Commodore VE SV6 3.6L
Hi I have a 2010 Holden Commodore VE sv6 and it’s in the shop at the moment. They need 2 car keys to reset the computer or something like that... I only got 1 from the dealership and was told it will cost 600 for another key... anyway I want to know the cheapest way to get one I’ve spent so much already... can I get another key from someone with the same model? Or do I have to buy another key

$600 is BS, they are just trying to hoodwink you.
You can get a Key on eBay for approx. $50, get it cut and programmed in for approx. $90 at a locksmith.
that's the approx. price in Oz,
I shouldn't think its much different in NZ.

You’re getting scammed.

No one needs two keys to do that. No one.
