Ho! Dear :shock:
Your in trouble. :!:
Unless you can find the ‘chipped keys’

With the ‘Temic’ system, you’ll need to change the the ‘ the whole system’, including the matched ECU!

I would say that if you have a non chipped key (please confirm), then the bare minimum will be the ECU, Temic module, the ring that detects the chip (I believe) and either the chip, or a key with the chip in.

You can then use the new chip and non chipped key to make new chipped keys, without having to replace all of your locks.

If I'm wrong, Duncan (kit) will correct me :lol:

That does mean, you won't have to change all the locks, just the Temic parts, which does make it easier. Just get some chipped keys cut and matched to the new chip from the set if you can buy one, I think that Kit may have a set?

Try Kit ( Duncan), it might have a set?

Sorry, I don’t have a set for a 2lt.

I did have set, ‘lent’ it to another member, never to be seen again :x
The ‘Coventry breaker’, did have on for sale @ £175 !
But would you trust him to supply 🤔

One option, might be to ask for advice from ‘overseas’ Facebook pages
