Default '04 Sentra 1.8s lost key

Hello, looking for information an how to get a key for my Sentra. I had lent it to my sister and she has lost both the original with the fob and a spare i had made. the spare was just a blank without the transponder and worked fine. I did ask a local dealer and gave them the VIN of my car. they told me that they couldnt do anything for me without removing/replacing the whole ignition switch. Any thought? trying to find the cheapest way out of this, I do have some mechanical/technical experience and have no problem replacing the ignition myself if i have to. Thanks.

The dealer can get the key code from the vin #.

Thanks, I tried that and they said they couldn't pull the code. Also they would have to pull the steering column appart to get a number off the ignition. Does this sound right to you?

No. They are probably using the old method of retrieving codes from Nissan. If they do it from the ASIST computer they should be able to get it.
