3000 baht for a replacement Triton remote?

Recommended Posts

Rang Mitsu and was told that an extra remote would be 3000 baht, are they normally that  expensive? Seems like a bit of a rip off to me. Could buy a small LED TV for that price. Only has two buttons, open and close, how complicated could it be?

I assume that it is not simply a remote for opening/closing door but a key with transponder to unblock the immobilizer? (does it have one?).

As I understand it involves some programming of the control unit.

I once misplaced my remote for Mazda and was quoted a higher amount.

Fortunately I found it later on.

I have an original mechanical spare key without remote but with transponder.

Can open doors and start engine.

Had a key-cutter doing a duplicate.

Can open doors but can not start engine.

I paid 2,360 Baht eight years ago for a spare key and remote for a Nissan (only for the doors, doesn't start the engine).

this will need cutting and to be programmed,

my triton doesn't have a 'key', so will depend on the year and model

That’s only key, remote and coding can be done ONLY at the factory And 3000 is a bargain , usually it’s 5000-6000 for late models  latest models come with a special number and this number is needed to code new remote and key. 
 

for yummy Xmax it’s 2500 baht

Not dealers , factory. Dealers only take your order and charge a fee , no doubt adding some for themselves as well.

work colleague had a Ranger fob key cut and coded at Big Key Pattaya.

 

Is the "remote and coding can be done ONLY at the factory" a Mitsubishi thing ?
