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.
The first one has uncut blade which needs to be cut, while the other one has an already pre-cut blade, so that blade would need to be replaced with a new uncut blade and then cut that one. However, both keys have already been programmed for a specific vehicle - they are second hand.
It appears that replacing the blade with a new uncut blade and cutting an uncut blade is not a major issue - almost any locksmith can do it.
However, I am primarily concerned with the issues of programming the electronics inside the key and especially the remote (un)locking transmitter.
I called my local Suzuki dealer, and their employee said that it is impossible to reprogram an OEM Jimny key or its remote (un)locking transmitter once it has been programmed to a specific vehicle. In other words, he says that it is impossible to reuse a second-hand key from one Jimny to another.
However, the other Suzuki dealer did not mention this, as a matter of fact, they said that nobody except the factory can program the keys .... while a third Suzuki dealer said no problem, we'll figure something out, just bring all the keys and the car ... for 230 kilometers one way ...
So, my question is:
Can any of those keys from Ebay be reprogrammed to fully work on my Jimny (to start the car, to use the door locks and tp use the remote locking)?
