The dealer will have access the system to get that code. It is possible but not likely that you have a very smart locksmith that has purchased the system to read dealer codes for the antithieft systems, but this device is very expensive so not many have it.


Yes, you have to know how to access the vehicles computer to retrieve and code or clone keys this is all very simple for any computer competent user. The GAME is to keep this info hidden and make people think its very expensive! Regards
