raine, FYI--Ordered this key and it did NOT come with a transponder. Big plus was I didn't have to dig the transponder out of the switchblade key. All I had to do was put transponder that came out of my valet key into the empty transponder bay. I like this switchblade key better than the old "Rogue" key..

If I read it right, Bladehopper82 said he didn't bring a spare key and the dealer programmed the blade key. So either his version came with a transponder, or the dealer put one in. This is why I guessed that there had to be a spot for the transponder in there somewhere.

Thanks for the pic though... shows exactly where the transponder goes. I might order one of these blade keys now.

Glad it worked out for you. I really like this key. Small and you barely notice it in your pocket.

Correct, the one I bought had the transponder in it. I believe he bought from the same guy, but a different listing as the original no longer exists. The original listing did say transponder was included. I didn't really look at the new listing.

Is it possible to just swap the keyblade and the transponder from your valet key to this one?

Hello, yes to the transponder, but no to the key blade. The key blade that swings open is one piece unique to this key. You can get different places to cut it.

What to do do if you have no valet key? My 2016 SV CC only has two regular keys?

2016? You should have received 2 main keys, 2 remote keyless fobs, and 1 valet key at the time of purchase. I'd go to the dealer you bought it from and ask for the valet key - you're supposed to get it, it's not optional.

I just completed this mod and wanted to share my experience.

I ordered the key from the linked ebay listing found in this thread. I pulled out my transponder from the Valet key that was given to me when I bought the truck. Every single locksmith company wanted over a $100 to program/cut keys/touch the vehicle, so I skipped all of these businesses. I decided to give the dealership a call, to see what they could do for me. They said $52 to program everything.

When I got to the dealership, I explaied to them that they transponder inside of the key that I put into it from the valet key was already programmed. I explained to them that all I needed was to have the key cut...and to my surprise, they cut the key for free. All I had to do was provide proof of ownership. Took them about 10 minutes.

Once the key was cut, I referenced an article that shows how to programe the lock/unlock/panic remote buttons. Truck started perfectly and remote works great.

Glad I was able to get this done without to much of a headache.

Mine should be delivered any day now... ordered from the same link, when I did the Rogue key swap I went to a local ACE hardware store, they cut the new key for free, no questions asked. After reading other people's experiences trying to get the dealer to do it I didn't even bother, instead I was in and out of ACE in about 5 minutes tops.
