I purchased a 2016 Spark LT1 2 weeks ago from a Seattle Chevy dealer and I needed a 2nd key fob made. The parts department ordered it and it came in a week. They cut the key fine but when they tried to program the fob the car wouldn’t go into programming so they had to connect the car to their computer and and it went fine. The service advisor said some of the Spark ev fobs need to be programmed that way. $62 for the fob, $68 to program it., but I got the salesman to cover the programming part. Done and it works.
Good to hear. Even @ $130, that seems like a bargain compared to what most charge. I discovered that the programming procedure GM outlined in the manual is actually impossible due to a hardware limitation, which I outlined in a similar thread on this forum.
