Broken Red Key - Novice advice please?
This is actually a post on behalf of my neighbor, who has a mint late GTV V6. It has two black keys, and one red key which (did) have a button for the remote central locking. The rubber cap for the button is missing, as are the micro-switches - they've just peeled away from the PCB within.
What we'd like to ask, is how can we sort this? I have a 54 plate 156, so I'm not familiar with these red keys, but i'm guessing they are of some importance?
My first thought is obtaining either A) a blank key, or B) a second hand key. Then transfer the blade and transponder from the old broken key, into the new key, then code the key to the car for the remote central locking. Is that even possible?
Any advice appreciated!
