Take the lock to a locksmith, or take the VIN to the dealer and have him/her make you a key. Neither method is cheap, of course.

You will have to go to the dealership that made the car. If it is an old car they should still beable to get an original key for you. I suggest you make a copy of extra keys off the original.

Most dealers can make you a copy with the VIN number. They may also want to see your papers for the car..

Or for at least on older car without a computer chip, you could get:

*a key file (a tapered file) which you can find at just about any hardware store, a blank *a few blank keys

*a black sharpie

Use the sharpie to fully color in the key blade to black on both sides, insert the key to the lock, then firmly, but not hard, turn the key both ways a couple of times, take it out and file away the spots that don't have black on them anymore. Repeat all of this several times and you should eventually come out with a key that would work.

If you file it too much just get another blank key and start again, it'll take several tries to get the hang of it, but it shouldn't cost as much as having a dealer do it, especially since you can get all the supplies for litterally pennies on the dollar each.
