#279488 99 ford mustang scp not configured?

Posted by Lockin4u on 14 July 2014 - 11:20 PM

First off, there cannot be just one key stored in a '99 Mustang. The little bit of information that you have provided points toward using the wrong protocol...again. And once more I would advise reading the manual that came with your programming devise, preferably before you start, to prevent placing yourself in this situation in the future.

 

I would also recommend submitting an application to join Keypro, assuming you are a legitimate locksmith. Once verified and accepted, you may ask for and possibly receive the technical advise that our membership cannot discuss in a public forum such as this.

#285156 Mysterious Problem re Mortise Lockset

Posted by Slik on 08 September 2014 - 03:53 AM

If you state you area of residence we could point you to a qualified locksmith in your locale. Sometimes when it's not an easy fix by someone with the experience you've gained from other doors you've been able to fix, you may cause more damage, thus more work, for the professional you hire to do the job.

I'm sure since you have the interest in repairing these type of things, you will no doubt gain a bit more knowledge by watching a professional take care of it this time so you can do it yourself next time.

#281148 What is the best Power Inverter for a mobile locksmith ?

Posted by Lockin4u on 30 July 2014 - 09:42 PM

This is a PUBLIC forum. For those who do not understand what that means, Public Forums on Keypro exist for members of the GENERAL PUBLIC, as in people who are not locksmiths and certainly not Keypro members, to ask the advise of Keypro members. This forum is not here to allow locksmiths who want to use the Keypro forum free of charge and avoid paying the yearly membership fee to ask the advise of paying Keypro members.

 

The Keypro membership is expected to observe which forums they are posting in and only post appropriate comments.

No - that's not a valid code.

 

Just for your and others information - this area is for individuals to ask general questions and possibly be steered to a competent locksmith that could help them.  Posting to ask for information such as you have requested is not permitted!  I'm sure you would agree that furnishing such information on a public forum would not be ethical or smart.  Positive ID and registration information are required before any reputable locksmith would provide this kind of service.

#280914 03 Nissan Altima, 1610 fault code

Posted by Lockin4u on 28 July 2014 - 01:12 AM

This is a forum open to the general public. The purpose of its existence is to point a member of the general public in the right direction, i.e., advise them of simple do-it-yourself solutions to try themselves that do not require proprietary tools or special skills. Or if the issue they are having could possibly be something that a Keypro locksmith could help them with, help them find a competent locksmith in their area, etc. This forum does not exist to advise the general public how to do their own key programming utilizing diagnostic equipment or perform diagnostic analysis on their vehicles.  

 

If you are a locksmith and a non-member using this forum to ask questions and receive advise from this family of the finest locksmiths in the world, please submit a membership application. upon approval you will pay the $100 yearly membership fee and have access to the locksmith specific information and advise you seek. If your are looking for free advise, please apply for membership to one of the free locksmith sites, such as Locksmith Community. 

 

Current Keypro members are expected to make the effort to observe which forum they intend to post in and include the appropriate content when doing so. This is not the first mention of this expectation.

 

Below is an example of the type of question and response expected in the Public Area forums.

 

Customer Question: I dropped my smart key in the pool and now it doesn't work. Is there anything I can do?

 

Locksmith Answer: Yes, I have several suggestions.

 

(1) Separate the 2 halves of the casing and remove the circuit board. Remove the battery from the board. Spray the board off thoroughly with electrical contact cleaner or pour some alcohol over it. Then dry it off with a hair drier. Replace the battery with a new one, reassemble and test the key. 

 

(2) Disassemble the key and clean as stated above. Then place the circuit board in a small container of dry, uncooked white rice for a couple of days. The rice will draw the moisture away from the circuit board and components.

 

(3) If you try the above mentioned suggestions and the key still does not work, post your general location and we will try to find a Keypro locksmith in your area that can program a new key for you.

 

I've tried to make this explanation absolutely clear. If there are any Keypro members who aren't clear on this subject, please PM me or post an inappropriate response to a question in a Public Area forum. I'll make sure to remove all doubt.

You are using the wrong protocol. Instructions are in the Advanced Diagnostics manual that you should have received with your T-Code Pro purchase.

#278170 Dealership not being able to program keys

Posted by yorklock on 02 July 2014 - 11:44 AM

Accepting a job that you know you can't complete is bad for everyone concerned.   If you don't have the proper equipment, you should politely decline the job and refer them to someone who can help her.

 

This is an example of a lose-lose situation.

 

You wasted your time, the customers time and left the customer with the ability, and a reason, to speak negatively about you.

#274610 storefront lock alarm

Posted by Assurance Lock on 29 May 2014 - 02:08 AM

Contact your alarm company about having a micro-switch installed in the door frame.  When you lock the door, the bolt will swing up and make contact with the micro switch.  This will put your alarm system in "ready" mode so it can be activated.

Posted by Snake on 08 May 2014 - 06:33 PM

A transponder key will not cause the vehicle to die while driving.

 

I suggest a qualified repair facility for this situation.

 

Sounds like an electrical issue.

Posted by 77luke on 26 April 2014 - 09:57 PM

I have used 4 of them for about 2 years. One has failed (touchscreen seems to be dead). I did contact arrow....and wasnt able to get the problem resolved. I didn't really try that hard to get them to warranty it...I wouldn't mind knowing how to fix it myself though! Haven't had any issues with the other 3 yet.

#270439 Do not duplicate key?

Posted by Locksmitherie on 20 April 2014 - 11:00 PM

I would recommend replacing the deadbolts, and with a key controlled product. Many locksmiths will have at least one of the following, and each will assure signature card only access to more keys:

 

1. Medeco 3

2. Assa Maximum+

3. MX Series

 

We use these cylinders, generally in a SCHLAGE B660 model deadbolt, NOT B60, NOT B560.... B660 Commercial grade with fixed-backset bolt.

 

This is ESPECIALLY important if you have light, residential grade deadbolts on your doors.

 

For the knobs and levers, replace with NON-KEYED handles. These will eliminate lockout situations. You will get smoother operation, longer life and key control.

 

The baseline of quality for door locks has been far too low, for far too long.  Locksmiths help raise the bar!

 

That is WHY you will want your trusted locksmith firm on your contact list!

#266382 Keying of Schlage 5-pin and 6-pin SC1 keyway locks

Posted by Lockin4u on 04 March 2014 - 03:48 PM

Yes, the 6 pin lock can be keyed to match the 5 pin lock's key. A locksmith in your area should be able to help you with that.

Posted by Greg_B on 07 January 2014 - 12:01 AM

Circumstance of facts given should stand that replacing a key shell has an equal relation to a no-start condition as adding air to the tiires.

 

Cars are complicated, and there are far too many times when a customer decides that one thing must have caused another, without rationalizing.

Edward Woods CML CPS CAL

Are you the lady that called me yesterday and said two local locksmiths failed to make a key for our car? We got disconnected and I didn't hear anything after that.
