Im in search of a locksmith that can cut car keys (in this case a Volvo key) I bought my car about 2 months ago with only one key and thats it.

I purchases 3 blank Volvo keys that need to be cut.

Im in Morris county New Jersey.

Locksmith can't
Go to a Volvo dealer
They will have to program them anyway, they just won't work after being cut

98 ok for locksmith, 99 on up go to dealer because key must be programmed if you use it to start the car

Sorry I didn't specify.

I have a '98 V70. And I will be using the keys to start the car.

Also, any idea on how much it would cost to have a remote programed to the car??

Any decent locksmith should be able to cut a '98 key very reasonably.
No programming will be needed - It's a "dumb" key.

Getting a remote programmed into your car is a different story.
Used 9166200's can be found on the cheap - That part is easy.
What it will cost for the shop time depends entirely on the dealer.

If you do buy used remote, be wary of broken cases at the key ring corner.
But fresh cases abound in the aftermarket at about 25 bucks.
