You posted this elsewhere here and were given suggestions and at least one dealer link. Did you see that?

thank you
for me the simplest of Europe was send an email to GM but I do not think they will worry too much about me and my keys plsieurs has thousands of kilometers!
home in Europe on cars does not work like that, we must change the locks and keys
may be in for a america american it is easy to go to the dealer to order a set of key push cars here but nobody wants americaines s deal to make this service
Most of my pieces I ordered on ebay usa and rockautos is for Europe the most "successful" except for the keys is not possible, not available on ebay and at rockautos only blank keys
I thank you for your appreciation I will send a mail to GM praying god he answer me

Maybe you can enlist someone who speaks good English. Make a phone call and talk to someone at the dealer. If need be, you can FAX the proof of ownership to them, and maybe that will work. Just an idea.

Or, remove the locks and have a locksmith make you keys. You just need the door/trunk keys, correct?

The problem is, he is in France and doesn't speak very good English.

Do you mean the factory GM remote, or is it an aftermarket remote? You can only unlock the doors, or can start the car with the remote also?

I've emailed my local GM dealer and asked for suggestions on how you might best be able to get new keys.

It would be nice to hear a little background on how your Riv came to be in France. It seems a bit odd that you'd have a remote that works, but no keys?

Hello friends
this subject can seem stupid but for French is not easy
my remote works and electric trunk also works
unfortunately it is not prudent to have no key
Here in France we have no dealer
we only independent importers who do not provide parts
models of classic and current as chrysler 300c cadillac seville buick ParkAvenue we can find parts
against by the riviera is a model to us all too rare in France there are only 3 in our
I think the main rooms on ebay or rock autos against by the more precise parts like guns lock it is not possible
I sent emails to dealers in usa but nobody gives an answer for europe
I bought the car without the keys of doors, without rims, I have restored the car brakes, automatic transmission, air conditioning compressor,
the car is almost finished, I ride with every day,
I still paint, keys, and audio installation cd
  after that it will be finished I think buying a second riviera
I thank you for reading my posts

Comment ça va?

Je suppose que vous utilisez un logiciel de traduction et il est de convertir nos réponses dans les hamburgers espagnoles. J'utilise Google Translate pour la vitesse, mais la vérification de la traduction manuellement pour le rendre moins mauvais (ne peut pas le rendre bon, hélas). J'espère que cette note vous aide beaucoup.

Vous devriez être en mesure d'obtenir une clef pour votre Buick, à partir d'un concessionnaire Opel Chevrolet ou Cadillac ou en France. Vous devrez trouver un, ils ne se cachent pas de vous, personne amusé. Vous devriez vous renseigner à un tel concessionnaire automobile. Cependant, si cela ne fonctionne pas, qu'est-ce que vous pourriez faire ... communiquer avec un concessionnaire Buick au Québec, Canada.

Phone: +1 (514) 342-2222
Fax: +1 (514) 419-5636
Email: general@gravelauto.com

Vous devez leur dire le NIV de la voiture, il est gravé sur une plaque de métal sur le tableau de bord à l'endroit typique, et aussi sur décalque du fabricant apposée sur la porte du conducteur. Vous avez également à leur prouver que vous êtes le propriétaire légitime de la voiture, que vous devriez être en mesure de le faire en leur envoyant des copies de vos documents de propriété par fax. Attendez-vous à dépenser USD$30 à 60 pour les clefs.

Meilleurs

Albert, I assume you just referred him to a French-speaking dealer in Montreal... EXCELLENT idea, we should have thought of that sooner!

I did email my local dealer last night and they were going to investigate what they could do for you, but did not hear any update today.

heh heh

if it's such a great idea maybe you could give me a vote (just kidding)

actually i told him:

1) the translation software he's using is turning his French into Spanish Hamburger and I use Google Translate for speed then make some corrections -- which, I told him, is not much better...
2) he ought to first simply ask an Opel, Cadillac or Chevrolet dealer in France (there are several) about a key
3) if that did not work he should telephone a Buick dealer in Quebec (there are several, I gave one example). Problem with that is that some Parisian Urban French think Quebecois is not French and won't talk to the Quebecois... that's his hangup not mine... anyway for this or the Opel dealers he'll need the VIN and he'll probably have to provide (faxed) copies of his papers proving ownership.
4) what I neglected to mention to him is that the trunk lock cylinder is GM part number 19113597 and is still available, even RockAuto shows them, it will set him back like $25 US plus shipping for a new one. Then a locksmith should be able to re-tumble his door locks to match the new trunk lock and key if he wants to remove the cylinders (it's tedious but not difficult) and a replacement key can be ground to fit at a hardware store, he can get the blanks off eBay if not available locally.
