996 remote key fob

Recommended Posts

Hi thanks for that but can you be more specific, I.E is the key immobiliser part a different job to the door locking mechanism. In the key fob there is a little metal tube which i guess is the immobiliser chip. Then there is the rest of the remote door opening circuit board. Are they all limnked or is there 2 seperate functions. Sorry if i appear thick on this subject.

Just to add though... after my trials and tribulations (bought 2nd key from eBay = waste of money, etc)....

My dealer told me that they are are two separate processes. If you get a spare / 2nd hand remote key, you can have the immobiliser bit programmed (by the dealer or similar) to work, but the remote part can only be programmed if you have the 2 serial number tags with it and it hasn't been programmed to a car before.

Ok thanks for that. We have quite a few locksmiths in uk that advertise they can supply new key & program for around £90 Maybe this will be the route i take. Stupid thing is i only want a spare key as going to sell the car soon & does not look good with only one key.

Wow how wierd is that. I just received my key blade this morning from them, They are good & they clone a lot of chipped keys from motorcycles/scooters for me, which is my busness doing cat D/C write offs that rarely come with both keys.

I asked them & they can do the porsche key code job, but they are in Kent & need the car to read codes. I,m in Leeds so its a long drive.
