    My roadster only came with one key. The SC doesn't seem to be able to find the proper replacement. Any ideas about replacing the FOB or is Tesla the only option? Cutting the key is easy, I'm not sure about programming the IMMO....

    would you have Tesla parts number(s)? My SC can't seem to find it in current inventory.

    @utch. Hope the info in the image from the receipt below is helpful. key service.jpg

    Welcome to the Roadster family. My Roadster is very close in VIN# to yours and is also Thunder Grey. Enjoy.

    Thanks! I'll swing it by the SC to see if it helps them.

    To close the loop on this: the SC ordered two fobs for $200.
    It was $30 to program them. The blank was $30 and I had it
    cut for $5.

    I just had two new key fobs programmed by the Seattle Service Center. It took one week to have them delivered to the shop. The 10 year old ones were pretty much toast. The total cost, with tax, was $101.88. It is SO nice to have new ones.

    Sounds good! The keys here in The Netherlands (Europe?) look different.

    No, your key looks just like mine (USA 2.0 model), but with a different lock pattern :). You might want to obscure that part of the picture...

    Not sure of the pedigree of plundy's pictures.

    Simple - @plundy has a 1.5, while @Logticom and @gregd have 2.x. The keys changed quite radically with 2.0.

    Good to know! These look exactly like my 1.5 keys. Do you have the part # for the key fob and the key blank? Thx.

    I have for my 1.5 a spare key from my old key set. I got a new receiver and 2 new keys from tesla after a mishap at the SC with a key breaking while in the shop. All good only lost on of the keys now and thought of learning the old key to the new receiver. Tried to learn the key as described in the service manual by plugging the wires from the antenna under the steering wheel together and waiting for the beep etc only nothing is happening. What im I missing, anybody any experience with the 1.5 transponders? The hardware it self was not that expensive as I remember hearing the price only labor is that makes it expensive to replace the hole set again.

    I just had mine replaced by the Houston North SC without any problems. I got 2 and they programmed them there. I couldn't figure out a way to get them programmed myself. Here is the part numbers and what was charged on 5/28/2018. You need BOTH the RKE keyfob and the die cut set for keys to go in the keyfob.

    Part Quantity Unit Price
    Transmitter,RKE systm,434 MHz,Rdstr2(6003342) 2 58.98 117.96
    KEY CUT SET, R2 (2005581) 2 31.15 62.30
    Total Parts 180.26


    Hope this helps!

    Just went to a locksmith to get some non-remote replacement keys.
    Working perfectly. Just in case anyone ever needs the info, but the key blank for the Tesla Roadster 1.5 is "Ilco x168" or "Ilco B61" (the second one is apparently the "GM key blank name". I read that a HF59 key blank may also work.
