    Opcom - key & fob programming

    Is it possible as I'm seeing conflicting reviews on internet.

    I have Opcom I just want to know if its possible before I buy the new key & fob. Do they need to be new & uncoded also?

    Cheers

    transponder chip needs to be new

    remote can be used

    key blade obviously needs to be blank and then recut

    but for purposes of coding, u can use ur old blade fitted with new chip and new (old) remote

    just make sure u get the correct transmitting frequency of remote, there are also a few different variants of key blade types

    theres plenty sellers on ebay so have a butchers. £20-30 should get u all the bits u need

    I've been done this route recently there are two main types Bosch RK203 (non factory fitted alarm) and Megamos M-AM (factory fitted alarm) there is a third Kiekert 5442 but these are rare.

    I used Rainbow data but I wouldn't recommend them or any other ebay outfit cost me £20 ish for a key and blade the bodies are USED (they do state this) refurbish but the blades are pattern and they dont fit correctly plus the little indent is worn which means every time you pull the key out they separate leaving the key in the lock. I called them they sent a few more bodies one was new but this turned out to be pattern part and will NOT fit VX body the other was just as worn as the one I had so a waste of time. Not long after getting it reprogrammed the bloody thing has suffered the normal dry solder joint and wouldn't open operate I now have to put folded paper in there. All things considered and after paying £25 (inc p&p) for the key fob, £5 to get the key cut (which is/was very stiff) £20 for a new transponder and programme thats £50 and the bloody thing keeps coming apart and has paper in it so will fail in time. I wished I bought a new one from VX at £70 ok you need to progamme it but that can be done for £10.

    Unless you can get an almost new second hand fob I wouldn't bother just bite the bullet and buy a new VX unit.
