How to Get Factory Key Code with Xhorse Dolphin XP005L?
Unlocking Factory Key Code with Xhorse Dolphin XP005L: Step-by-step guide for quick access.
A customer reported that they were able to retrieve the bitting from a key using the Xhorse Dolphin XP005L key cutting machine by decoding it, but they were unsure of how to obtain the actual factory key code for the decoded key. However, this issue has now been resolved. If you encounter a similar problem, refer to the following solution:
To avoid such issues, it is recommended not to use universal duplicate keys and instead opt for a specific vehicle key duplication.
The solution involves using the phone app on the original Dolphin, which provides the key code information. First, access the 'Vehicle Database' and insert the customer's key into the vise. Click on 'Decode Key' to obtain the cuts, and then click on 'Find Bitting' to retrieve the factory key code.
In my opinion, this is the point where most people make a mistake.
By following this method, you can obtain the factory key code. However, I have encountered some issues with GM vehicles where the code series may span across different years, causing it to search in the wrong series.
Similarly, I have also faced some inaccuracies with Hyundaid/Kia vehicles, in which case I have resorted to looking up the cuts into code on g-code online or other similar resources. It could be a problem specific to the USA.
As a precautionary measure, I usually fill out a code card for many of my customers.
This proves helpful for future references and ensures repeat orders are processed efficiently.
