Hi guys,

I'm currently a proud owner of a 5-dr hatch in Velocity Red 1.6L with Sportmatic and remote entry (no alarm).

How many remote entry transponders should I be getting with the car. 1 or 2. I've only got 1. I'm thinking that it really doesn't make sense to give 2 keys with just one transponder.

Anyone have any idea?

You've got two 3s????!!!!
Man I'm green with envy.... So you got 2 transponders TellyDSP?

I think I'm gonna kick someone in the butt at the dealership.

Anyone else got the short end of the stick like me?

It was probably an oversight. They gave me two sets also, one had the key ID tag on it so you can identify the frequency of the engine disable chip.

Yup had one attached with an ID tag as well.

So to take stock here, you guys got the exact following:

2 remote entry transponders
2 car keys (immobiliser chip in the key fob)

am I right?

I got :

1 remote entry transponders
2 car keys (immobiliser chip in the key fob)

this sucks!

As mentioned, the first one got totalled. The crash was not my fault. The fact I have had two, from two different dealers, does help me understand norms of the cars though.

-2 keys
-2 remotes
-1 ID tag

BTW, I haven't heard about it in a while, and just wanted to check. The immobilizer is on all 3's, right?

Yup, immobilizer standard on all 3 cars in the US.

Canada I believe also gets an alarm system standard.

Well well well... what do you know....

Time to get down to the dealership to claim what is rightfully mine. :)

I was wondering why I only had one remote. Thanks guys, for your help. I'll probably bring down a print out off this tread... just in case the dealer gives me the usual excuses.
