Snapped Mercedes Vito Key Reading
Reading Auto Locksmiths was called to a snapped key in a ignition on a 2003 Mercedes Vito van in Caversham. Reading Auto Locksmiths was able to extract the broken key, and read the cuts from the key blade. Then we copied the data stored in the head of the broken key, as this van is fitted with an immobiliser so the data from the old key. Needs to be written to the new keys via a transponder key cloning machine. This works by reading the data, and then is able to send the data to the blank transponder chip. Then we put the chip into the plastic head of the key ready to start the van. This works by a signal picked up when putting the key into the ignition from a Ariel fitted around the ignition barrel.
