But that doesnt make it OK for them to still not know what they are doing.
now you have to find a place that can make a good copy. The ones i got from my locksmith only start the car 50% of the time. don't know if the blanks they use have weak chips or what.So, I went to try starting my car because I figured 'what trouble is it to try again?' and it fired right up. I have absolutely no idea why or how, but I'm not asking questions at this point, just glad to have my car running again . I really appreciate all the help, first step for me now is to get a copy...or 20 made right away.
i didn't mean programming as in reseting ecu, i ment programming as in burning the program from the master. you can just cut it and then turn the car on with it, no burning required. unless that's what you mean to.A T5 key does not require it to be programmed because it is a clone of the master key. The master key is already programmed to the car so this is why the T5 does not require programming.
