Hi,
Can the emergency key be used by itself to enter and start the car? It appears not, as I can enter the car, the alarm goes off and the message "no key detected" is shown on the display, which I cannot get past. I presume the rfid chip is in the fob, and the key... is just a key?
I was hoping I could use the emergency key as a standalone way to operate the vehicle for when I lose the fob (it's gonna happen sooner or later - I would hide the key on the vehicle.) I guess I could hide the 2nd fob (turned off) somewhere in the vehicle as well...
Thoughts?
I have setup pin access.

Clone

Because I lose stuff (misplaced, but never found again!) One could clone the rfid chip (if that's what it is) and hide that somewhere.
I understand locksmiths can do that, or you can order the equipment off ebay.
