The Pontiac GTO key. It’s big, it’s bad, and we love it! Sometimes these bad boys need to be replaced though. The rubber pieces over the “Lock” and “Unlock” buttons on the FOB have a tendency to wear out. And don’t even get me started on how small they made the trunk release button on the key FOB, So anyways, this is the process for getting a new key.
Need a new key for your 2004-2006 Goat? I’ll show you where to get the key and how to program it yourself.
You can get new GTO keys from here: GTOG8TA.COM
You will need to have your new key cut. I’m assuming you have at least one working key, so find a Auto Dealership parts counter that cuts the GTO style key. Hint: Hyundai’s and Kia’s also use these style keys. I also just recently had a new key cut at a Chevy Dealership. Just make sure where ever you go to have the key cut can laser cut the key. Once your new key is cut, you now need to program it so it works with your vehicle.
