you need to pay the dealer to program the key for you.
The idea is, if you lost your keys, and your car was stolen. The theif would only have one good key. The car can only be reprogrammed by the dealer, and the theif would have to prove to the dealer that they are the actual owner. And they won't be able to do that beause it was stolen.
Now, if you're the owner, you should have 3 keys (2 master and 1 valet). If you lost one of the keys, you still have 2 keys, and thus it is assumed (by the car) that you are the propper owner, and thus you don't need to have the dealer program it.
Hope that wasn't too convoluted.
