Locked keys in toad turned out good

I have two jeep key rings with fobs.
When leaving Florida 1st set keeps steering unlocked.
2nd set used to lock and unlock doors.
1st set gets removed for overnights, to prevent car theft.

Well both sets got locked in car still attached to MH. drove into a Jeep dealership and got a key from vin number made without the chip only 12 bucks.

the new key will unlock doors and steering, but cars only starts and runs 2 seconds then tells you key not right.

So this new 3rd key will become my new steering unlock key only. No way this will help a car thief.

I did get a funny look from the parts guy when I told him my keys are locked inside the car but I brought the car in to give him the vin number and to test the new key.

The look you got was nothing compared to the look you would have got if you only had the VIN, and wanted a key cut ; without having the registration; dealers are told not to cut keys without proof of ownership.

I did that back in 2005 with our Honda Odyssey. They used what they called a "practice key" With it in place it unlocks the steering column and just runs the starter motor when turned. Will never allow the engine to start. It cost me $12 as I remember.

No, valet key allows the vehicle to drive but does not open the trunk or glovebox.
