Be glad it isn't a Volvo. I lost my key/fob for my wife's car. $500 and two visits later, it was replaced/reprogrammed by the stealer. I chased every viable option - there are none. At least on my Ford, you can program the keys yourself!

I know that the insurance companies insist on them but chipped keys on motorcycles are a PITA!
