Hi all, i have a VR Calais which has a buggered keyhead, but i have another keyhead here from another VR Calais which i know is good, my question is can i have the good keyhead programmed to suit my car? Or do i need to buy a new one? Thanks in advance.

I had a key programed just before christmas can't remember the exact method for syncing your new key but i'm pretty sure you need the old one to start the car with so as long as the stuffed one still starts the car you should be able to just reprogram the other one at a keycutter. Lucky bastard they charge you heaps for those heads

As far as I know you can't program a key head which has already been programmed. I think you will need a new one.

The keycutter who programed my key programed three different keyheads trying to get mine to work as i apparently had an unusual key, he only charged me for one. If you can only program them once then he has two useless keyheads and i doubt that very much because he was more than happy to do it.
