Hi all,
I'm a newbie (this is my first post). I just bought an 07 with 92K miles in a the cargo format. I'm excited. Can anyone point me in the right direction regarding an extra set of keys? I know there is an RF relationship between the keys and the van. Anyway, thanks in advance!!

For the 2007 and newer, i believe the dealer is pretty much the only way to go...

good luck

Anticipated questions and answers below

Thanks goes to TwistyRoad - these instructions require two working keys:

Don't have two keys?

You'll need to find someone with StarMOBILE or WiTECH (all Dodge dealerships use one or both of these tools in the service area):

My dealership/locksmith/neighbor who is so god like,
he builds winning race cars
out of beer cans and rubber bands;
he has the tools, but he can't find the part
numbers for keys.

What are the part numbers for the keys?

Your dealership might be different than the Dodge dealer that I got my keys from, however, they required to see my title in order to get additional keys (I got 2). They ordered 2 keys from Mercedes (Texas distributor) at $55 each - based on the VIN # of the Sprinter. Then charged $125 to do the RFID association with the on board computers (as many keys as you like - the charge is the same). The keys took around a week to get to the Dodge dealer.

NOTE: Not all Dodge dealers work on Sprinters to program them to match your Sprinter, but most can probably order the keys.

The $125 'programming' charge is why I got 2 keys done at the same time.

Without the title, they would not order the keys for me.

Whether a Dodge dealer works on Sprinters or not, the scan tool (WiTECH) works with all 2007-2009 Sprinters and DealerCONNECT (the dealership computer system) has all the service info. They can call the Sprinter support staff and get guidance for Sprinter repairs.... they might get some push back and some ribbing, but Chrysler won't abandon a dealership if the dealership mgmt is behind the effort.

Most of the onus is upon the dealership to do the right thing and nag the bureaucracy to get any Chrysler vehicle going again. Dealership employees might have to escalate, might have to call another Dodge dealership, might have to go the extra mile (or 10) to do the right thing - yeah, they are the weak link - but it's not impossible. They have the tools and the connections to get the job done.

The consumer may have to press hard; but the dealership does have the right tools and access to the info.... it comes down to the guts and the determination/resolve to do the right thing.
