Hi, i purchased 2 GMC Keyfobs on eBay for 40$ free shipping.

I managed to find a locksmith that is able to copy the blade and i programmed the key myself.

IF YOU HAVE THE 2 ORIGINALS KEYS you can program yourself the third one.

All you have to do is insert the first one and turn it to the ON position... Remove and insert the second one and also turn the key to the ON position... and do the same thing with the third one you need to program. This is it, it's done, every functions works perfectly, doors, trunk, remote start...

You can only program 3 keys on.

So here is my total cost : 20$ the key, 35$ to get it cut = 55$ (including taxes)

I called the dealer and they ask, here in Québec, about 250$ for a key if you loose one. 80$ the key, 30$ for cutting, 80$ for scanning the code and 57$ (half-hour of time), total 247$.

If you do that BEFORE you loose a key... remove the 137$ of the stealership... Still 110$...

My cost : 55$ including taxes.

I am down to one key for my Terrain. The other one exists, but is unavailable (long story). I am very worried about losing my one key/remote. Has there been any updates on having a third key made at any place other then the GM dealer?

you cannot purchase a blank key other than at a gm dealer or a gm parts store.

you can have it cutted by a locksmith.

but you'll need the gm dealer to program the key as you don't have the second key available to make the programmation yourself.

hope i answered your questions...

Older topic, sorry for bumping but just wanted to add that you CAN program a new key even if you only have 1 key currently programmed.

insert programmed key turn but don't start engine, remove and repeat

next insert the new key and start the vehicle

Did this about 10 minutes ago and worked like a charm on 2010 nox which I would assume be the exact same procedure for the terrain '10

also I was able to get the key from dealer already cut, they ordered it with the VIN number for $32 shipped to my door.
