Wife's car was broken into and keys to my car and lockbox taken along with some valuables and camera. The thieves know what i possibly look like, so I can't just change the code to the remote (the car can be accessed with the key albeit the alarm goes on really quickly and off with just a turn of the same key in the ignition). What can i do other than pay the dealer to change all locks (ignition,door,lockbox)and get new keys? Any ideas???

I would see if your insurance company will cover the replacement of the locks. If not, then don't worry about it - but do make sure you keep your policy paid!

The lockbox key is simple to replace. The dealership will give you another lock and key set for $40. You can remove the old and install the new one yourself.

I'd find out if the dealership can deactivate all other keys except the one/ones that you are using.
