You can request for duplicate keys at the Dealer Service Centers by giving them the 4 digit key number. The dealer will need to raise a order with Maruti and the keys will be sent to the dealer in about 5-6 days. You have to collect them from the dealer once they arrive and get them programmed. In all probability, your dealer has never ordered them and so is guessing the price!

You will be getting a discount of 200-300 rs when you mention to the insurance provider that your car is Icat enabled.

BTW, in all this time, has anyone heard of an iCATs equipped car being stolen?
Very important for all of us to know whether the car thieves have cracked this system!

Heman, I am assuming that absence of any replies here means that our thieves have not cracked the iCATs yet!

I have read somewhere that a few immobilizer equipped scorpio's were stolen in mumbai (assuming iCats is same as immobilizer).
There was a thread for that incident (not able to locate it).

A wagonR purchased about 6 months before I got mine (now close to 2 years) was stolen after 3 months of that purchase. Not sure if that was Icats or not. (Icats was an optional costing extra then). It was one of wife's colleauge's vehicle, and she has been transferred to some remote location, so cannot confirm.

Icats is somekind of RFID, so i doubt if any kind of parallel can be drawn between scorp and icats security systems

This WagonR could not have been iCATs equipped. This system was incorporated only AFTER mid-April 2007. It was never offered as an accessory/retrofit.

And you are right that the Scorpio system is not an iCATs type of system.

That sounds nice. It means that iCATS is the safest security yet in India .

But that would not stop the towing people taking away the car.

I am drawing inferences from posts on the Scorpio security system thread. (it was recently started; not sure of the title.) Scorp. has a 4 digit security code; which can changed by the user. This code is being cracked by thieves.

My guess is that the thieves are bruteforcing the code. There are not many permutations and combinations for 4 digits from a choice of 10.

To the best of my knowledge, its iCats from Maruti. In that system when you insert the key, it sends some signal or code. If the signal/code matches then and only then the car can start. This is also called Radio Frequency keys.
Link to a few threads :
