Single Key And Immobiliser Fob, How To Get A New One?
Posted 18 February 2014 - 08:10 PM
We have just returned to the Lotus fold having owned a 111s S1 ( great car, sold to pay for a wedding), followed by TVR 280s, ( spent more time fixing it than driving it!) then a VX220 which was very good but not really the same.
We now have a standard S2, not CAT D like so many advertised, only issue we have is one key with immobiliser fob. I have seen fobs on ebay but we don't know the PIN code for the system
What are our options?
Look forward to hearing from you

You may have to prove you own the car? Take photo ID and the log book to be on the safe side.

I was in the process of getting new keys for my car as the button on the key had worn through on both of them. Took them to a main dealer, with the log book and VIN number and then they want to charge me £160 for 1 key!
Turns out the key & fob is about £50 direct from Lotus parts - the programming bit that the dealer was to do was the extra £110!

If it is the same alarm system as the 04MY 111S, then you don't need the fob programmed.... I only had one fob when I bought mine, so bought another fob off ebay and programmed it myself with instructions found on SELOC. Only after I had paid £16 to Lotus for an archive search to get the original code which turned out to be wrong!!
