Yes, the actual blade just separates form the radio transmitter - they pull apart. You may need to use a flat blade screwdriver though.

Can I get a used key fob from a wrecking yard for my c230 sport Mercedes , will it have to be reprogramed by the dealer?


if the key fob plastic is broken but not the internals ( if you still have the key) a locksmith can supply a new key fob and install your existing internals in the new case with out need a program

key fobs are available new from a locksmith or e-bay and the cost will be to have the key cut to the old key plus the cost of the shell

How do I program my key fob to a 94 Olds 98 regency?


Assuming it's a standard GM half moon style key fob, you can get replacements soon many sources including dealerships, locksmiths, and ebay.

Programming depends on whether you already have a working key?

If you don't, you will have to go to a dealer or find a locksmith who has the right equipment (I suspect not many do).

THis works for Holden Commodores of that era, most GM products should be similar:
If you have a working key, it's relatively straight forward, as the car can program new keys.
1 remove screws holding key blades into the remote heads of both keys.
2 remote the key blade from the *new* key and put aside.
3 insert old (working) key into ignition and start the car.
4 with car running, carefully slide the remote head off the key in the ignition barrel. Car should stay running.
5 carefully slide new remote head onto the old key blade sitting in ignition. Make sure the metal contact inside the key blade insert makes contact with the key blade. Make certain the small contact pin on the facing edge of the remote makes contact with the metal slide ring on the outside of the ignition barrel - these two contacts form a circuit.
6 The key fob should program almost immediately, but leave the fob in position for 30 secs to a minute to ensure its done.
7 turn car off and reassemble keys.
8 test all functions of new key - remote entry and engine start.

(get key blank cut by a locksmith before commencing the above!)

Key fob wont work


the battery part just use a flat screwdriver, or if you are like my wife a butter knife, and pop off the back and go get a battery. You should not have to reprogram the remote. I just bought a 98 lincoln and the battery was dead in the remote also and all I did was replace the battery. hope this helps.

Transponder chip in key fob


This will all depend upon what country you are in, and if the vehicle even has the need for the chip to be programmed at all.

When you put a proper key in the ignition, is there a antitheft logo that cycles with the other indicators?

VW antitheft indicator in the USA often looks like a car with a key under it

In the USA, thought the keys have a MEGAMOS RFID chip, no system was active until 2000, and on some models, not until 2002

A system requires a VIRGIN chip. Once the chip is programmed to a car, the chip is locked to that car. Some new software can unlock and refresh some chips, but not 100%

I had a client come in TODAY with a 2003 Passat, and an EBAY flip key.... I wasted a half hour programming time..... but I carry the lower half of remote, which hold the blade and the chip, so was able to fix client up, when EBAY failed.

If this was helpful, please post a nice review for City Lock in Boulder Colorado listings on Google Maps, Yahoo etc. This listing will link you to my website as well. On my website are resources for finding a legitimate locksmith near you. Be sure you are hiring a REAL locksmith!

Thank You
