Re: Switch blade key

Take your OEM key and split the black plastic top apart. The chip is inside.

Re: Switch blade key

I don't see how I can split it apart. I think if I can find the exact spot of the chip I can cut it out maybe?...I can add pics of the keys tomorrow if need be.

The black portion is just two half press together. There's a seam along the edge.

Really? My OEM key is a rubberized plastic. Looks vacuum molded over the metal shank. I doubt it's coming apart. The OEM fob, sure. The key, no. It looks pretty permanent to me.

But hey, I've been wrong before.

Mine is hard plastic, I can see the seam along the edge where the two halves would come together.
Start to pry where the arrow is with a small knife or screwdriver.

Re: Switch blade key

I know mine must have the chip inside the dash or something. I am an XE, but i went to lowes and just got a regular key, and had them cut it to shape and it unlocks my truck, starts it and everything. It may just be for the better versions of the truck.

Your XE doesn't have a chip period.

Re: Switch blade key

You can get a cheap key off ebay and have it cut/programmed, then pull that chip out so you don't ruin a OEM key. Or search around here for people who have zip tied a OEM key under the dash so the computer reads that chip, allowing you to use a non-chipped key.
