Default Replacement key/Key fob?

I am a little confused in how I can procure a new key and its attendant fob. I only have the one that was with the car when I bought it at a Ford dealership. Do I need to go to a Chrysler dealer? Is the car start-able without the fob...? I am just starting what I believe is going to be a steep learning curve for this car so please have some mercy. Thanks!

I can't speak from first hand experience, but I believe you have to go to a Chrysler or Mercedes dealer, show them your VIN and they will order you one at a cost of about $100.

The dealer in Boulder CO quoted me $300 for the key and $100 to program the key! Needless to say I looked for alternatives and found this company referenced here on these forums:
Keyless Entry Remotes, Car Remote Replacements, Key Fobs, Keys, &more!
I ordered through them for $160 and received the key today. It came from a Chrysler dealer! It works like a champ and I saved a bunch of money, so I don't care about the details.

Patrick, based on your post, I assume that you may be Colorado-based? If so, we'd love to have you join our Colorado Crossfire Club (CCC) events.

We are in Lakewood. We just got our Crossfire July 5th, so I'm not familiar with the club. Tell me more!

The car is not start-able without the chip in the Fob being close to the ignition halo which is around the keyhole.
The chip is programed to the car and vice versa, it is a part of the anti-theft system.
