Immobilizer Chip Extraction
I had issue with my 1999 V70 where I lost key. Nightmare began involving having car towed to dealer. 1st dealer had a serious attitude and wanted me to buy a new key from his parts department and wouldn’t use a new key I had which wasn’t programmed but I kept it to lock/unlock doors in emergency issues. Had to tow car to another dealer who did accept my key but couldn’t program it saying that it was defective. The next day. Day 2 without transportation I had to buy new key from them. Also, I had to get new fob programmed because when they program new keys remotes have to be programmed as well. After $687 later I still have only one working ignition key and 1 remote.
