Sorry for the repost, I haven't worked out how to delete old post.
It's been up for a few days, but no replies, so trying again.
Hi guys, new member hear.
I've just bought a 156 2006 model today.
It only came with a plain key, not the remote locking one.
I've been reading through some threads, but can't quite make out the info I need.
I do not have ( that I know of anyway ) the key code.
What are my options? Replacing the ecu and locks all round seem a little excessive.
Can I buy a 2nd hand key and reprogram. From what I read, I can as I have the later model????
Or can I buy a cheap replacement without going through the dealer?
If I was to get a 2nd hand key, could I reprogram it with a diagnostic tool, if so, which one?
Sure I will have many more questions, but that is my main one right now.
Oh, I'm in Perth Australia.
