    Angry Help with keys

    Can a key from one car be reprogrammed to use on another... Bought a seconhand flip fob from eBay and replaced the blade tried programming it and came up unknown transponder.... All the ads on eBay say reprogrammed to your car but is this not the case??

    I'm pretty sure its been mentioned on here before that they can't. Only new ones can be programmed.

    From what I can tell, you can, but why would you want to. I was looking on ebay and the cheapest flip key with blade ready-made was about £50. Dealers seem to do it for about £60-70, then there is a Tech 2 on top. BUT they deal with any issues, this is the immobiliser on the car you are fiddling with.

    I contemplated it myself, I've got op-com but I thought better of it. I'm going to the dealer in a month or so to get at least one flip key, because they are awesome
