Keys

Recommended Posts

i have bought an x reg vvti estate,and the door/ignition key has lost both buttons,presumably the central locking and alarm?when i lock the car with said key, is the alarm/immobiliser on or not?

no lights flash or horn sound, if it was working which of these would happen?

lastly where/how is the cheapest way of getting a working key?thank you.

The imobilisor should be on automatically, as that should use a transponder in the key regardless of buttons.

As for the alarm I don't know.

One way for you to test it is to pull the bonnet release lever but don't actually open the bonnet. Close the doors and lock with the key.

Now open the bonnet and if the alarm is armed it will sound.

I didn't know if my Avensis came with an alarm, so that's how I tested it. Luckily for me that's the only time I've heard the car alarm!
