QUOTE (i want 2 way @ Jul 29 2008, 01:56 PM)
best way to get a key made is take out your boot lock and take to a lock smith cost me $14
is it a cheap imob?
if yes get a new one hundred bucks fitted ( remember some one now has your keys and imob )
if you want the fix the old one i have neva heard of a remote losing its frequency , i would take it into a shop and get em to test it
did u put the right batt in it ?
what car is it?? find out if its transponder key type, and if so see if transponder & key have to match the ecu? if not just buy a lock set (ignition, 2 doors and boot lock), and if required grab the transponder with the locks, its a black plastic surround that clips around igniotion barrel.......
i.e the very latest toyota key/transponder system thats "flawless" and fitted to latest supercharged aurion TRD's, corolla/camry sportivo's etc............can be bypassed by anyone who has a key and transponder ......simply unplug the transponder from main wiring harness of car , plug in your "replacement transponder to the 4 pin plug....start car with the "replacement"key
meaning........if a thief wants your new toyota etc...(supposed to be secure) the he simply has to use a key etc from another one.......( i worked this out while playing a trick on my mrs hehehe) holdens however need the body control module to match the transponder....(only 1 minute longer to swap)...
in the long run....get a new lock set from ebay/wreckers etc or swap with a mate if u think key finder may know your address..........
