    Can't he just get a new key from the dealership? They can usually just run the VIN and get one to you

    Re: 02 wrx turbo issue

    It sounds like a valet key issue. I'd pay the dealership to cut a new regular key for the car. It'll probably be like $40 plus for it but it beats having no turbo. Valet keys are cut slightly differently than a regular key. The ignition and doors on the car are made to accept either key. The ignition will shut down some features if the valet key is recognized. The trunk lock is made to only recognize the regular key for the car. This is for the safety of your belongings in the trunk.

    Re: 02 wrx turbo issue

    could be a boost leak too, the smallest crack in a cupler or anything will cause it not to boost

    Well, because the dealership said it's the key and the key he's using doesn't open the trunk, his best bet would be to try a new, regular key. This is most likely the issue.

    $100 is a little high for a key, most are around $40 to $60. Still, if he wants to get that turbo to spool, it's worth the $100. I would tell the guy that owns the lot that you're getting a lawyer because he didn't give you the regular key with the car. See if your buddy can get the dealership to pay for the key. Have him say his dad's a lawyer or something. That usually scares the **** out of people and he'll probably get the money for the key. It's worth a try.

    Actually a 100 is not that far off for keys of today's cars.

    The valet key opens the doors and turns the Ignition to run. It will not open the trunk being it is a valet key.

    You know what? I was thinking of dealer cost for the keys with no labor. I used to work at a dealership and that's what the key cost the dealership to cut if we lost a key. I've never had to pay retail for a key because either my father or I have worked for a dealership.

    EDIT: GM dealership so there's no way I can get a key for a Subaru, nor any car for that matter, I do not work at a dealership anymore and I do not take advantage of my father's job.
