6. Transponder, Remotes & Diagnostic
InstaCode contains a huge amount of useful information about the immobilizer systems of vehicles.
Collected by actual locksmiths, InstaCode's Transponder information has several different types of information;
General system overviews - this can include anything from a generalized description of how the system works (great for fault finding) to the location of the immobiliser ECU.
Transponder Parts - this is a list of known parts from various aftermarket manufacturers (and OEM) that can be used with a vehicle.
Diagnostic Information - this is information that is useful when connecting to the vehicle with a diagnostic device; Information such as the OBDII connector location or which dongle to use with you MVP; and on-board Procedures - this can include the steps to program addition keys, erase keys or even reset the immobiliser system after it has been "locked".
7. Find Bitting and Wafer Swapper
The Find Bitting feature is the locksmith's silver bullet! Often referred to as the "Fill" feature, InstaCode will search through an entire code series for the matching codes when given any number of the known cuts!
This is a "must have" for any locksmith who makes keys to vehicles.
The feature enables the creation of keys to operate all the locks on a vehicle without the need to disassemble every lock!
An advanced feature of this allows for the searching of "one up also" depths; searching for two possible depths in a position. This is perfect for use with lock readers/decoders.
Even when multiple keys can operate the known cut, the Find Bitting feature will generate a "Cutting Tree".
The "Cutting Tree" is a list of the possibly correct keys, sorted into an order that minimizes the number of key blanks that need to be used to cut and treat every possible key combination.
Who has ever needed to rekey a lock? Almost every locksmith! But how many rekey the lock to a new code that is valid? With the Wafer Swapper feature, a new code can be calculated for you that will use all the parts that are already in use; with no need for additional parts from pinning kits or wafer kits. And you can be certain that the original key will not work!
8. Car Openings
InstaCode's vehicle opening information is vast. Written by actual locksmiths, it provides useful tips and ideas that are applicable to the vehicle in front of you. Whether it is a simple as pulling the inside handle,
spiking the green wire or simply so difficult that you need specialist tools, InstaCode will point you in the correct direction. It's like having access to decades worth of locksmith experience on your phone!
