Sorry Scott - I think you're going to have to bum a ride somewhere. Then, possibly get your truck towed to a dealership so they can "burn" the codes into a new key.

If you get two "original" keys at the dealership, then you can program several more "spares" yourself. The first thing I did when I got my truck was to program a third key.

Sorry as Jack said, you are looking for a ride in the AM.

This is going to cost more than $80.00.

The HEC will need to be erased, and 2 new keys cut & programmed for your truck to work again.

Look for the cost of 2 new keys cut for your truck, and the HEC programming with a WDS system, so at least 15 min of shop labor on top of it ( min billing could be 30 min or 1 hr ?? ).

It is a Passive Anti Theft system and doing its job. Not able to be bypassed.
