Car Key Programming

What Remote Auto Key Programmer Problems can a Auto Locksmith help with

* Repair and provide replacement key fob
* Remote car key fob is not working
* Transponder key is broken/damaged
* Provide a spare transponder key
* Transponder chip inside the car key remote is broken or damaged

Types of Car Keys That Need Programming

Since 1995 vehicles are legally required to have an immobiliser system.  To work this requires a transponder key with an electronic chip.  The car only starts if the ignition receives the correct code when the key is turned.

Common types of keys that will need reprogramming include:

* Car key with remote fob ( remote keys ) – provide keyless entry to the vehicle
* Car key with integrated transponder chip ( transponder key ) – cars built after 1995
* Flip type keys + key cards

My Car Keys are Pre 1995

Pre 1995 transponder car keys will not need programming but you will need to find a locksmith specialising in car key cutting.

 
How long does it take to program a key to your car?

Some locksmith shops will have the ability to cut and programme a ‘cloned key’ in minutes.   The Honda Key Programmer itself may have to be present, to ‘read’ some wireless information from a key ‘working’ in the ignition.

Some keys cannot be ‘cloned’ and may need a diagnostic machine to complete the process.    Also, some vehicles MAY require a ‘login’ code or PIN before the programming software will allow the diagnostics-machine to access the vehicle

Can a key fob be reprogrammed for another car?

In some cases YES, but it depends on the year/make/model.    Some cars now have the transponder integrated into the circuit board of the remote-fob,  these cannot usually be reused.

Can you program a new key fob yourself?

In general NO, very few can be done without some vehicle diagnostics.   The internet may say otherwise, but there are variations from country to country.

Some advancements have been made recently, where the key fob can be ‘cloned’ which is scary but is probably being developed for high-street key cutters, but it’s early days yet for full-coverage.

What is the difference between a transponder key & a remote key?

The main difference between a transponder key and remote key fob is how they operate

* Both keys usually have the same appearance Remote Key
* Is run by a radio frequency so you can lock and unlock your car via the key blade and remote
* If the remote key does not work, you can use the standard flat car key to start the vehicle.
Transponder Key:
* Is also run by a radio frequency which allows you to unlock and lock the vehicle
MAIN DIFFERENCE: The key fob for a transponder key also has an electronic chip inside which remotely responds to the ignition, without it, the engine will not start & a thief cannot disarm the alarm system.

Key Programming for Various Model of Car & Van Keys

A auto locksmith can cut, program/reprogram & provide replacement keys for remote fobs and transponder keys for most vehicle manufacturers, if your car key is damaged then a locksmith should be able to repair & provide a replacement set.

Mercedes Benz key programmer, buy AK500 Pro or Ak500+

Here are two kinds of MB key programmer listed to show their similarities and differences, which may help you to buy the one you need.

5-1 5-2
5-2

Conclusion & Purchase recommendation:
From the table above, it is easy to find that AK500 Pro Mercedes Benz Key Programmer better than AK500+, which supports keyless go function and all Intelligent Benz keys 2000-2010. And because it is the original product, MB AK500 Pro is of high quality, works stable, and can be updated (via Email).

But according to customer feedback, here CnAutotool highly advise you to buy AK500+, for the following reasons:
1. AK500 + for $399, much cheaper than AK500PRO ($2340)

2. In most cases, it can meet the demands like:
1) Match and support function “Keyless Go” of Benz Infrared Key;
2) Support Benz Infrared keys lock and unlock for EIS+ESL+ESM , the leading technology all over the world;
3) Support Directly reading EEPROM for BENZ DAS( 1995-1998 )via OBD, can to unlock DAS when you lost all keys and DAS is locked;
4) Read and write the ESL of E/Class and C/Class via K_line, no need remove ESL;
5) Support Benz ECU’s flash(29F400 and 29F800) generate key data. Need use STAR 2000 to do ECU coding.
6) No need to choose the MCU type of EIS. When load EIS file, recognise EIS file, and generate key file. If your MCU is HC705, software will automatically suggest “load next EIS file of HC705”
7) Powerful Motorola MCU programming function,Directly reading dumps of EEPROM(HC908) and Flash(HC912,HC9S12,HC9S12X)for motorola MCU, in support of the engine ECU of Benz, BMW, VW and Audi etc MPC(MPC555/556,MPC561/562,MPC563/564),external Flash(MB58BW016,29BL802C,AM29BDD160,S29CD016,DE28F800 etc.) and external EEPROM(M95xxx). An advanced tool of car ECU repair and programming, odometer adjustment and key programming as well.

3. AK500+ is much easier to program keys.
make new MB key with AK500+ – with SKC:
-Remove EIS
-Desolder CPU 1 from EIS
-Read data from EIS – CPU 1
-Save
-Close AK500+
-Open SKC Calculator
-Download the bin file
-Select keys for calculating result
-Calculate keys (About 7-10 minutes)
-Close SKC Calculator
-Open AK500+ again
-Click Step 4 to write the key option via IR

– Put the removed NEC chip on the NEC adapter of the AK500+
– Ensure the chip direction is correct, and clean up the tin on the chip angle
– Open the software and choose “Renew”
