i am pretty sure you can get a copy made.... but its expensive.

it means that only that key will start your car. theres a chip inside the key. the gray sentry key is thicker than the regular black key. my focus has something similar and i know if i want a copy of my key, it is something like $50 to get a copy. my R/T surprisingly did not have the sentry key, but its a VERY good security feature of your M. i think, correct me if im wrong, that the chip inside the key sends a signal to another sensor in the ignition allowing it to start the car. i could be wrong, i know more about the ford security key than the chrysler sentry key

Its not that expensive to get a copy made. My original one burned up in the fire at work, so instead of paying $$$ at the dealer for a new one, I got one from eBay, and had it cut at a locksmith and programmed at the dealer. They said they've never had an aftermarket key "take" to a vehicle before but mine worked just fine. I think they wanted like $80 just for the key itself. I paid $8 for the key on eBay, 99cents to get it cut, and like ~$50 to have it programmed.. Works fine.

If you get a key cut like Mike did just make sure you don't try to start the car before you get it programmed at the deale or you'll be spending alot more than $50!! BTW, if you have 2 keys for your car you can program more without a trip to the dealer.

I found out the hard way that my car had sentry keys way back when. I had just a regular copy made and when I tried to use it, the car would start and then shut down like a second or two later. But, I still kept it since a regular key can still open the doors and trunk. It's not completely worthless to have a regular old dummy key copy.

Sentry Keys have to be done by the dealer. It's the Keyless entry fobs that can be done yourself.

That is incorrect. Refer to the customer program procedure outlined in the FSM. If you have 2 keys that are programmed, you can program additional ones without use of the DRBIII. It involves inserting one key to enter programming mode, inserting the other key, and then finally inserting a new and unprogrammed key to be programmed.

No, If you have 2 keys, it can be done at home!

Two programmed sentry key transponders are
included with the Sentry Key Immobilizer System
(SKIS) when it is shipped from the factory. The Sentry
Key Immobilizer Module (SKIM) can be programmed
to recognize up to six additional
transponders, for a total of eight Sentry Keys. The
following “Customer Learn” programming procedure
for the programming of additional transponders
requires access to at least two of the valid Sentry
Keys. If two valid Sentry Keys are not available, Sentry
Key programming will require the use of a
DRBIIIt scan tool and the proper Body Diagnostic
Procedures Manual.

CUSTOMER LEARN
(1) Obtain the additional Sentry Key transponder
blank(s) that are to be programmed for the vehicle. Cut
the additional Sentry Key transponder blanks to match
the ignition lock cylinder mechanical key codes.
(2) Insert one of the two valid Sentry Key transponders
into the ignition switch and turn the ignition
switch to the ON position.
(3) After the ignition switch has been in the ON
position for about three seconds, but no more than
fifteen seconds, cycle the ignition switch back to the
OFF position. Replace the first valid Sentry Key in
the ignition lock cylinder with the second valid Sentry
Key and turn the ignition switch back to the ON
position. Both operations must be performed within
15 seconds.
(4) About ten seconds after the completion of Step
3, the VTSS indicator LED will start to flash and a
single audible chime tone will sound to indicate that
the system has entered the “Customer Learn” programming
mode.
(5) Within about fifty seconds of entering the “Customer
Learn” programming mode, turn the ignition
switch to the OFF position, replace the valid Sentry
Key with a blank Sentry Key transponder, and turn
the ignition switch back to the ON position.
(6) About ten seconds after the completion of Step
5, a single audible chime tone will sound and the
VTSS indicator LED will stop flashing and stay on
solid for about three seconds to indicate that the
blank Sentry Key transponder has been successfully
programmed. The SKIS will immediately return to
normal system operation following exit from the
“Customer Learn” programming mode.
(7) Go back to Step 2 and repeat this process for
each additional Sentry Key transponder blank to be
programmed.

WOW, that's just NEAT!!! I didn't know our cars could program the keys!

What kind of car is that pentastar key from anyways? Mine says "CHRYSLER" across it, no pentastar logo.

Basically if it's a thick key, it's a sentry key.
