Default Flippy Keys

Hey guys I searched for these on the forum, and couldn't find any information relating to them.

OK so we have all seen these key fobs that come with such cars as Skodas, i20s, Fiats, VWs etc.



The above image is for reference.

Well I've seen some people get such keys for cars like the swift and the santro.

Now my question is where in India can I get a blank flip key (Sidewinder key) with a transponder chip in it the same frequency as Hondas.

I'd like to get a couple of spare keys made like this, but they have to have the appropriate transponder in them.

Awaiting any and all replies, thanks.

I had bought the flipkeys through Ebay. But, these do not come with the chipset. I had taken out my existing key's chipset and put that in the flipkey. I got it couple of these for my i10 and they are pretty good.

How do you take the RFID chipset out?

I need them badly since the keys scratch the mobile phone & Ipod screen regularly when inside my pockets.

Hello knp,

If you can post the pictures of the keys you are using, that will help us a lot. Where did you get the keys cut? Hyundai A.S.S? If you can point me to the direct URL for the flipkey that you have bought, it will be very nice of you.

TIA
Mrinal.

Default Confused!

Hi guys,

I am totally in love with these flip keys but I am really curious to know as to how does one make these flip keys compatible to your originaly set?

Further more, this is specifically for 'KNP', how did you integrate the circuit of your remote control or your security system with that of the flip key? i saw the product on Ebay which is a 02 button remote flip key casing. I am using the Xenos Firewall 350 security system which comes with a remote having 03 functional buttons. How does one intigrate it in this case?

Glad to see the interest here on these keys, yet surprised to know that this topic didn't exist till today.

Well I agree that the key shells are easy to come by, the only problem is that I need spare keys (Have only 1 surviving key with me.) Honda's charging INR 8,000 for 1 key. I may very well buy the key and then get a shell and transplant it like you mentioned, but that just increases my cost unnecessarily.

Hence the request for flip keys with pre-existing guts that can be programmed.

All you need is a flip key shell with matching dimensions to your original key. The transplantation then is straightforward.


Anyone know the cost of a spare i20 or linea key? Also what frequency transponder do they use? The spares from A.S.S. wont be as expensive as Honda, and if they can be used then I'm sure a lot of people would love to pick them up.

Doc, do you mean to say that one cannot have them intigrated to an aftermarket remote and can only be intigrated to remotes provided as OE?

I had bought them through ebay.com (GiES stores) and I had paid around 19$ per piece ncluding the shipping to India. I had bought 3 pieces for hyundai i10, but actually cut only one and keeping two as spares.

I got the keys cut from a duplicate key maker at JP nagar, near Dalmia circle and paid 50/-. It's very easy to move the chipset from the existing remote to this flip keys.

I will try to take few pictures of this and post them.
If anyone wants, then I can sell one piece (this is for hyundai i10) as I got the custom logo stickers of Hyundai only for them.
In fact, I got to know about this from one of the hyundai forums, Flip Key - Hyundai-Forums.com

This is the model that I am having ..

I was searching eBay for my Getz Prime, looks like the key block will match that of the i10. But my remote is the oval Minda one (Hyundai OE) and there isn't any casing available to match these buttons.

In case you find any please let me know, or it'll be a good DIY for me to fix the transmitter.

Well if your original key is just a key, and you have an aftermarket or even OE remote like below


If this is the case then all that matters is if your key has a transponder.

The flip keys will accommodate your alarm system's fob guts, but if your key has a transponder then it requires some soldering onto the alarm system's board.

This is something I do not recommend, simply because I have my reservations on the same. But I'm sure it's possible and will work reliably.

What I had mentioned earlier referred to cars with transponder keys and integrated remotes. There are flip key cases out there which are made to perfectly accommodate your original key.

For example I'm having 2 keys made sometime this week from http://asharkeyhub.in/home.

Then I'll probably look for a good flip key case in India or Singapore and will have that by July.

Of course if someone could find the flip keys with a transponder in them, then it'll be way cheaper to just get those made.

Cheers.

PS: Ashar Keyhub is charging Rs 3,000 to duplicate one key for the Honda Accord, and this seems reasonable. I had a word with the owner this afternoon and he seems to be a really professional dude. I'll be taking my car there for my duplicate keys on Sunday morning.
