Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
I don't know much about the situation but I'll try to inquire as necessary (it's not my vehicle). A friend of mine has lost his key to his 2000 Toyota MR-2 Spyder, one with either RFID or some other kind of chip (I honestly don't know). So the dealer wants roughly $1500 dollars to replace this key, and it seems like there's no other option.
However, I'm seeing a few things on eBay and sites (like this one http://www.a-1mobilelockandkey.com/transponderkeys.html) about programming/originating keys. What exactly is the procedure and how sketchy is this? I'd love to have some alternatives but I'm not sure all what can be done.
Also, about remotes for this car, I see there's reprogrammable ones being sold online but would they even be able to help in this situation? It seems a bit more complicated than that but I can't be sure.
Any similar experiences to this would be appreciated, thanks in advance.
