Vehicles (17 Jan 2019)
You can now add the vehicles you own to your profile as little icons that appear in your profile and alongside your posts.
This is a bit of an experiment. Take a look under the "REWARDS" menu across the top of the screen for the vehicles "ADD/MODIFY" option.
Let me know how you get on.
Replacement Key Fob - Done!
If I am correct, this video describes exactly the same procedure (only in Suzuki SX4), does it?
My situation is the following:
I am the 2nd owner of my vehicle (made in 2012), which originally had a key with integrated remote locking transmitter, and probably an immobilizer too.
However the 1st owner had lost that key, and used only the spare "classic" (dumb) key after that. That is the only key which I have.
Now I bought a hardly used original Suzuki Jimny key with integrated immobilizer and transmitter. It is in like new condition.
I thought of trying this "triple door opening" procedure to try to pair my vehicle and the new remote locking transmitter, but I am afraid that I might make something worse (for example making the current classic key unable to turn the car on).
Should this "triple door opening" procedure work in my case?
Well, ,I just received my replacement ebay key, so I took out the remote locking section, which was already fitted with a battery, and tried the sequence from the video above and the original sequence I posted earlier in this thread. Neither appeared to have any effect
However, mine is a 2007, so may not be the same as the later car in the video. And the sequence I posted has some inconsistencies, such as starting with the door locked, and then expecting to lock it as the first step. So, it may not be quite the right sequence.
I also need to find a way to check if the new remote fob is actually doing anything, and try a new battery of my own, just in case.
My existing key still works for starting and remote locking, so it hasn't affected that either.
If anyone else knows the correct sequence to pair the remote locking key with the car (not the immobiliser), then it would be much appreciated.
i,m guess the remote locking is not going to work.
If my understanding is correct, that is the immobiliser chip. You will also have one in the non-remote-locking key that you already have. When the key is in the lock barrel, there is a coil in the car that powers it inductively, enough for it to reply to the RF security request. But it has to be in the barrel to be close enough for that to work. The car would need to be re-programmed to recognise the unique code in that immobiliser chip for it to be used to start the car. That is only dealer, or specialist diagnostic tool work usually.
The remote locking (round piece) is separate and needs a "proper" battery/cell to power it to transmit the longer distances.
I really doubt there is any handshake between the immobiliser and remote locking, so I was just trying to use the remote locking section from the new key, along with the blade and immobiliser chip from my old key. But, I can't seem to get the right sequence for pairing the remote locking, as it simply remains unresponsive.
Well, that was my generic understanding anyway - hopefully the Jimny is not far off
I have carelessly already lost the chip in the new key I bought, so credit to Jezz from another post for this picture showing where the immobiliser fits in the remote key.
I still can't get my car to recognise the new remote locking module. I have tried many different sequences found on the web, but none seem to work. I did see mention that there are 2 potential frequencies for the key, so I need to dig deeper to check I have the right frequency for my 2007.
I am still not sure if I am doing the procedure from the Service Manual correctly. This is what it says...
CODE REGISTRATION PROCEDURE
If transmitter or door lock controller replace new one, register key
code as follows.
1) Confirm that the vehicle is the following conditions.
• All doors are closed.
• Ignition key is out of ignition switch.
• Driver side door is unlocked.
2) Disconnect negative (-) cable from battery.
3) After 30 seconds, perform the following procedure within 60
a) Connect negative (-) cable to battery.
b) Operate driver side door knob switch from lock to unlock.
c) Push “LOCK” button on transmitter and confirm that are
operated from lock to unlock.
d) Push driver side door knob switch to lock position.
e) Push “LOCK” button on transmitter twice and confirm that
all doors are operated from unlock to lock. With this, code
registration is completed.
It says to start with the driver's door unlocked, but then to cycle it from lock to unlock (but it is unlocked initially and not locked!). Has anyone done this sequence successfully, and could confirm exactly what to do here? Does it mean to start locked but "cycle" means to lock and then unlock it, perhaps?
