    Hi Letitiota,

    It looks like the part can range from $38 - $60. I have never replaced one, not sure how much labor would be charged to replace it.

    One thing to keep in mind, is that it would need to be re-keyed to match your current key's or you will have a different key to lock the doors and start the blazer. I am sure there are others here who have done it.

    I am trying to find info on transponder keys.How they work, what equipment to buy to service them. Basically someone looses their transponder keys to their car, what do I need to help them.I can't afford the equipment for the tools, but I can learn about them so when I get the tools I can go to work on them.
