Panda key booster!!!

Hi all, I have an option to buy a fiat Panda.
The seller says it needs a key booster.
What is it? Where do I find it?
Is it a cheap fix?
Apparently the car is currently being used
Regards Red

The only
' half logical'..

Thing I can think of is that the aerial is struggling to read the key chip..

So the immobiliser gets in the way.

Again..ask her the context.

Its a weird phrase..

So interpretation could be the key.

Re: Panda key booster!!!

She probably meant the immobiliser ring antenna. It is plastic ring that fits around the ignition switch. Used parts cost about 20. New - probably about double. They do fail over time and are easy enough to fit with some fiddling about to remove plastic covers around the steering column.
