Lost all of my FOB keys, what to do now?

I lost both of my FOB keys to my 2017 Volt, what to do to get a replacement? Can't drive my car. I think I dropped my last FOB key when I jogged for miles. Tried looking for it by retracing my path, couldn't find it, there were too many people, so someone could have picked it up.

Will I have to tow the car to the dealer for reprogramming for a replacement or shall I just bring my documents and they can do the reprogramming on the key? I can open the car with an app but no option to start it. Only precondition, lock and unlock, alarm... No remote start.

Where did you lose the first keyfob?
HUH? If he knew that it wouldn't be lost.
Go to page 34 of your owner's manual to see the 30 minute procedure for pairing a new fob to your car. Buy a fob and bring it home and do that.

There was a serial number with keys when sold. Check your glove box and purchase docs. This is used for ordering the metal key to unlock the door if the battery is dead.
Not sure about the Gen 2 but with Gen 1 you need a keyfob to pair another. So that would not help him if he does not have one at all.
