    Default reprograming flipkey

    Hi guys, does anybody know how to reprogram the flip key? My car recently went in for repair and they done the key they had but not the spare one and now they want £35 to do it

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    it has to be done with a tool that can access the immobiliser system, such as the new version of vauxcom or the dealers tool 'Tech2'...you have to 'unlock' the system and add the key.. you can't do it without either tool..

    ....but £35 is taking the pee a bit!! To program a key it should be around £10-15 + VAT. Shop around with different dealers. As long as you have the Car Pass with the key code on it then any dealer can do it.

    TBH though, given that the dealer had done a repair (what was it BTW?) that involved programming a key - it's seriously taking the pee to want to charge to do the spare key. I'd be giving them a bit of grief to get them to do the spare key as part of the job.

    if it was the CIM, they should have asked for both keys as a matter of course.

    Exactly. I thought it could've been the CIM, hence my question as to what the repair was. If it was the CIM, then as you say, the spare key should've been done as a matter of course - even it was at a later date.

    Sorry all not ignoring you just busy...

    The dealer in question did reprogram the key for free, so happy days.

    Thanks for your help...
