If you can get a key cut.. its @45/50

As the code is stored in the ECU..

ITS a simple plug in for the key cutter

Re: Lost my sons only key

Ask various FIAT dealers.. there isnt a fixed price.. for the cost of a basic key


and then @ponsaloti on here

I bought my Grande with no service key.. just the remote

Service key was 45 as around 10 mins work

@R402faa sorry my comment doesn't help as such, but when you get a new key take a picture of the blade and upload it to the cloud or a secure place. Theres company's that will cut you a new key from the picture for around 15. Then you only have to get it programmed, hope this helps

My local Auto Locksmith would do it for about 120 quid.

Just get a spare.
Unless the vehicle is an old smoker, I dont understand anyone not having a spare. It's asking for trouble.
Sooner or latter it will bite you in the arse.

I 100% agree having a spare key is a must, but these things happen and people do lose spare keys also. taking a picture of the blade and storing it securely can save you a lot of money if you don't have the keycode.

When I brought my partner the GP it only had 1 key and this method was the cheapest solution. Brought just a basic key and they cut it to picture for 15, auto locksmith programmed it for 20.

Hi Jamie.

Is the car an expensive low mile model..or a tired banger..

If its a tired banger Its barely worth the effort unfortunately..

I had this with a Honda bike..

The key turned up 18 months later.. after I had removed a lock.. and let a locksmith cut a new key to it

Bike wasnt worth any more than a tired old grande

250+ tax is more than that..

Back in 1997 if you lost your puntos red key it was 750.. and the whole new car was probably 6,000

Thats why people claim on their house insurance for lost keys
