Marea Key needed

Hi, thanks for reading!
I need a key for my Marea. I have the red one. Is there an independent that supplies these or is it back to a main dealer?
If as I suspect the latter is the case, how much will they charge for
the device?

I got one one cut on the spot at my local cobbler ( sorry - shoe repairing operative) for 20 :-)
Don't know how common this is, but I live out in the sticks and at least it shows you don't have to go to the Fiat dealer.

Where did you obtain the blank, how did you program it?

The cobbler supplied the blank and did the job for 20. He seemed to think it was all perfectly normal.

A Marea, are you sure? What about the security system?

Yes, I'm sure.
The car is a W reg Marea 115 ELX. I gave him the red key and he cut and programmed a new blue key. It's worked perfectly for a year now. Without the red key it would be completely impossible even for a Fiat dealer to do it - the engine management unit would have to be replaced.
With the red key it's not rocket science. He claimed he could do Fords and one or two others. If you're absolutely desperate, I could give you his address - it's perfectly respectable and he's been in business there for years.

Many thanks for clarifying things. When you said he was a cobbler, i conjoured up an image of a character in a small workshop with a carousel of assorted blanks from the year dot.
I did get a quote and 20-00 is a great deal less expensive than a Fiat dealer charges.
Mind you, I had the good luck to find my key in one of my companies vehicles, so until I lose it again I'll postpone the purchase.
Many thanks for your help Dave. I came very close to asking you for the address, but fortunately my local publican will get the cash instead :-)

If you need the RC fob key (blue with remote control button) then its a main dealer job. I don't know how much Fiat charge but when my Pug 306's failed it was 60 (luckily covered by the warranty).
