Picanto key is 'normal'.

 

Can duplicate anywhere outside.

that's becoz most conti car has a transponder chip built in to the key which 'mates' wif the ignition key barrel to disengage the immobiliser.

Hi,

 

I duplicate my Nissan car key in Lavendor locksmith shops. Did it two for two different cars at different time. ok.

 

Price : $3.00. Very much cheaper then if I go back TC.

 

I also did once at Bedok.

 

Note: Locksmith must honour revisit for touching up. If they do a proper filing and profiling the first time, key is ok.

I duplicate my car key as well. Can open door but cannot start engine since without the imbedded chip.

 

My locksmith told me this that if I see a key sign light when I switch on the engine, that means it is chipped.
