    On my 2019 MT, you have to press the unlock button on the key, which is a key and fob in one. No keyless option.

    I'm no expert, this is what I know. These are the keys I bought, used a couple have more to sell. They're the H chip, I had them cut at my hardware store from the original key. Did not program them. They unlock my doors manually and start the engine. But, since they're not programmed they don't lock and unlock and arm the truck with the actual buttons.

    One day I'll get around to ordering the Techstream and program my keys.

    Hope this makes sense.

    I did the same thing for the same reason, except paid the dealership $10 for a non chip key.

    He told me if I ever tried to start the truck with the non chip key, the truck would have to be towed to them and reprogrammed or something like that. Said it would cost at least a grand.

    Holy crap! Is this true? Can anyone that doesn't work at a dealership confirm this? That is crazy. "[Inserts wrong key] Dammit, I've totaled my new truck!!!"

    Guy was full of spit. I’ve tried to start my truck with the blank key several times, just to make sure someone can’t off with it, and that never happened to me. The truck starts one time, then if you try to put it in gear, it shuts the engine off. If you try to start it again, the starter turns, but the engine doesn’t fire up. Use a chipped key and the truck starts right up.

    Is everything the same on the 2018's as the 16's?

    I'm not brave enough to try it.
