Problem with my 2001 Chevrolet venture. 3.4 L V6 3400
Check engine light

Question = I have a 2001 chevy venture.I was given one key and like a dope I didn't make an
extra. That key was lost about three weeks ago.I need a new one and my husband refuses to
get it towed to a dealership. They told me I would have to have it towed in to have the key cut
and programmed,is this true.I have had problems in the past  of being given incorrect
information so they can make a buck off of me. Is there anyway to have the key replaced without
having it towed in. And yes it has a transponder chip in it. Isn't there any way to disable the key
computer system?

After getting a new key, you can try this procedure.....
To get a key, you will need to give the parts dept. your VIN #, show proof of ownership, and
photo ID.

With a master passkey III key (Black), turn ON the ignition, with the engine OFF.
Observe the Security telltale, after approximately 10 minutes the telltale will turn off.
Turn OFF the ignition, and wait 5 seconds.

Repeat steps 1-3 two more times for a total of 3 cycles or 30 minutes.

You must now turn the ignition OFF before attempting to start the vehicle.

Start the vehicle. The vehicle has now learned the key transponder information and the PCM
has now learned the fuel continue password.

If this does not work, you will need the dealer to use their scanner.
