KEY CUTTING, CLONING, PROGRAMMING, REGISTERING and BLANK KEYS

BLANK KEYS:

If you purchase one of our blank keys with the intent to "clone" or duplicate your key then you must understand how this works. There's a lot of people out there that think that these blank keys will work on their bike as soon as you cut them. That's INCORRECT. The keys must be cut ( to work the physical lock ) and have your immobilizer codes electronically copied from your existing working key ( to unlock immobilizer ). Remember these are BLANK, NO CODES on the chip ( 00000 ). This process is called "Cloning" (See bellow for more information)

KEY CUTTING:

Some keys can be cut simply by you providing us the mechanical code on your code card, others must send in a working key or your ignition lock.

CLONING  vs  PROGRAMMING:

There are two(2) types of processes to copy or duplicate a key, CLONE and PROGRAM. Some keys can be cloned while others MUST be programmed. Please do not confuse the two. When searching for a local locksmith to do the work for you is best to go in person after you have confirmed they have the equipment ( list bellow ) to further assure they are capable of doing the work. Basic rule of thumb is... ( If they can "read" your key and their equipment is capable of cloning and/or programming, then they can duplicate your key using my blanks ).

KEY CLONING:

Most all keys can now be cloned. Cloning is the process to duplicate the cuts and the transponder's electronic signature within the key. Cloning can ONLY be done by a locksmith or shop with transponder key cloning/programming capabilities. You cannot do this yourself on the bike, NOT DIY. Bikes DO NOT have the ability to "write" info onto chips, they can ONLY "read"  the information in your keys. If you want your new blank key cloned then select the cloning option from the pull down menu from the order page.

KEY CLONING EXAMPLE:

Cloning is not complicated if the locksmith doing the work is familiar with his equipment.
This video shows you the typical process to "CLONE" your original key into the blank transponder key you can purchase from us.



The video is NOT ours Its borrowed from YouTube. We're in no way associated or promoting any
equipment brand shown or used in the above video. It is just for demonstration purposes ONLY
It's copy write and all credit goes to its intended owner.

KEY PROGRAMMING:

All keys even the newer High Security/Laser keys can be programmed by either a DIY or by a locksmith depending on the bike model. The catch is that some models require you to have the RED programming key or the ELECTRONIC code or even the DASH PIN in order for the system to allow you to enter programming mode and allow you to register the newly coded keys into the immobilizer system. If you're unsure whats needed for your Make/Model please see bellow under your make/model, if your model is not listed consult your Service Manual (Some manuals are also available for download FREE bellow).

KEY PROGRAMMING EXAMPLE:

Programming is a bit more complex than cloning. This process requires the locksmith to extract info either from the key or from Dash/ECU/Ign Module, translate it and write that code onto a new chip with specialized equipment and software. Some of the machines bellow like the TMPro-2 will clone & program keys.

   Here are a few screen shots from the TMPro programming process.
   

EQUIPMENT:

Bellow I have listed a few of the most popular key/transponder cloning/programming machines in use today by locksmith professionals. Use this list when calling local locksmiths to ask them if they have the proper equipment.

  • JMA TRS 5000 & 5000 EVO
    Must also have the TPX and TPH Add on modules for newer keys
  • Silca RW4 PLUS
  • TMPro2 ( Transponder maker Pro )
  • Zedbull ( Only the hi-end models with proper software )

NOTE:  Some Walmart's, Home Depot, Lowe's and Ace's Hardware stores have been known to have the equipment to clone and cut Ducati keys, yes even the high security laser keys. We suggest you go in person to investigate your local stores and confirm wither or not they can do the work. Remember, if they can "read" your key then most likely they can "clone" it.


REGISTERING KEYS ( KEYS-by-CODE )

Registering is the procedure used to register (most times called programming) new keys into your immobilizer system for recognition. The procedure varies from model to model. Models that use the RED Programming keys ( Most pre-07 models ) will use such key in order to enter programming mode followed by a series of "IGN ON / IGN OFF" sequence with old and new keys to register them into the system for recognition. Non-Red Key models ( Most post 07 models ) will use the "ELECTRONIC" code from your code card plus a series of hand control sequence in order to enter programming mode, followed by "IGN ON / IGN OFF" sequence with old and new keys. Some models (Diavel, MTS 1200, Panigale, Scrambler, M821, M1200) can ONLY have new keys registered/programmed by your Ducati dealership or a shop with the proper equipment (Ducati DDS "Ducati Diagnosis System") YES we have a DDS and can do this.

