I need to get a spare key!

I have a V reg 99 Brava but I only have 1 blue key. (the only key I have)

I have been to the high street key cutter and he says that he can cut me a key but he can't program it and all it will do is open the door nothing else, as the Keys from '99 onwards have to be done by Fiat which will cost around £100.

Is this true? Is there any way to get a key copied without having the RED key? How can I get a new RED key?

Please help. I thought I had lost my keys yesterday and that would have been that. So I need to get a spare key cut, if possible.

Thats where I went mate, they put the key into a machine and said they couldn't make a key as it has something to do with the code on the key on models from '99 onward.

Thanks anyway.

Re: I need to get a spare key!

Is there a circle and triangle symbol on the key and number 2 written on it. If it is then it is 2nd type of immobiliser. Someone on the forum said these keys have laser encrypted code in it which cant be copied. If you just have triangle and circle and no number, then it can be cloned easily.

There is the circle and triangle symbol, then on the other side of the key it has a code on it- A602

Don't know what this means.

Re: I need to get a spare key!

There are places that can reset your imobilizer and reprog it and supply 3 new keys. You need to send them your ecu and code block, along with a key that will open/turn the ignition. If you have lost the key you would have to send your boot lock (as long as this is opened with the same key as used in the ignition.)

Re: I need to get a spare key!

I got a key cloned at a fiat main dealers. I would have thought the key would be cut from the particular car manufactures blank in question. I also hope people that are cloning keys are seeing proof of ownership before hand...

Re: I need to get a spare key!

Early keys are programmed by manufacturer and cannot be re-programmed, but can be copied easily. Later 1999+ I think use a system similar to other car manufacturers, ie you need to get a security code from dealers for a small fee 20?.. Then you need to buy a key blank about 12, then you need someone to programme it, about 40. Take it to the dealer and save the hassle.

Re: I need to get a spare key!

i should think you can get an auto locksmith to programme you a key normall price is around 60 where r u in the country and yep you should get a spare asap]I have a V reg 99 Brava but I only have 1 blue key. (the only key I have)

I have been to the high street key cutter and he says that he can cut me a key but he can't program it and all it will do is open the door nothing else, as the Keys from '99 onwards have to be done by Fiat which will cost around 100.

Is this true? Is there any way to get a key copied without having the RED key? How can I get a new RED key?

Please help. I thought I had lost my keys yesterday and that would have been that. So I need to get a spare key cut, if possible.[/QUOTE]
