Key problem

Hey guys need some help my key for my elise broke as I was trying to open the car manually, bc the alarm is not working. I lost my spare. My question is I have the broken key can I get a copy made at Home Depot or am I screwed.

You should be able to have someone cut the key if you have all the parts. It might take someone that really knows keys though. I've had broke keys replaced before.

Just be sure to take it to a locksmith and not someone like Home Depot.

I believe the blank is a Toyota number. I also suggest taking it to a pro locksmith.
