2002 Ducato keys and alarm etc?

Recently purchased 2002 ducato based MH, We only got 1 key! I think the key has a trasponder? Never found an easy option to get a spare key? Anyone any experience?


Also it seems to have a puma alarm but this looks to have been disabled! I have a fob with the keys but not sure where it's fitted or how to check if it's just been switched off? Again anyone any experience?


Was thinking of a steering lock as a deterent but how easy are these to steal without the keys?


Thanks Ronnie

About the only place you will get another key from is a Fiat Dealer because keys need to be coded to the vehicle. In the past there were two keys of different colours. One was the master and the other the slave. Without the master you were stuffed!!
It might be worth trying a shoe repairers as many of them offer key coding, but donít hold your breath on them being able to do what you want.
A better bet that a steering wheel lock is one that fits over the brake and/or clutch pedal, VERY difficult to get at let alone remove if you donít have the key.

Its not the destination that matters.

It's who you share the journey with (even if like me, itís in a caravan!)
I am very fortunate to have Mrs Plodd to share mine with

ITs worth a try, but if it was a simple exercise there would be no point in having a transponder key

Our 2003 Swift has a central locking system and an alarm, the alarm is a TOAD which thankfully, has worked OK. We have two keys, both have "zappers" with buttons to lock /unlock and a "panic" button.

If one failed, we would be stuck as I do not have a clue about locating it......

I really ought to contact TOAD and ask for tgeir help;

Any typo that I make means the errorists win.

Any comments above are only MY OPINION and should be read as that.
