    This forum is not the place craig.
    All i did was mention i am local to this guy on friday if in fact the dealer didnt do that cheap programming.
    The help goes both ways, you wouldnt be using these bentley keys if i didnt point them out to you in the first place! Only a small help given back to you, granted.

    Ive set my programming cost at 35 quid, cheap enough to deter most away from clone tools. Any more and we would be fixing more corrupt dash and ecus than programming keys imo. Whats your programming charge/total cost for above key? Most i have spoken to look to profit by 30-60 on spare keys and 80-100 on lost keys.

    Very helpful :)

    Bought a Seat Leon yesterday and i got a remote key thats not working even with new battery and a spare standard key..

    Ive just got 1 quick question.. to program a new remote key i have to put the 2nd key in the ignition.. but does that 2nd key have to be a remote one also?
    Or will it work with the non remote key in the ignition?

    I think that it can work with a non remote key, but the most important thing is that the key in a ignition must be original, so that you can program the new one key.
    P.S. I sold my car and I buy a new one MK3 (Seat Leon 1.4 TSI FR), so I don't handle anything with MK1 Leon. I hope that I help you

    Yeah the transponder which is in the spare key as well needs to be in the ignition, which is then transferred over to the remote when you press it....I think

    Was so long ago since I wrote this, but glad its been used lots of times :)

    Awesome guide thanks :)

    I bought a new flip key from ebay, had the blade cut (note timpsons refused, an independent in my town cut it)
    Swapped immobiliser chip from the broken key and then programmed using my non remote spare key in the ignition (just as it said in my leon manual) - All working 100% very happy

    Hi folks am new to this and was just wondering if this is possible? I've got a Leon and only came with the non flip remote. Can I buy a 2/3 button flip remote and transfer all parts from old one to the new one?

    The key blade would be a different shape so that would have to be cut.
    Not sure abouts the chip for the immobiliser though.

    I'm not sure to be honest, I'm not much help for this lol.
    In the past I have swapped over the old bits of a flip key to a new flip key housing but I've never had a new one coded or cut I'm afraid.
    I'm sure someone else will know precisely what needs doing.
