So what do you need?
- To ONLY open the vehicle door, you need only a physical key (with no programmed transponder?). HOWEVER, it WILL NOT start the vehicle. If you have an alarm it will set it off when you open the door.
- To open the door AND start the vehicle you need a physical key AND a programmed TRANSPONDER. Where you only have one REMOTE or key, this option is often used to produce a spare key which will start the vehicle if the key or remote is lost. Again this will set the alarm off if you have one. Consult your vehicle handbook as to how the vehicle will respond. Many will allow the vehicle to start with the alarm sounding which MAY reset after a set time. Others shut off the alarm as soon as the CORRECT transponder key is turned in the ignition. Check it out.
- To open the door remotely and disable any alarm and start the vehicle you will require a full REMOTE which is a physical with a programmed transponder & programmed remote opening door facility. Opening your doors remotely and starting your vehicle are two completely SEPARATE systems within the vehicle.
- Proximity remote containing transponder to start the car.
If you have the older non-transponder immobiliser then please call in and we’ll talk it over once we have sight of your key/fob.
