  20. when ordering blank keys does it matter if i get the 40mm blank or do i need to undo my original and measure the full blade ive got 35mm protruding from the original
  21. all done and sorted now kev
  22. ive got a second key and managed to programme that to start the car ,trying to get the remote programmed seems to be a bit more difficult ive got it were the locks cycle after number 8 but nothing am i using the correct procedure 1. Sit in the driver's seat and lock all the doors. 2. Unlock and open the driver's door. 3. Insert the key into the ignition and remove it (don't turn it...just remove it). 4. Using the MANUAL lock switch on the driver's door, lock and unlock the door 5 times. 5. Close the door. 6. Open the door. 7. Lock and unlock the driver's door 5 times but this time use the ELECTRIC lock. Insert the key into the ignition and turn it to the "ON" position. Remove the key. The locks will now cycle by themselves. If the door locks do not cycle (lock and unlock) by themselves then the car isn’t in programming mode and you must start over. 8. On the remote, press and hold the LOCK and the UNLOCK button at the same time for no more than 2 seconds. 9. On the remote, press the LOCK button for no more than 1 second. 10. Close and open the door to end the programming procedure.
