I can reprogram used keys for around 150-180 :)
Would you mind explaining a little bit more about how you go about this process, what the prerequisites are etc?

I'm looking at potentially acquiring a car which only has 1 key. Everyone else on this thread says it can't be done unless you go to a dealer?

Thanks,

Richard

I can't tell you the exact process as it's taken me lots of work to crack it but see below.

I take the key reader and extract the required codes for the car

I take any 2 keys and add them to the reader

I unlock the keys

I then program the keys with the required codes to work with the car.

Ship the keys and the reader back to you :)

Forgive me but "key reader" is that a device I have to buy or an ECU in the car?

And would I have to send both keys together? I.e. be without acces to the car for a bit?

Thanks,

I think it's the slot you put the key in when you get in the car. But if we send you that then we can't use our car till you send it back?
