new transponder/Immobiliser PCF7935DS chip
« on: July 16, 2020, 08:36:59 PM »
I have read
https://www.fordmpv.com/smf2/ford-galaxy-common-faults-and-problems/ford-galaxy-immobiliser-key-programming-and-information-(mk2)/msg7389/#msg7389

Very clear !!

My remote on remote key (key A in piece above) is not working any more. Bummer So I bought a new key here for my ford galaxy 2003 2.4 lieter automatic.
https://www.aliexpress.com/item/32865959375.html?spm=a2g0s.9042311.0.0.1b4c4c4dAafC9B
For €17,54 and arrived in two weeks to the Netherlands. Excelent.

Programmed the remote in one go. Great I can lock and unlock the car. Great. Works fine. Got it cut localy. Eugh cost me €17 :-(
But there is no transponder or Immobiliser chip in this key to start the engine. Never mind I took out the chip from key A (as the remote wasn't working anyway). There is a special slot to put it in. Car starts no worries. Great. 

Now comes the question. I want to buy a few more of these keys. But I will need to buy the transponder/Immobiliser separately.
I saw that is the PCF7935DS (there are some more codes VA9TC6 07  and 03111)

The problem is I can only find PCF7935AA and PCF7935AS .
Are these the same? As anybody tried?

I have all three original keys so I can "program" the new transponder/Immobiliser according to the above document.
Any help is appriciated

Louis

Hello and welcome, our continental friend! Greetings from England! The Netherlands are very nice and in many ways our closest neighbour!

Now then. Truth be known, it’s not worth faffing about with making your own keys. By the time you’ve bought the parts, had the key laser cut and wasted hours trying to program the thing in without locking yourself out your car, you might as well have just spent an extra 20 quid and gotten it done at Timpsons or somewhere like that. My suggestion is to find a friendly local locksmith and just ask them to make them up for you. They will probably do you a discount if you buy several.

I drive a Seat Alhambra 1.9Tdi which has 115bhp and an automatic gearbox.

I am happy to help you with all your questions. I am not a qualified mechanic but seem to be better at fixing my car than even the most experienced garages.

I have lots of friends here and very much enjoy talking with you all.

Always remember, a motor car is a serious tool and should be treated with respect. Put your safety first, always.

I've brought the blank transponder chips from auto wave on ebay previously, you need them precoded a blank one doesn't work I gather.

Note these will only work for the Ford models, not the Seat or VW models

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/NEW-Ford-Galaxy-2000-2006-ID44-T15-PCF7935-NXP-Transponder-Chip-UK-SUPPLY/122870799935

I've used for forscan to add those chips to a 2001 with only a single key. https://forscan.org/ I think I was also able to program a 3rd key with 2 working ones, by using them one after the other then using the blank. Forscan will let you remove the lost ones though. You just need a compatible lead which was around £20.

Not sure if autowave will post to you, but worth asking.

Locksmith would probably want at least £30 a chip to do them, so it's worth doing yourself. The one I asked to do it spent an hour messing around and then proclaimed it to be impossible to sort.

Thanks for the hint SirDavidAlhambra, but with a remote the price difference is significantly more. I paid around €34,- (plus the transponder1-2 Euro) against a remote (not cut and not programmed) around €160,-
Anyway where is youre sence of adventure???

I will have a check what mine is in next couple of days, , haven't got my keys with me at the moment. but note what was said about precoding,  you need that done for it to work as well. The one I linked to will be precoded. Otherwise you need the kit to precode it as well. I got the impression that want particularly expensive to obtain though wasn't worth me looking into it for a couple of keys when the precoded ones were available.

One of them (a spare chip that isn't in a key but is programmed to the car) is PCF7935AA
This is one brought from Autowave mentioned above, and was sold as precoded for use on a Galaxy.

It may be easier unless you can confirm they are precoded, to verify with the seller that they are really precoded.

Supposedly (I have not tried this!!) but this kind of device can do the precoding
https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Smart-Zed-Bull-Transponder-Cloning-Programmer-With-Mini-Type-No-Need-Tokens/333652873017

Allowing you to use the cheaper blank chips (same type as above, but not precoded). But for a couple of chips as a one off, its cheaper to just buy the precoded chips.
