You must be absolutely sure that any Keycard you buy has not been programmed to another vehicle..

The Keys are Program ONCE only... and cannot be reprogrammed to another car..

There is NO "master key".. You just buy a new card from wherever, then go to your local dealer who will reprogram it..

Note also:

1: If you have the handsfree system fitted to the vehicle then you need to make sure that the Keycard is also a handsfree one.. Or if you don't have handsfree then it must be a Non-handsfree card..

2: the key must be for the specific type of vehicle.. ie A Vel-Satis key cannot be programmed to a Laguna, even though it looks the same..
