RE: [DML] Cutting Keys


The good news is that any locksmith should have key blanks for you, it's
a Volvo key, and it's cut on a standard machine.  The GM dealer just
didn't have the blanks or assumed yours were too valuable to possibly
mess up.  

Start by heading to the local locksmith and pay the guy $6 or so to cut
you two keys from his blanks, if they work, you know that he's not an
idiot, you have 2 more keys, and you can get your nicer blanks cut with
little concern.  

If they don't, you lost $6 - a world record cheapest problem you can
have with your car.  Manually compare them to your key, he may have not
ground deep enough, or your original key may be worn to the point it
barely works and dupes just don't cut it.  Mine is right on the edge,
half the keys cut by local blacksmiths work the first time, others just

If you can't get a good key by duping yours try carefully removing the
headliner panels on your doors - odds are there is a key code written in
magic marker there that DMCH (or others? - but definitely DMCH) can use
to cut you a new perfect key.  Even the kid at the hardware store should
be able to copy a fresh new one once you have it.
