    Key

    Hello everyone, I just purchased a 2002 Porsche Targa and need a spare key. What can I do or look out for?

    Re: Key

    Go to your nearest Porsche dealer with the key or chassis number...

    Re: Key

    I bought a 3 button blank key already. Can I take that to the dealership to program it? I have been hearing about some tag that is supposed to be on the key, some kind of keycode. I don't think the key I bought has that.

    Re: Key

    Sometimes the dealer will do it for you, othertimes they will want you to buy it from their overpriced parts department.

    It is in their capability to do it (If the key is already cut).

    Re: Key

    Need to see a picture of what you bought.

    The cars computer needs to know the keycode so that it can 'allow' the key to start the car. Just getting the key cut to fit the lock will only open the car. It will not start the car unless the computer has been told the keycode. Anytime dealers sell keys you must ask for the keycode tab (Sticker) that came with the key so that you can keep it in a safe place (if your alarm/security computer fails, as it did on my 996, you have to buy all new keys unless you have the key codes.) If all you have is a blank key and no key-code you are out of luck IMHO.

    Oh, and yes, although the dealer will screw you for almost one hour of labor to program the key (if you have a key code) he will not kiss you eventhough the kiss may last longer than it took to program the car.

    Re: Key

    My knowledge and experience is somewhat different, at least as far as 997 is concerned. The dealer must program the blank key with a software number received from the factory. It's the key that is to be programmed, not the car with the key number...

    Hence my post appears in on the 996 board. The 996 keys are not programmed - the computer is programmed with the key codes.
