Keys: The Full Story.

I see. The remote works, it's just the EWS that's the issue. From what is written here on this thread it seems that each EWS comes with a certain allotment of possible keys and that a previously coded key cannot be made to work with a different EWS.

Replacing the transponder chip with a blank, from what you've said, seems to my only non-dealer option, but that is above my current skill and definitely out of my means ($200+ for the equipment for this one job). That and I think he wants this car done sooner rather than later and I've held him up for a whole already.

So if the dealer supplies us with a key or two, and then I manage to code/realign the EWS, it should be good, right?

I would prefer the dealer code the EWS but I wonder if they would even do that without the car present.

And here I thought this was going to be a quick 10min coding

Thanks man.
