Trying to get as much info as possible in one post..hehe


I want to remove the door panel to aid in window tint application. Or maybe just the wiper and trim part that covers the edge of the glass.


Also, is the key fob a proximity chip one or can I make a simple copy to have a spare emergency key?


Thanks for any help

Check Evilution and Fq101 for panel removal. The key communicates with the car* to unlock the immobilizer, so you need that to drive the car. :)

*Apparently it's an RF key, operating on 434MHZ.

The key must be programmed in the car computer so either way it will have to be programmed by someone with a STARR computer (like the dealer)

There are locksmiths advertising they can program new keys but I'd check that out very carefully before handing over any money. A dealer can certainly do it so you'd have to compare prices to see which way to go. :)
