Get them all erased and just reprogram in the current ones you have.

Very easy to do, with a Tek2, or Autel Unit, don't let anyone hood wink you and say its hard, because it isn't,
as I did in on my VE to see how to do it, and was all done in 10minutes, Erased and Programmed in 4 Keys.

I thought you need an existing key to do that?

Option 1
Buy a Complete Key online, ie: ebay
Take it to a Locksmith to get it Cut and programmed into your Car.

Option 2
If you have the Original Security Card that come with the vehicle,
You can order a replacement Key that can be cut to code,
because the Security Card has a Key Number on it, where some locksmiths will Cut it to Code which is a better option,
Because the existing Key you have will be a bit worn.
Then you need to get it programmed into your car.

EG:
I ordered a replacement Key in October time last year,
as my every day Key physically died, lost transmit range [as in one of my previous posts],
No it wasn't the battery, as I tried a new battery.
Where it happened out of the blue, and I was away on holidays in Echuca at the time, heading to Nelson Bay.
But I am a bit paranoid of being locked out of my car, so I took a spare one with me,
and gave it to my wife to hank on too.
So for the time I used that while away.
In saying that, I ordered one from a eBay seller off ebay when I got home, contacted them direct.
Provided the Key Number to them, they cut it, posted it down, Programmed the new one in, and worked first time,
With to one that failed, being the Circuit board was the cause,
I bought a secondhand VE Key of eBay, ditched the blade, and the old housing, and swapped the S/Hand transmitter over into the my existing Key shell, [threw the old circuit board out]
then erased them all, and re-programmed in all 4 Keys, the rest is history.
To day, the replacement one I bought, is still working ok,
And the Repaired one also works ok also.
;)

You just need an active Key, and you program in an additional one.

Where a key [existing] will classed as a Master Key.
That's were it get a bit tricky I found, but still worked ok.

There was one thing I did noticed to differentiate from a Master Key to Spare Key,
On my Car, the Master Key operates the Indicators and the Reverse Lights when used to Lock and Unlock the Car,
Where the Spare Key only Operates the Indicators,
and any additional Spare Keys, [my other 2 Spare Keys] only operate the Indicators when locked and unlocked.
