Re: Immobiliser Key stolen in handbag :-(

Why not visit Fiat and see what they can do. At least they will do the job properly. Then key insurance is worth a look - 15 for 1500 worth of replacement key costs isn't a bad deal IMHO.

Re: Immobiliser Key stolen in handbag :-(

Is that just an insurance policy where a premium of 15 provides cover for up to 1500 to replace keys, locks, immo, etc.? (i.e. not the actual cost which will be much less). Probably a standard policy for any car.

Re: Immobiliser Key stolen in handbag :-(

Hi. I am from the bristol area. can certainly do it cheaper than that quote. I am an auto locksmith. If you do not live near Bristol then it is possible for me to do. but i would need your immobilizer and a lock. the best one being the boot lock. get in touch if you have any questions. thank you

Fiat main dealer in Dublin wanted 600 for a locks-ECU-Keys on a 1.2 Stilo 500. Did it through an independent auto electrician for 200 including re-coding the 3rd party alarm.

Lot of money.

Its an additional key and lock replacement policy I get with (but separately) from my car insurance via Carole Nash.

It covers the costs of new keys and if they can't be replaced the costs of new locks. Before buying I specifically asked if it would cover for a new FIAT ECU if I lost the keys. They said Yes and the phone calls are "recorded for quality purposes".

If you can send the immobilizer and the boot lock to me i can make 2 keys from the boot lock and program them to the immobilizer. Once put back in the car they will start it.
