Lost Keys We have recently lost our only set of keys to a 1993 Geo Storm. We called the dealer and they have two sets...one w/ notch and one without? They put in the info of the car and those two came up. Both cost $75 each. Basically we have to buy both in order to know which one it is. We are not allowed to return one of them, should it not be the key. What in the world is a notch key and why are there two sets? Can anyone help with this matter? We're lost here.


The lock can come from many different vendors, this kind of issue is very common on all cars whom ever makes them, I would buy one set and try it, you have a 50% chance they will be correct, another thing to do is call other dealers and ... 1993 Geo Storm
