2004 Mustang replacement key

I have a 4.6L 2004 Mustang, and I recently lost the only set of keys I had to the car in a recent snow storm. I've called several local Ford dealers, and one even said they couldn't replace a key on an 2004 (which I think is bull.) Anyway, I've read through plenty of places online, but most people at least had one key when they needed a replacement. My question is what do I need to get a new key? I'm a poor college kid so I don't have a lot of money to spare, but I also don't want to do anything that'll risk messing up my ignition or anything like that. Is there a way to get an uncut key and have someone program it without it being at the dealer? I'm desperate, so anything helps. Thanks for any answers.

Call some local mobile locksmith services and explain your situation. May cost $2-300 but they can get you up and going. If you have a AAA membership you may be eligible for a little bit of the cost to be reimbursed.

Dealer would probably want to install a new ignition lock cylinder and sell/program new keys, and going by what I've seen others in your situation recently on here and elsewhere I have heard of people being quoted anywhere from $400-800 at the stealership.
