This article covers all Isuzu Grafter vehicles and also all of the N-Series Isuzu trucks (eg NPR, NKR, N35, NPS etc…). They both use the same key and immobiliser system so for the purpose of this article I will only refer to the Grafter from here on out.
The Isuzu Grafter uses a unique key blank that we now keep in stock. The vehicle is also fitted with a factory immobiliser system. This immobiliser system reads a small transponder chip embedded into the head of the key when you turn the ignition to the ‘on position’ – the immobiliser then tells the main engine computer (ECU) whether to start the engine or not. If the chip is programmed then the vehicle will start; likewise, if the chip is unprogrammed or blank then the vehicle will refuse to start.
Lost Keys – No Spare
In normal circumstances if you have lost all keys then the owner of the vehicle would have to have their vehicle recovered to an Isuzu dealership, order a key, wait several working days for the key to arrive and then pay to have it programmed to the vehicle. Not only is this very costly – you could potentially lose the use of the vehicle for a week or more.
But don’t worry! We can attend the vehicle at it’s current location, cut a key to your existing locks and program a chip to start your engine – all of this can usually be done as a same day service!
