96 Spider

need a spare key for 916 Spider in Canada

Hello. I have only one red key and no other keys for my 1996 916 Spider which I bought in Japan and later brought to Canada. I do have the code card with electronic and mechanical codes also. However, as these cars were never originally sold in North America, the local locksmiths say they cannot help me. A UK key dealer says he can sell me a key, but that a local locksmith needs to code it here. The local locksmiths have no software for this car. We have no Alfa dealers, and the Fiat 500 dealers say they cannot help. Other than mailing my only key to the UK, does anyone have a suggestion? Thanks.

I'm surprised that the the local Locksmiths and the FIAT Dealer can't help you.

On an early 916 Car all you need is one working key and the local Key Cutter can do the whole lot, cut and code, in about five minutes. In fact they often use FIAT keys so I'm even more surprised that the Dealer can't do it.

There is nothing special about these keys, I believe they use a Phillips chip which is widely used.

If you have RCL button on the key that may be more of a problem but just the Key to use mechanically and to operate the CODE system should be doable by the key guy in your local Mall, I would have thought.

Maybe the Dealers/Locksmiths over there only deal with very new stuff ?

Hope you can find a solution.

Have you seen the Lincolnshire Lounge ? Don't stay off the radar, come on in and have a look !
