Yakuza, when you say "you will need the correct immo chips to program it to your car", what do you exactly mean?

If the vehicle has an immobilizer, and if you get a replacement original key with 2 remote locking buttons integrated into it, does such a key already have the immobilizer chip?
Can this Chinese device reprogram such a second-hand key to another Jimny from the one to which it was originally programmed?

The imobilizer chip is separate to the lock unlock electronics

It's been fettled just a tad.

A picture says a thousand words.

Is the metal key blade easily replaceable in that particular picture?

OBDSTAR F109 Programmer SUZUKI PinCode Calculator with Immo & Odometer Function
Completed

I bought this or a similar item. It works and I can program my existing keys in my 2005 Jimny.
You will need the correct immo chips to program it to your car.


Long time reader, first time poster - Thank you very much for this information regarding the OBDSTAR, it was the last part in the replacement key puzzle for me.

In case it helps anyone else down the line, this was the process on my Australia delivered 2004 M13A non VVT 2004 Jimny for getting a blank unregistered Suzuki key w'immobiliser and remote central locking fully working:

1: Obtain a new genuine Suzuki key - for our Australian delivered 2004 M13A non VCT Jimny, P/N 37145-81A00 was specified, which is now NLA and has been superseded by 37145-81AV0 - this is expensive, but it's a complete key, with everything included - transponder, central locking remote buttons & battery (I paid under $200 AUD delivered from Japan)

2: Get the 6-digit lock code from drivers side door lock (must remove driver side door trim - it's stamped on the barrel)
3: Have locksmith cut key only according to 6-digit code (this should not be expensive)

4: Follow Suzuki procedure for pairing new central locking remote buttons to the car: see procedure detailed by Grasshopper back in 2014, that's detailed earlier in this thread.

NOTE: now the key will operate the central locking, open the doors, turn on the ignition, and crank the engine, however it will not start the car due to the immobiliser not recognising the key - attempting to start with the unregistered key will leave a DTC indicating that an attempt to start the engine with an unregistered key has been made.

5: Obtain OBDSTAR 109 for Suzuki from Aliexpress / Ebay etc to register the key with the immobiliser (I paid $70 AUD)
6. Use ODBSTAR, to register the new key (I re-registered the old key first, then the new key) quite simple to use, but worth noting I had to select the immobiliser by "type" rather than "vehicle model" - mine was "Type 2" from memory (I just went rogue and experimented until I found a "type" that performed the programming successfully as the OBDSTAR failed when I programmed by model)

In summary the total cost was under $300 AUD for a brand new full functional factory key with remote central locking and immobiliser - so a whole lot cheaper than from the main dealer or via a locksmith. Thanks again to the contributors of information in this thread over multiple years, much appreciated. Hopefully my addition might make the process easier / help someone else down the line that doesn't want to pay extortionate amounts of money for something as simple as a replacement key.

The original keys should have the chip inside and they all need coding to your ECU.
The obdstar should manage to code any correct original chip to your ECU.
There might be two or more different series or types of chips for the gen3 jimnys, early and later.

I would however like to know the part number for the immochip, or how to obtain the correct immo chip to make your own keys, because my car has no remote FOB reciever so I have to use third party aftermarket remote central locking keys..

2005 Jimny M16A VVT, 235 BFG MT, 2" Trailmaster, ARB rear lck, 17%/87% high/low gears.

I have just bought a new central locking fob for my key, the two buttons.
It was supplied by my local Suzuki dealer and cost £135 programmed.
I had to take all my keys with me. Didn't take long.
