Hello everyone,
I have basically destroyed keys on my original chevrolet cruze key.

So I bough some "shell" from aliexpress and disassembled original key (with razor, did not found a way how to do it more gently)

I take off board and put it into the new shell. I also take the original key and little bit adjust a new shell with smoot file so the whole original key will fit well.

I went to car to try that and it works like a charm (all buttons), but when I tried to ignite a car ... whoooops it does not work (I just get yellow control with - key lock or something like that)

I went to try the original key (second one) and it worked, when I take the original key off and put the "new" key in, it will work but just until I will remove the key and then it will not work again.

If anyone have any idea I will be happy if you can share it with me.

ps. the key looks withou any damage, so not sure if anything could happen during disassemble part.

The issue is that there should be also something like ignition chip (transpoder chip) which needs to be there and this is something what I did not see in any manuals how to move it to new shell :) So lets hope that i will find it in the rubbish bin :-D

The Just-a-key comes with the chip.
