I lost the directions I had. FIRST - Please don't tell me it can't be done. I already did it once. I bought a second key blank about two years ago, had it cut to match my good key, and then reprogrammed it myself using directions that came with the key. They were the kind of directions like, "...wait 3 seconds, turn key to accessory position,...". The directions worked, but I lost my second key. I have only one key left (the original) but the link on it is broken so I NEED a second key again (plus, I want to have a backup). Can anyone please tell me how to do this? I can't find any posts in this forum or even on the internet. The internet seems to cover only fobs and people who say keys require a professional job (BULL!). Once again, there IS a way to do this, I've done it before. If you know how or where I can find how to do it, I would really appreciate it.

OK, now I'm wondering if I'm wrong. That stinks, especially given how sure I felt (and nearly feel now). I can find nothing about programming a 2001 Pathy key online.
Maybe I'm misinterpreting my memory of "I did not take my key to a dealer" as "I did not take my key to anyone for programming." In addition, I might be creating a fake memory of programming the key when I'm actually just remembering the time I programmed a second fob/remote . Maybe I did pay for programming but at the same place I had my key cut?
I could swear I programmed the second key I had. Maybe I'm plain wrong. If so, it's killing me because I feel so darn sure about it. I wish I could know for sure.

Now I think I should retract my self-correction. Oy! I took my blank key to Home Depot in Springfield, NJ. Their locksmith booth is rented by a subcontractor whose employee told me that my Pathfinder 2001 transponder key needs to be reprogrammed using the vehicle. He could not help me. (I did not ask if he or his employer could help while someone watched their booth. )So, since my SUV is required for programming, does this mean there IS a way for me to do it with the key I already have. Can someone out there help me figure this out?
