OK, here's the deal... I can't find the Blue key. I do have the Red kay and a key that the locksmith made. Now, I have to do the sequence for the key code as described in the manual. However, it says you need both the blue and the red key. Can I substitute the blue key with the new one from the locksmith??? It sounds so confusing.

You can program your replacement blue key using your brown master key, in the absence of your original blue key. However, if you ever find your original blue key, it won't work again unless you reprogram it together with your new blue key, original blue key, and brown master key.

The thing is, does the key from the locksmith have the Vespa chip? I bought a couple of $30 blank blue keys from the dealer and had them cut at the hardware store for 50 cents. Am I wrong in thinking that to start the process you need to have a proper blank blue key from Piaggio?

You'll be fine.

Put the brown key in and turn it on and off, then each of the blue keys, and then the brown key again.

I had to make sure the blue keys had the hole up to work.

The replacement key must be a transponder type key.
