this is kind of a kool key. good if you have a few bucks to spend. Anyone know how to tell if i have an immobilizer chip in my key? I think i do. 2006 Accent. I might buy one maybe we can get it cheap if we get a few people in on it.

couple things about those. you can tell if you have an immobiliser if there is a section of the key handle that looks like it was once open to put something in. apparently you can by-pass this by taping the immobiliser key next to the ignition since it is a proximity device.

i bought the switchblade key and was very disappointed. first off, the guy at home depot told me he couldn't cut the key because it was the wrong key. it wasn't, he was just a twat, i could have done it myself. but he did it, and ****ed up so i had to stick my key like half way in and wiggle it a bit to get it to catch the tumblers. second, in order to secure the key into the switchblade mechanism (it comes disassembled) i found that i had to slightly pull the switchblade part apart which required me to unscrew it a bit.

because i did this, it never fully closed or sprung open correctly, so i used it for a week and it fell to pieces and is now siting on my nightstand collecting dust.

just my experience

yeah except VWs are probably mde by professionals, and supported by VW, if they aren't made by VW themselves.

SRs are made by malnourished chinese girls in a sweatshop

Thank you Ereeves, Thats the info I was looking for. You just saved me 40$. My GF had a VW Golf with the switchblad key, it was addictive. I guess simple minds just like to play with buttons. Hey Busy squirrel do you have a link for where you bought yours. I will do another search on the forums anyway see if i can find it. Thanks guys

I bought it here. There was a GB, I'd say, at least a year ago. I know Atrimble2001 and 187sks got ones as well. There were like 35 of them. Mine's in my glove box I think, but I don't have a camera here at work.

They were kinda figure 8 shape mixed with a kidney bean shape. It's fun, but I was too lazy to ever get it cut.

actually, VW just buy's these key's and put their own logo on it, the switchblade key's are made by a third party parts supplier..
