Luckily my versa s just needs a metal key like my home.

I had a 2010 honda and it had a chip in the key and the key doubled as the keyfob. I found a few dealers online selling the blank fob for a reasonable price. I would just need to get it cut and programmed. Other online sellers sell the blank and empty shell that you had to put the guts in for even less.

Got the dealer to cut it and a few "beach" keys.

Supposedly the early 2000 honda use a programmable chip key and home depot or lowes can program a new key for you as well as cut it. The later ones use a side cut key and the chip in the key has to be programmed to the car.

Key Replacement

I have a 2016 Note SV with keyless entry. For a backup key I went to WalMart and had a key made for $1.75. It opens the doors and starts the car fine. It has no buttons but works great as a backup or 'hide-a-key'.

When testing, make sure to leave the original key away from the car. I don't know the range the chip works at, it easily should work and invalidate your test if the original key is hanging on the same ring as the one you are testing. It may work at greater ranges, even to anywhere in the car or just outside.

As Cobb alluded to we have discovered our base modal 2016 sedans do not have any type of chip in the key whatsoever. This made my life a lot easier installing the remote start (no transponder bypass) and makes replacement keys cheap! On the downside both Cobb and I are planning to install our own power lock kits to gain keyless entry feature and that will be a few hours of dinking around on a sunny Saturday BUT $20 for a 4-door lock kit off amazon and $10 for a 12 pack of beer to help the job along and we will have gotten away a heck of a lot cheaper than buying an SV

I'd like to put the power door lock kit in my 2016 Vera S also. Maybe someday

Probably I choose Locksmith for such work because they have skills to make a duplicate key by knowing their number from sear or tumbler.So they are always the first preference if not then i will go for the dealer to make the key.

You can get those keys at your home also and by not visiting locksmith. You just need to call the dealer they will send you the key with registered car key number.

Thanks OP. I was able to find an OEM Nissan blank key online and had it cut at a local locksmith. It's just the key that I needed and it works well. The service, selection, warranty and convenience shipping to my door made this an easy purchase for me. Here's the replacement key that I purchased https://www.nissanpartsdeal.com/part...564-1hl0a.html

If you buy it from ebay, shipping will be free to you and ask your near by locksmith to cut and program it. This is the best and cheap solution for key replacement.
