    Hello Guys,

    I've got this strange issue with the remote key. Some time back the key was misplaced by me, so on a safer side I got it disabled through TASS. In this period I was using the manual spare key all the time and didn't go for a duplicate remote key. Now after few months, while shifting my place I found the original remote key. Since it was disabled long time back I cannot use it for locking/unlocking the door (remotely). Even when I try to start the car with this key it only cranks the car but car doesn't starts :(.

    Now I took it again to FASS, but they told me to get the duplicate key for INR 8000 :eek:. So my question to the experts: is there any way by which I can get the original key re-enabled? ?

    Thanks in advance.

    How do you disable a key:confused:
    and the process should be reversible.

    The SA told me the code for that particular key has been disabled from ECU. I don't know if it is reversible. :(

    As long as you have the code card that came with the car, it is reversible. Let me know if you have the code card.

    Just a note on this topic. Jishnu (TFIian) who has Linea 2011, he lost his electronic key long back and had ordered a new one which is of 8K. So he got it from FIAT. After getting that key, he can use it to crank engine only from one side of the key. the other side if insidered it wont work at all. He showed me this recently after the bangalore meet. Very strange.
    Why FIAT why!!
