    which spare keys to get

    hello everybody,
    when I bought my car there was only 1 set of keys. I like to always have a spare just in case but when looking at keys i see some have numbers like #3 vats, and #12 vats. How do you know which set to get. If it matters my car is a 97 eldorado etc. If this is posted somewhere else im sorry. I did find the thread on how to program it just dont know which style to get.
    thank you
    Jim

    If you have a VOM, measure the resistance of the pellet in your original key, then compare it to the chart in post #1 in this thread:

    Or, call a dealer with your VIN, and ask.

    soif I was to just bring the key and vin number to the dealer they could tell me, would probably be the easiest

    Yes, but they'll charge you $30+ for one. Buy one cheap on Ebay, and take it to any locksmith to cut it.

    Take the key to Ace Hardware (probably any hardware store). They can match and cut it for about $20.
