Quest for the Key

Well, after 4 days of looking for my keys to the van, I finally gave up.

I had the van towed to the dealership this afternoon, and they cut me a new key based on the VIN. Keys for Caravans are EXPENSIVE because they have to have a chip in them and the chip has to be programmed to the specific car it's mated to.

Cost of towing a car that's locked in Park - $105
Cost of cutting a new key, complete with built-in remote for doors and alarm - $219
