Replacement Keys

Postby davethesteam » Fri Dec 11, 2009 6:12 pm

Hi all, a long shot but does anyone in/near NE Hampshire know anyone who can supply/program a second key, as my latest Jimny has only been supplied with one.

I'm a bit reluctant to go down the genuine Suzuki route if there's an alternative.

Hi there have you tried the local shoe repairers where you get your house keys cut as a lot of them also do car key's including coding, or the other way is a mobile locksmith who can normally cut a key from the lock and then code it either from Reg No. or chassis No. @ the roadside ( handy if you lose your keys or lock your only key in the car ). Most of them over here in sussex charge about £120 inc vat to cut & code a key or £150 if a remote key fob.

Hi Dan,

Thanks for the suggestion. I did try a mobile alarm bloke but he wanted silly money. I'll try some of the local key places.

Local Suzuki garage wants a £25 search fee, and £80.90 for the key and programming, which doesn't look too bad until you add the VAT!!

Hi Dave, we were quoted £65 by a local master locksmith, (Carlisle,) which after the initial shock and a bit of research seemed like a reasonable deal, we then contacted the previous owner who by an amazing stroke of luck had come across the spare key about a month before.
Worth ashot?

Postby sam_limerick » Tue Oct 04, 2011 1:40 pm

Hi, I have managed to lose my key in a field - I am blonde, theres not much more I can say about this

My Spare key is the same as the lost one and I wondered if I can get it cut at a normal key cutters as it is a simple key with no fob or buttons etc??

I don't think it's as simple as that. They have lectronic transducers in them and magic to immobilise everything.

You could get some normal ones cut and then carefully hide the original key with the magic bits on/in the steering column to emit it's mobility rays.

If you look at a couple of posts higher up the thread, you'll see what needs to be done.

My solution!!

Postby davethesteam » Tue Oct 04, 2011 8:21 pm

Phone Access Lock and Key on 01843 209 200

They will need a photo of the key to cut a new one, the key will cost about £62. You will then need to take the car and the new key to a Suzuki dealer for them to program the car to take the new key, cost about £50.

email [email protected]

Quick and easy (if not too cheap!!)
