You can not cut a regular key from a valet key. Well you can, but then you'll have two valet keys. The pattern on the valet key is just slightly different. This is why the valet key will only work in the door and the ignition.
He, OR any good automotive locksmith doesn't need the four digit key code to cut a key, it can be done by visually reading the original key, but I don't know if a regular key can be cut from reading a valet key. Quite possibly, ask Mark.
Just reading the information he has on those two sites should give you a good insight about NB keys and remotes.
I am going to get the keyless entry key cut at a dealership, I wont be using the valet key to cut the keyless entry key . Thats not what I was implying. What I was asking is if I program the remote will I still have to cut the key attached to it? Will the keyless entry key that the dealership give work for everything?
The only NBs with trunks are the Verts, all others, have hatches.
The Valet Key is specifically designed to NOT operate the glove box lock. The OMs I checked don't specify whether it operates the hatch or not. Simply states it WILL NOT operate the lock in the glove box.
Getting a flip key with remote will cost you less than getting the old separate remote. A 99 should have the key code on the door cylinder or they can try to copy your key(the valet key has a slightly different blank that won't fit in the glove box but they are cut the same) The Valet key uses a NAA blank and the regular key is HAA, tne NAA is slightly wider.
