New fob programming

The bus only came with one key so without any fobs I’m missing out on the keyless ignition benefits. Recently I managed to pick up a blank key blade with a chip as well as a used fob for not a huge amount of money (certainly a lot less than a main dealer would charge).

My Silca programmer came today so I plugged it in to the OBD2 port and paired the fob to the immobiliser. Took all of three minutes to do it.

I’ve found that by locking the bus with the fob or the button on the outside of the door it automatically folds in the mirrors too. They unfold when the ignition is turned to ACC. Sweet!

So now I don’t have to use the key anymore and it’s safely tucked up in the fob.
