Hi,

unfortunately i lost both keys (black and brown). The black one was only recognized a few times by the immobilizer so i also used the perfect working brown key. Now i lost both at the same keyring. Or at least i am unable to find them even after several days of searching.

I've bought a used ECU and lock with matching keys from Ebay as my local dealer wanted 1500 EUR for the repair.

Is there any manual how to remove the old lock with steering lock still in use? The ECU is the easier part i suspect. It is located under the seat/helmet case.

Would be glad if anyone could help me.

Best regards,

Holger Amberg

Sounds like a question a scoot thief would ask in Germany you would only have to go to the dealer with your scooter and ownership papers and they would get the number from Piaggio and make you 2 new< keys, probably maximum cost €200

As a scoot thief of course i will use my realname. Good one really. I talked to my german dealer. This was the first idea! They said they have to replace lock and ecu which is about 1500€ as Piaggio is unable to recover lost keys. Of course if you are knowing some dealer which is just ordering new keys i will be more than happy if you may give me its contacts. Way cheaper then ecu replacement.
If anyone is willing to help me of course i can provide passport and registration papers of my scooter via pm.

PS: After your info i called a few other piaggio dealers always the same answer. "Its not going to be cheap, new lock, new ecu, have to take the whole scooter apart for lock replacement" Price ranges from 1500-2000€ first indication. Will send them my VIN now for exact offers.
So if you are knowing a way to just order new keys and everything is fine, i will be more than happy!

something like this below if they cannot retrieve key numbers, and the dealer then reflashes the ECU hardly €1500 more like the price I said above, but with owners documents present

I was able to get a locksmith to open my trunk with the only key locked inside for US$150. He asked if I wanted the key. I said no. Probably thought it was much more than $200.
