Just for your peace of mind I repaired my 16 degree hybrid golf club. The head had come off and I glued it back on with Loctite 620 and its still there after a couple of rounds so your visor fix ought to outlast the car.

I've done about a half dozen now and another one's coming in this week.

When I bought my 308 GTB Fiberglass ten years ago I asked the independent dealership owner if it came with a spare set of keys. He said no and handed me the original keys on a then current Ferrari leather key fob.

When I got the car home, I opened the glove box and found a spare set of keys on an A.E. Lorioli (Milano) key fob. I transferred the original keys to the Lorioli and used that set for years until I saw that the fob was selling for $500

I put the Lorioli away and only use the spare set.

I just noticed an original Lorioli key ring selling on eBay for $695



Here's mine...

Damn, I gave a brand new one just like that away a couple of years ago.

I still have an old used one without the ring

Seems like I had one of those at one time, too. They were a pain to carry in a pocket. If I still had one, someone could definitely have it for those kinds of prices.

Terry,

The A.E. Lorioli fob was made in the 1970s. Currently, COINART (Firenze) makes a similar fob. If you had one for your Daytona, it might be an O.M.E.A. (Milano) fob made in the 1960s. Those are worth several thousand dollars...

Barry- All the fobs run together after 36 some years. I know I still have a pewter fob. I have no clue where I originally found it, whether in the US in the 70s or the UK in the 80s. Was lost in the house for nearly 20 years, until Jan brought in a plastic bag with miscellaneious stuff and there she was. Had turned the house upside down to find the fob, but Jan managed to hide her where nobody would think to look.

Dave- Thanks, fobs got here today. The red fob with PIN really helps. Will allow Eric and me to build one more set.

Had a little incident with my key. Can anyone program a blank 430 key fob without having the car? I have just cut two blanks on Fiat keys and they open the door and turn ignition fine if the existing fob (no blade) is real close to the key in the ignition.

I do have the key code.

Thanks, Jim

Jim- No. You have to take the car and all your fobs to a Ferrari dealer to have a new key/fob programmed into the alarm system. Up to 7 can be programmed into the system. Whenever a new key/fob is programmed into the system, all of those you have must be reprogrammed into the system because the old programming is erased.

The owners manual covers the procedure.

SCM- Yes you can buy generic fobs but they will not work unless cloned from an existing, operating fob.

Hey Man, I read it ten times and my friend said maybe someone can do it so I took a shot. Dealer is 4 hours away so anything to save me that drive would help.

FYI. I can start my car now by holding the red fob with the damaged blade right next to the generic 7$ key I got cut. So this week I am surgically attaching the new blade to the old fob. Should work fine. Then get a key at dealer if my spare doesnt turn up

Jim- Should work fine. The only thing the Alarm ECU cares about is the correct key shape and the correct codes in the fob transmitter.

I've got a stumper for you Taz. In my 430 manual it says "if I see the car locked light come on at random times while driving, is running a cycle and not to be alarmed". I assume it does this to see if the car is being stolen. This concerns me today because I have not yet epoxied the new blade to the fob so it is close but only nearby, on the key chain. I have never ever looked down in 7000 driving miles andc seen that light on, ever.

My question is how often does these cars run a "random" check. Any ideas?

Hi JIm, as Terry said , you must take your car to the Ferrari dealer and program the keys. You need a SD3 ferrari scan tool to do the job. You also need your key card code number . Best of luck.
Alex.

Are you still able to program fobs? I have a 99 355 euro delivered car with only one key and fob. I could sure use some help.

Mark- Welcome to Ferrari Life. Do you have the Alarm PIN for your car? If not Eric355 can clone your fob so you have a back-up. He is in southern France.
