I guess what I was really thinking was that I would not expect some random person to be able to show up with at a dealership with a vehicle on a tow truck and claim they lost all the fobs and be able to just buy a new fob and get it programmed without having to prove they owned the vehicle. It's a far stretch and probably unlikely that a thief would try it. If someone showed up with the vehicle and a working fob, I wouldn't even give it a second thought if they were getting another one.Ummm.... As far as I know anyone can purchase an Intelligent Access fob and since it is not a physical key that needs to be cut there is no paperwork involved. (I'll check on that) Of course if you have some fobs of the correct type laying around they may be used. The fobs need only be programmed to the vehicle by someone with access to the necessary software and scan tool.
