Re: 2011 punto evo automatic

hi, the car is basically still a Grande Punto, with a few additions,
use the GP guides for most info,
look out for meets in your area too, as the weather warms-up,

you are most welcome,

where are you based?,
I'm trying to get a database of recommended autolocksmiths, as FIATS prices are beyond cheeky,

cost SHOULD be around£100 - NOT £300

cheapest way to a 2nd working key..,

go on ebay, buy a key of the same style to yours -(£15)

shop around FIAT dealers for the CODE necessary to add a key into cars ECU
( £15 to £35)
it'll be a sheet of A4 paper..so whoever is cheapest in the UK..!!


take it along with the car to a decent autolocksmith,

they'll take the key apart, change the chip, and remove the blade

use a CNC machine to SCAN the working key, then cut a copy which then gets fitted to the "ebay KEY",

then they'll plug a box into the cars OBD port, and code in BOTH of the keys,

this could take around an hour , and cost @£100

hope that helps,

look in the forums, Clubs and Events listings,
Cymru Italia are a friendly bunch, and somebody fairly local may be able to recommend a place for the key coding,
Charlie

Re: 2011 punto evo automatic

Just a quick update
I had crazy prices from main dealers and some auto locksmiths for a spaire key but I ended up getting a plain one with chip that opens the car,
starts the car and opens the fuel lock for the MASSIVE price of wait for it ----------£35.00 don't think many will beat that,

You assume right
What do you want for £35.00 lol
I called into a local Market/boot sale and a mobile key cutter did it there and then.
