Default Replacement key in UK

Hi all

New member and new owner here. I bought a 2005 2.4 Touring less than 24 hours ago and love it already. I posted in the new members area with a photo already.

Does anyone in the UK have any experience buying a new key / transponder for the PT? Would like to have a spare but not sure of cost etc.

Regards,
Simon

Timpsons (in most larger tescos) will do you a working key for about 30. I got one a couple of years ago and it's still working fine. The key fob thingy is a different matter,I've still not got around to that.

I've read on here that you can code a third key if you have two already. They look to be about 10 for a virgin key.
What software are the dealers using?

EDIT: Instructions for a third key here.


ALSO found this for coding a fob.2000 to 2005 models.

ATTENTION: You MUST HAVE one working remote to add one more to the system. If you do not have one working remote right now then these instructions will not work. You will have to have a Locksmith or dealership use a computer to program the first remote for you.
Click here to find an Automotive Locksmith in your area to program this remote.
----------------------------------------*----------------------------------------


1. Turn ignition to run position (as far as you can go without starting engine).

2. Using any Working remote, press the UNLOCK button for 4 to 10 seconds.

3. Within the specified 4 to 10 seconds, continue pressing the UNLOCK buton and press the PANIC button for 1 second and release both buttons at the same time. A chime will sound within 3 seconds to indicate that the vehicle has entered remote programming mode.

4. Within 30 seconds of the chime, press any button on all remotes to be programmed including previously programmed remotes. A chime will sound after each remote is programmed.

5. Turn ignition to OFF and remove key.

6. Test all remotes.

The requirements to add an additional fob/transmitter refer to a panic button needing to be depressed, however my 2002 PT only has a lock and unlock button. Searched the internet and drawing a blank on how to add it to the system with only 2 buttons.

Any suggestions would be welcome!

Cheers

Here's a thread from this site some years ago and it does say 2 keys are needed to program a third.
Cheap Way to get a new transponder key!

Thanks Trillion, I do actually have 2 programmed already, trying to add a third. Nothing about how to do it with only 2 buttons though, sadly.

A friend gave me an old off market key fob (Identical to my original) they had so i took the inside out of the cracked case one i'm looking to replace and put it in the new, however, for some reason, it would not work! lol.

I'm still looking for 148hp CRD so I don't even have a car. But with the car I have right now there is a transponder chip that unlocks the immobiliser and an RF board that unlocks the doors by remote. I doubt you will be able to code a secondhand key it will have to be a new one.

Seems there are some diagnostic tools that can code a key by pulling a 4-digit pin number from what must be the SKIM I should think. Still not got a car so can't try it. This video may be relevant
