The key code will be six letters from the group M, N, P, R and S. For example: SNSMRP.
Sometimes a number can be placed before, after or in between the letters. For example: SNS3MRP.
The key code is usually recorded in the vehicle service book.
The key can be cut from the key code or a decent digital picture of an existing key for the vehicle.

if a key that starts the vehicle is brought or sent to us we have the facilities to copy the transponder chip within it onto a new one. The new key will then start the vehicle without any further programming being required. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org

Modern immobiliser systems using a transponder chip within the key started to be introduced into vehicles in 1994. On the 1st October 1998 it became mandatory for all new vehicles sold in the UK to have a factory fitted immobiliser system. These systems are automatic, meaning the owner does not have to remember to activate it.
A key without a programmed transponder chip will not start the vehicle.
