    Hey all, I wanted to know how long it takes to program a key for my truck ('08) Ive heard some people have been charged for a full hour to hour and a half for labor for programing a key? that seems like bs to me.. my understanding is the trucks computer needs to be programed and paired to the key, as well the key needs to be programed. But i cant imagine that would take more than fifteen minutes of "labor"
    any ideas? i just dont want the guy to come back and try and overcharge me
    Thanks!

    Go to acehardware.com and search for locations with keymaking. I got a spare key cut and programed there for $69. Way better deal than the dealer.

    Hope this helps
