As previously stated I got my cadenza used and the dealer I bought from only had one of the key fobs, so should I buy it on eBay or at the dealer? Thoughts?

check with dealer on how much he will charge you for programming if you bring your own in from ebay. some times cheaper from dealer by the time you pay for programming. You can't do that yourself.
for my Saturn sky I know someone with a programmer so that was better on ebay.

I had the same situation with a Honda. Some locksmiths have the capability to program keys, you just have to call around. I think I found mine on Yelp. As I remember, I bought a new uncut key on eBay, then took it to the locksmith to get cut and programmed. It was a little cheaper doing it that way versus ordering the key from the locksmith.

We can most likely order one of these for you from our supplier at a fraction of the cost of the dealership.

BEWARE from buying from eBay sellers in Korea. The remote WILL NOT work on your US Spec Cadenza. (Been there done that)

If interested in getting a new remote with blank key for under $150, please send us an email to [email protected]

Well, maybe westtrexk has been waiting all this time for someone to suggest a place to use. 😄
Anyway, it might help someone else who finds this thread...

I bought one from Amazon and it was useless .The dealer or some after market dealer who knows about electronic keys needs to program it must program it
