I had to get a new key for my 2015. We need 3 sets. I bought it at the dealer and they cut the key from the VIN. The key does not need to be special ordered, they just grabbed one from a box full on the shelf. There is then a simple procedure to program the key to the car that you can do your self, it does NOT need to be done by the dealer. I do not know if the 2014 Trax is the same. But our old 2013 Malibu was the same.
To program the new fob if you have a working key.
Start the car with the old working key.
let run for about 5-10 seconds.
Shut off car and withing 15 seconds use the new key to restart the car.
Let it run for 5-10 seconds.
Shut off and your new fob will have been programed by the car.
If you lost or broke all of your keys then you will need to have the dealer reprogram for you.
