Key confusion again?!
I have a 1995 widebodied V6 with only one key. A red CODE key thay operates an immobilier. No Alarm system no alarm code cards or other keys at all.
My Toad C4 does the Cat 1 stuff, Alarm, remote central locking etc.
The battery in my car has been out to charge a couple of times. been disconnected for various lengths of time to work on the wiper judder causing motor. No problems at all. I even have a car that will occasionally blow the services fuse in the fuse board (the CODE one) when I close the sunroof! After replacing it, no problems. However there are horror stories of huge bills, new ECUs and all that stuff both here and on Alfa Owner.
Oh yeah, my friendly local mechanic says that he can easily make me up a new key without any original codes by copying the code on the existing keys chip. Says it also works for just about all in-key chip immobilier systems like Ford keys and Nissans NATS systems
I do not get it!
Have I just been lucky, or is it all hype?!
