Hi, we recently couldn't find both of our regular keys and were left with the grey valet key only. We've found the two keys but now I want to make some extra grey valet keys. When I looked at the user manual, it stated that the valet key had no battery in it (and also not to break open the grey plastic :) ). I wanted to know if I can get additional grey valet keys cut anywhere - I called the dealer they predictably said it was a special program and it would cost $100 per key plus labor. Is there some chip or something inside the grey plastic? Where can I get the key cut ?
Thanks (94303 USA)

The key can be cut, and (yes) the original key has a built-in chip that has to be programmed. That is the expensive part. I believe some HomeDepot stores can program some keys of some brands. I am not sure if Acura is in the list they can program.

You might also check Walmart. They do some programming too. A locksmith would be less expensive and you could even by a key on eBay.
