One of my switchblade fobs broke due to the hinge point wearing out, so I ordered a e46 key setup from the website and it was delivered today.

Unfortunately the key blanks used in the switchblade fob vs the e46 style are not the same, so I can't transplant my old key blade. Need to cut new keys, swap in the new brain and back in business!

Go to his website...I just ordered one yesterday. I got the flip key style and it was $65.00 shipped.

That's unfortunate. I wanted the switchblade version myself...maybe I'll go E46 style. So many good choices to make.

Anyone know why mine isn't working? All hooked up as it should be. When I push the button the sensor just clicks and nothing happens.


Edit: figured it out. However I can't find the damn directional light wires.

I hate not listening to my guy instincts and I let a different guy at the locksmith cut the blanks and they don't work. Should have waited for the other guy.

Now I'm in need of replacement blanks for the e46 style fob, so anyone know where to get some?

Is his website down or is it just me? NVM it works. Let me know when you have them in stock.

well fast forward a couple months, never used the keyless entry, somehow batteries were dead, replaced them, now it will only unlock my car and not lock it. wtf.

Check your "lock" connection.

both of my switchblades are already broken after few months of use and i requested a new key blank years ago (was told they would be available due to so many cutting issues) and havent seen any movement on replacements . not very good

originally tried the E46 fob version but hated how big it is in pocket with key sticking out impaling you ....which is why i switched to switchblade style guess that wasnt best idea either

Bad service....

Ordered a kit a few days ago, no response as far as a confirmation except for the automated one from PayPal, hoping for something within a couple days otherwise I'll be requesting a full refund from PayPal
