As an automotive locksmith, I can confirm that yes, automotive specialists can make you a new key. Often at a much lower price than going back to the dealer and usually on the same day where the dealership can take weeks.There are several stages. We have tools to decode the lock from which we will cut the key. We have software to check that cut is correct. We carry many transponders and fobs and key blanks . Once we have made the key, we then have to plug in to your on board computer to program in the new transponder key.
