I've lost my keys and although they are insured i have to get a quote to replace the key, my key is an electronic fob key and i was unsure of how they will sort out the problem, are the keys coded?? do they just recode them if they are?? thanks in advance for any help x

Try your local auto locksmith. Mine quoted £100 against the main stealer's price of £210. The snag is that only the main stealer will have access to the details of your car and key. Best of luck.

My car was only supplied with one key .... but I noticed a "key code" .. about 12 digits long on a tag in the drivers book wallet. Would I still need a main dealer to get a second key cut? Or can I just get a blank off fleabay for a few quid and have the fob bit programmed and key cut anywhere?

I was told that the main dealer has to program a blank key, or some such nonsense...no doubt others will have more info about this but it's a shame you only got one key with the vehicle. You definitely need to get another one.

the key has an imobliser chip in them this needs to bo coded to the car this is where £90-100 of this cost of a new key is, the central locking can be programed yourself tho
you can get a blank cut but but you wil have to go to the dealer to get it programed

Hmmm.. Ive just got an online quote from one of these mobile locksmiths of £115 to supply a second key. Ive emailed the chap back just to confirm EXACTLY what functionality the new key will have. The company is based in New Mills and seems to cover the Greater Manchester area !

hello there! i'm so sorry that you lost your keys too! i lost mine recently and what i can advice you is the same thing i did. well, after hearing from the dealer , that asked me for 300£ to get a replacement key, i did some research online to look for a local locksmith that was able to help me with a less price. so these guyscame to me the same day to do the work. the car key specialist that came was really professional and fast, he was able to do everything in half an hour!. i absolutely saved time and money with them!.. just give it a try and see if they can help you.
