    Default 205Gti Too Many Keys

    A friend of mine had his 205Gti broken into and tried to hot wired it but failed. In the process, the key ignition is short circuited, melted away and had to be replaced completely.

    He got a new ignition but now he has to use his old key to open the door (the remote is busted long time ago) and the new key to start the car.

    Any ideas/suggestions on how to just use one key? He already spend $800 bucks on the new ignition and don't want to spend too much more.

    How much is to get the remote fixed?

    Get on to one of the UK websites and ask for some advice. You should be able to get a set of keys, locks, igntion barrel the lot for very little money. I could get an ignition barrel with keys for a 306 for 25 pounds when I was there.

    On a similar note I am looking for a locksmith in Sydney to re-key an ignition barrel to match the door keys.

    Hey Tim_K,

    If you find out please let me know the costs. I am sure my friend won't mind doing the same thing if it is not too expensive.
