So whilst the owner of your stolen key maybe able to unlock the car with the key they have, they will not be able to start it.

And, we are talking crooks here, they are that f-ign dumb, they probably dont even know how to remove the emergency key from the fob.

My advice, have your insurer replace the key and move on, not worth the effort and potential damage of having all new locks installed!

Where do you get this information?
CAS control unit can have a maximum of 10 keys associate to it. So all 10 keys can work on the car.
All of the 10 keys can be activate or de-activate through a diagnostic machine. Manual key will still work, but remote key will stop working after it's been disabled.
