Step 1: Ordering a new Car Key (usually less than 1 hour)
The vehicle must be brought to Maserati of Charleston before we can order a new Smart Key so that our technicians can determine which “key tracts” are available for the new key.
Step 2: Activation/Deactivation (usually less than 3 hours)
When the new Smart Key arrives, Maserati of Charleston is required to test the function of the new Smart Key, and deactivate any missing Smart Keys so that they can never be used in the theft of the vehicle. This process requires that all remaining Smart Keys are available to our technicians so they can determine which “key tracts” must be deactivated. When everything is complete we will document and register the changes with Maserati.
