You can program new keys to your PCM with Forscan, but you will need the extended license (free).

Do you have any of the original keys from before when the lock cylinder was replaced the first time? If yes, AND they are still programmed in the car, then there's a way to use an existing chip-key head to trigger the PATS system and a different cheapo non-chip key to turn the cylinder.
