Number Of Keys...

Recommended Posts

Hi

I had a Y-reg IS200 SE from new and had two keys, plus a valet key (only opened doors and ignition).

Am about to buy an X-reg IS200 Sport for the other half, but the current owner maintains they only ever had 2 keys for it - and no valet key.

Is this possible? Am always worried with the prospect of not getting all the keys, in case it gets nicked or something silly. Is it only later cars that come with 3 keys, or should I be suspect on this?

Thanks

Jeff

I only got one key for mine! I asked the dealer and they said they only give out what's handed in.

If you loose that it will cost you over £1000 to put right - new ECU required etc.

Previous owner only handed the master key in to the dealer with mine, they bought me one new master key, so I don't have the valet key either.

If you have a master key, there must surely be a way making the immobiliser forget the missing keys? That way the missing keys will still open the door but won't start the car or disable the alarm.

Yes there is and you can unprogram the missing keys from the alarm/central locking.

Dealer gave me two keys and not the valet key -- went back to dealer and they made up one for me :D
