Let us know what you discover ... never heard of that one before.

If you only have one ignition key the cost of a second one is not cheap. By taping the key transponder inside the steering column cowl the ecu will see the correct key every time and so the owner can use a cheap cut key from the local shoe repairers as a spare (or for the wife). Obviously vehicle security is somewhat compromised though.
