New key fob required

Recommended Posts

Hi folks.

Just wondering where's the best (but reasonably priced) place to get a spare key and fob/transmitter as the car came with only one. Or how do I go about sourcing one!

I'm in North Yorkshire (just north of Ripon)

 

Cheers

Shello.

Hi Neil,

 

I have looked around and have found several via google:

 

Leeds Car Key Centre-- LS9 6NN. 0113 225 008901 ---   This looks very good and can do something while you wait.

 

Another one is Lockies auto locksmiths --  speak to Chris on 07768 911249.

 

And there is one in York: Auto Locksmiths York  : 07766 986939

 

All appear suited to your requirements

 

Regards,

 

Peter.

If you are having troubles with your fobs not working properly or you have to continually press a button to get it to work, contact Neil Hawsworth at fingaz_fobz@yahoo.co.uk. Tell him Hugh from Belfast sent you. (couple of quid off).

I got my spare from ebay for £2.50 (auction). I put a new battery in it and had it matched to the car by my local auto key person. Reprogramming it is a fascinating process involving specialist kit, tokens and lots of key strokes. The security seems excellent in that the identity of the locksmith owning the specialist kit and the date and time that the fob was reprogrammed are all recorded. Mine is the squarish 3 button type.
