1. Take a book and chill.
2. Transfer a movie to your phone and watch that.
3. Find a WiFi hotspot and browse youtube.
4. Walk. Find a place you would like to visit about 4-5km from the dealer and walk there.
5. Arrange to meet a friend and go watch a movie. Ask them to pick you up.

:-) Asking a friend with a car to meet me is what I was leaning towards - which means I'll need a weekend appointment which means I might need to wait an extra few weeks to get a 3 hour slot (yes, my jaw still drops at that) in the service bay. Luckily I'm not in any real hurry (my new mantra - do not lose your keys....)

Edit: sorry I see now that even the dumb key has a chip in it .


Hang on what am I missing. You get one non remote key as a spare along with your master remote car key. Given the key without the remote is just a strip of steel fashioned into a particular shape then can't you just have a duplicate of that key cut as your 3rd emergency key?

My other car (4wd) came with two remote keys and one non remote key to keep as a emergency backup.
