I want to get just the key part (that opens the car door) of transponder key as a spare but Mr Mint told me I need to buy the whole unit at a cost $80 plus. Any recommendations for a cheaper alternative? Thanks
Update: the reason I want it is the car (Holden Equinox) has an unwelcome feature that I can’t seem to turn off, that if the key is put in the boot by accident and the boot shut, the whole car automatically locks. I want to hid a spare under the car.
You might want to test unlocking the car, and starting it, without clicking the button / having a transponder nearby as that can set the alarm off on some cars.
No idea if that can be changed though.
