Also, to check how many keys are coded to the security system press the boot/trunk release button on the key whilst it is in the ignition and the engine running, the SID will come up with how many remotes (the active radio bit that locks/unlocks the doors) and transponders (the passive bit talks to the security system when the key is in the ignition).
