    The only key codes I've ever seen on a GM come as part of the key itself when brand new. The numbers are on the part that gets knocked out so the key will fit on a key ring. Without those, it may be a little tricky to get a key made without the services of a good locksmith. Take his bill out of your sons party money, for not replacing the spare after he lost the first key. [​IMG]

    Your other option, if you have the door key, is pull the lock cylinder out of the ignition (not that hard) and take it to a locksmith. Under $30 they can make you a new key for it. Gives you or your son an excuse to: A) tighten up the loose tilt column, B) buy a lock plate compressor ($10 at auto supply store) or C) all of the above : )

    i dont know what year they started doing it but the dealer can cut a key by pulling the vin. also cheak with a lock smith. they can rekey the ignigtion without changing the switch. it will be an original key as if you just got it duplicated. i had it done on my 69 camaro for $75.00 for home service.

    Wonder how that works? Want to steal a car, just call in the VIN, pick up the keys, drive it away? Must be something more than that, but i have heard the same, you can call GM and ask them. I'm sure you have a local dealer.

    Maybe you have to show your title/proof of insurance and a ID

    Can you get in the vehicle? If so, remove the passenger door lock; it has the key code for the doors. You will best off in getting a new ignition lock from any automotive parts store, but you'll need a steering lock plate removal tool to access the cylinder. Good luck
