Smart key programming? Is it DIY job?

Hi,

Anyone have experience in smart key programming for cars? My car smart key is malfunctioning so I called several places/persons and it will cost around Rs 18500. When I checked the ebay there are car key programming units available around 12k (I search for one, which is compatible with my Suzuki Swift 2010).  Can we do it ourselves? If I purchase car key programmer unit, I might able to start part time job to program these smart keys at cheaper price.

What are the risks associated with it? According to youtube videos, key programming is not a difficult task. But reality is that the same?

thanks

Did you try a place like Pet#o ?

But if the difference is only around 6k when you buy a programming unit  dont you think its worthwhile to get it done from a place that has experience in this sort of thing. That way the risk of incompatibility would not be an issue.

This is not a bad idea, but to program the first key it will cost you more than 18500. but you can reuse that key programmer. Only risk i can see is future car models might not be supported by this programing unit (but still you can use it).  actually key is not the one which is programmed. normally a car supports to add 3,4,5 smart keys.

what this programming unit does is just add a new smart key to the car smart key unit.
