No, I think he is talking about a key with immobiliser chip. Different thing altogether. However, I was under the impression that, without the master key, the dealer should still be able to obtain the (master)*ID key code (password) using the kia diagnostic equipment and reprogramme a new key. (but I may be wrong - diesel models don't have the ID key system).
*NB Kia refer to what you (I think) call the 'master' as the ID Key. They refer to the keys that you use everyday as the 'master'. Confusing ain't it!
Instructions are on kiatechinfo.com
"When the customers lost the ID key, new master keys can be registered by using Hi-scan only. ID key can not be corrected and reproduced."