As an added bonus if you are replacing a lost key, a key someone took ( Angry Ex-wife/girlfriend ) that you no longer want them to have access to your bike OR a key you never received from the original seller/auction, this process will also remove those keys/codes from the immobilizer's memory rendering those keys useless to its current holder ( ONLY to engine start, they will still work the physical locks ). BUT we can change the lock combination of most locks to keep that from happening.

If you purchase a Pre-Programmed key from us (Keys by Code) then this means the key will come with its transponder chip pre-programmed with a code ( Based on your Code Card Information ) so now it just needs to be registered into the bike's immobilizer system thus allowing the bike to recognize it and allow engine start.

( See bellow for model specific Step-by-Step procedures )

Key programming / procedure / steps / sequence
and immobilizer override for ALL Ducati models as listed


HOW TO REGISTER / PROGRAM NEW KEYS INTO YOUR DUCATI:

Please note that in order for you to "Self Program" or "Register" a new coded key into your immobilizer system you'll need to have either your RED key (models that use the RED master key system) or the "Electronic Code" from your Code card. No other way of Self Programming or Registering is possible. For more information and clarification of BLANK vs CODED (Keys-by-Code) keys please read the "Duc-101" Section of this site.

REGISTERING (PROGRAMMING) KEYS USING RED MASTER KEY:
Models with Marelli and Digitek "Dial" type dashes
( 749, 999, Monster 620, 700, 800, 800ie, 820, 900, 1000, S2R, S4R, S4Rs, Multistrada, Sport Classic, Super Sport, ALL Red Master Key Models )

NOTE: You MUST have a minimum of 3 keys (1 RED, 2 BLACK) to complete the programming process. (Black keys cannot be copies of each other)
NOTE: Each step MUST be completed within 15 seconds of each other.

1- Ignition ON and OFF with RED KEY (within 3 seconds)

2- Ignition ON with BLACK KEY #1
    Dash should display "2" and start a count down from 30
    Turn OFF ignition before countdown reaches 0
3- Ignition ON with BLACK KEY #2
    Dash should display "3" and start a count down from 30
    Turn OFF ignition before countdown reaches 0
4- Repeat with any additional keys (Up to five(5)
5- Ignition ON with RED KEY (This closes your programming session)
    Dash should display "4" (if using two(2) BLACK keys)
    A count down from 30 starts
    Turn OFF ignition before countdown reaches 0
6- Ignition ON with RED KEY again
    If programming is successful dash will display "ON" ( You're ready to ride )
    OR
    If programming has failed dash will display "OFF" or count down from 30 starts
    If so, go back and start over


ECU / IMMOBILIZER SELF TEST:
ONLY for models using the RED MASTER KEY

We often get asked a lot of questions about the ECU and immobilizer built into Ducati motorcycles, and they do seem to reset themselves from time to time, especially if the battery drains for any length of time. Symptoms are typically that you can no longer start the bike using your normal key(s).

Luckily, the 5.9M ECU has some self-diagnostic checks built in which you can perform with the Red key supplied with your motorcycle. Note that later Ducati motorcycles such as the 1098, Streetfighter, Hypermotard, etc, did not come with a Red Key so this method CANNOT be used.

CHECKING FOR CORRECT IMMOBILIZER PROGRAMMING:

You can check the immobilizer for correct programming as follows:
1. insert the Red key into the key operated ignition switch
2. turn the switch to the "On" position.

The LED will now perform a series of flashing sequences with a short pause in-between:

FIRST SEQUENCE:
The LED flashes once. Duration indicates whether the immobilizer is blank or has been programmed. A 2-second pulse indicates a blank immobilizer (this occurs when one step of the programming procedure has not been performed within the specified time limit). The procedure will have to repeated.

