How much & Where do i get a red key?


Recommended Posts

Hi all does anyone know where i can get a red master key??


I have the black key with red dot but thats worn down and ive changed all the locks so its not good but i did not change the ecu


I have been given a key code from timpsons to give if i want a new key cut so do i still need a red master key and what the hell does it do?

The red key is linked to the ECU.


The red key is used to program more keys so that they will start the car.


You should have 1 red key and 2 black keys....


Your better off getting another ECU, key and lock set inc ignition. it will be cheaper than getting another red key.



Thats what i was thinking but this time ill get one with red key :cheers: but car starts ok and thats with all locks inc ignition changed (i just unplued the battery when changing the ing barrel)

pukka what does a red key cost,i hear u need to plug the car in to the diag machine (at a cost of 90 quid) and then pay for the actual job of getting the code from the ecu and making the key/chip



the last one we did cost around the £90 mark as you said .will find out for definate at work tomorrow
