Anyone ever buy key fobs on eBay? I just got mine delivered and it came with programming instructions. I came back from the dealer to get it cut ($20 CAN) and did the instructions and it all works, except for the remote start. Pressing it just pops the remote trunk. Anyone ever have this issue, or know of a fix? Thanks.

Yep - the factory remote. I thought I was getting a deal at $20; going on Youtube to watch videos on how to program the keys there are tons of people in the comments saying how they paid $30-60 to get it cut, another $50 for the key itself, and also programming fees on top of that.

Factory remote start?

$20.00 to cut the key - highway robbery, mine was $2.00 plus tax at my dealer.
Blasirl-

$2.00 to cut the Cruze Switchblade key? Did you also buy the key blank from them, or did you bring them a remote and say please cut this?

I'm one state away, but often find myself in Wisconsin. It might be a road trip time. I read somewhere that the key machine to cut the flat switchblade keys is nearly $10,000. When the 2010's came out, my dealer was ordering keys from GM parts already cut, because they couldn't justify the cost of a machine.

That's a steal for a GM switchblade key...

if any of you are near a BatteriesPlus (now Batteries and Bulbs Plus or something like that), try them. I bought a key and had them cut it for a total of $60. Worked like a charm once we figured out how to program it to the car.

I don't have remote start so my remote may be a bit different.

I bought a "Just a Key" and had my Chevy Dealer cut it. They are the ones that also told me how to program it. So far they have been great for me. Lynch Chevrolet.

Depending on how long ago you bought it, I would contact the seller. Try and get a refund or at least a partial refund. If they want the key back, and the costs associated with this work, buy another one from Ali-Express (probably where your eBay seller bought them) and swap out the cut blade for an uncut one. Use XR's tutorial for that.

This one might be the correct one, just email the seller to get confirmation before buying. That way if it doesn't work, you can get a refund (or partial) without returning it.