SECOND SEQUENCE:

The LED flashes quickly (0.7 seconds pulses) and repeatedly to indicate how many keys have been stored. When programming is correct, the LED will flash three times.

THIRD SEQUENCE:

This sequence indicates a system fault:

  • If the system is OK, the LED stays off.
  • the LED flashes once to indicate that the serial connection is missing (this is the direct connection - through the main wiring - between engine control unit and immobilizer control unit in the instrument panel);
  • the LED flashes twice to indicate that the key in the switch, or the immobilizer antenna, or both, are faulty;
  • the LED flashes three times to indicate that the system does not recognize the key you have inserted;
  • the LED flashes four times to indicate that the engine control unit has been programmed, but the immobilizer is blank.
In either case, the engine will not start.

FOURTH SEQUENCE:
  • the LED stays off if engine ignition is enabled;
  • the LED comes on and stays on if engine ignition is inhibited.


REGISTERING (PROGRAMMING) KEYS USING ELECTRONIC CODE:
Models with Digitek dashes ( 848, 1098, 1198, Monster 659, 696, 795, 796, 1100 )

NOTE: You MUST have your Electronic Code and 2 BLACK keys to complete the programming process. (Black keys cannot be copies of each other).

1- Press and hold "MODE" button on left grip UP, while holding turn Ignition ON (With any key)
2- Dash should now display "PRO 00000"
    ( If not, use
"MODE" button UP/DOWN until “PRO 00000” is displayed )
3- Hold the "MODE" button DOWN until the first digit flashes on the display
4- Press the "MODE" button DOWN until the first digit of your Electronic Code is displayed
5- Press the "MODE" button UP to move to the next digit
6- Press the "MODE" button DOWN until the correct second digit is displayed

14- Key OFF (This will end programming sequence)

NOTE:
If either the 3-second countdown after Key-On, the 15-second countdown after Key-Off reach zero or if programming procedure, sequence or timing is incorrect, the Dashboard aborts the programming and will display "OFF" for 3 seconds and then go back to normal display.
You must start all over.



HOW TO OVERRIDE THE IMMOBILIZER ON YOUR DUCATI:

Please note that in order for you to be able to override the immobilizer you'll need to have either your RED key (models that use the RED master key system) or the "Electronic Code" from your Code card. No other way of overriding the immobilizer system is possible. For more information and clarification of immobilizer and code recovery please read the "Service-101" Section of this site.

The Vespa additional key programing process is pretty simple and doesn't involve any complex or expensive dealer equipment or require you to have Mechanical or Electrical engineering degree. The electronics and programing in the Vespa BROWN Master Key does all the work for you. All you really have to do is some quick key IGNITION ON/OFF switching. You will need your master (brown) key, and any OEM blue keys to be programmed. You can program multiple blue keys in the same session, so if you have more than one, have all of them ready.

NOTE: If you purchase a BLANK key from us then you DO NOT need this procedure. Just CLONE/COPY any working key and USE.

           THE BASIC PROCEDURE IS AS FOLLOWS

  1- Insert brown key into the ignition.
  2- Turn it ON and then OFF (within 2 seconds and WITHOUT staring engine) then remove.
  3- Insert blue key into the ignition.
  4- Turn it ON and then OFF (within 2 seconds and WITHOUT staring engine) then remove.
  5- If you have additional blue keys, repeat step 3 and 4 for the rest of those blue keys.
  6- End programming session by inserting the brown key again.
  7- Turn it ON and then OFF (within 2 seconds and WITHOUT staring engine) then remove.

  And that should do it for the programming! Now check to make sure all the keys can start
  your scooter. If it doesn't you may want to make sure you're doing the whole procedure
  fast enough and not waiting too long in between the steps. You can try 1 Sec between
  ON/OFF if above is not working.


   Any older blue keys that aren't reprogrammed when you program the new blue keys,
   WILL NO LONGER WORK. Each time the "programming" process occurs, the Vespa starts
   new and forgets all the old keys. This shouldn't be a problem if you accidentally left
   out some older keys. Just repeat step 1 to 7 above, making sure to include all the blue
   keys you own
