Default Re: Solution to broken keys of Maruti cars

I got flip key for my Alto in February 2021 as my remote wasn't working for quite some time due to water logging.

I visited a local auto locksmith and flip key was prepared in less than 10 minutes out of which more than half I took for selecting the key fob.

The cost for remote (with pairing) and key cutting (immobilizer of existing key) was between 1000 to 2000 (depending on key fob/remote selected), with additional 600 for new immobilizer transponder and coding.

(600 was quoted for coding 2 original keys, 1 new key)

I told him to use the transponder of one existing key in new remote and am using this key for 9 months now without any issues.

Total cost Rs 1500/- for the remote I selected.

Great responses. I'm really amazed at the facilities available elsewhere. Had such options been here, I could have got it done at much economical price and a better looking key. Thanks for the enlightenment.

I am amazed you had to spend 6000 for this. Ideally this was possible in less than 1k rupees. Just order two of these https://www.amazon.in/Keyzone-Remote...7777267&sr=8-5 and then get the key pattern replicated at a key smith nearby. After that transfer the old remote and immobilizer chip from the old keys to the new keys and the job is done There is no need to reprogram the keys as long as you havent lost them.

Despite the duplicates being made by many as described here at a lower cost, the fact that Maruti was very committed to look into the matter, create authentic duplicate keys that have given the owner the original feel, though at a cost is really appreciable. More so, because the needs of a 10 year old car was looked after so well by the car maker and ASC.

I am a chronic Maruti critic for its safety record but such human touches by the company and its ASC's keeps it the undisputed leader in this aspect. No wonder, more and more people buy Marutis for this great, big reason.

We can also predict nightmares for owners, if such help is needed from car companies who have wound up and exited India.

I would strongly recommend you to get a new housing, had a similar situation like yours. It was new years eve and I went for dinner with my friends, was parking my car and tried locking it with remote but couldn't, so decided to do it with the key and viola, the key broke into two pieces. With a pale face i got into the car tried cranking it with just the metal piece in my hand. As i hadn't fully cranked it, I was happy that the key was working, totally forgetting about something called as immobilizer. So had a nice stress free dinner, got back, started the car but it won't turn over,the starter motor was engaging all fine but the engine did not come to life. Fortunately I had the broken housing, and I hadn't lost the tiny sensor which cuts off the immobilizer. I sticked the housing to the end of the key and fortunately the car started.

I had a similar issue with my Maruti Suzuki Dzire’s key. The key housing body broke along with the main point where they metal is attached to the plastic but I opted for a cheaper solution.

I visited the local key maker in my area and he replaced the plastic body. He attached the metal key to the nee plastic body and the immobiliser sensor was also taken care of.

This whole thing costed me Rs 400 (after negotiations) in Delhi including the battery replacement. I am now using that key regularly and i notice no issue.
