Check some locksmiths first. Some will have the very same programer the dealer uses. That will save you at least half of what the dealer would charge. Most people think the dealer is the only one who can do that.

Why is it scary? What does a immobilizer system do?
Triple AAA also can make a credit card like key just incase the gets locked out.

An immobilizer is a security feature on your car.

Your key puts out a signal. If the car does not recognize that signal from the key, it will not start.

If that quote was from a dealership, call a lock smith to get a quote.
