So if you program another one that leaves just one slot left. If for some reason the ebay one doesn't take, you'll be down to your last slot, and after that you have to replace the ecu.

The programming at the dealership is the most expensive part of the process and from what I recall, you're only saving about $50 going ebay vs dealership. I didn't seem worth the $50 gamble to me back then.

Or does it have to be "unlocked"? I came across an article that said it needed to be an unlocked fob to work, but that was from a locksmith website with an interest in selling "unlocked" fobs...

hope you get the answer for the reprogram of the used key fob.
I also ask some of the local locksmith, some said they only do virgin key fob, some just say we can do it no problem
