The Flip-blade housing is
supplied without a “key blade.”
The key blades are purchased
separately, to suite the specific
applications. Figure 2, shows a
list of the twenty-four ( 24) key
blades that fit the IRKEHF housings. The key blades are designated by the “FB” (Flip Blade)
suffix on the part numbers. They
are available separately or in an
“assortment” plastic organizer
box. The assortment gives you a
few of each blade, to assure that
you are prepared for nearly any
The IRKEH, IKT housing is a
four-button remote, which will ac-
commodate sixteen ( 16) different
“Horseshoe” style snap-on key
blades. The housing is available
in two ( 2) basic configurations.
IRKEH, without a transponder
IRKEH-GTI, with a GTI tran-
The GTI transponder can be
cloned to a wide variety of spe-
cific transponder configurations.
Figure 3, shows a list of the
sixteen ( 16) different “
Horseshoe” style snap-on key blades
used in the current Smart4Car™
system. These are the same key
blades that we have been using
for the RW4+ Cloning system.
They are completely interchangeable with the system that has
been successful for years.
The IRKEHFOB housing is
furnished “without” a transponder, and with a “blank” IRKE-HDHS (Dummy Horse Shoe
clip) plastic snap-on cover. The
cover conceals the latch ears and
makes the fob suitable for use as
a “stand-alone” (keyless) electronic remote fob. This remote
is used for vehicles that were
originally fitted with a keyless fob
and those that the integrated key
fob (IKT) would not be suitable.
Some Fords, and other vehicles with “Plastic” ignition ears,
prevent the integrated key from
fully entering and operating the
cylinder. The IRKEHFOB is the
solution for these vehicles.
A CR3032 battery powers the
IRKEHF remote fob. Figure 4,
shows the location of the battery
compartment. Lift the rear cover
to remove the battery for service.
The transponder for the
IRKEHF remote is concealed in
the front corner of the housing.
Figure 5, shows transponder
cover removed and the carrier
lifted to expose the GTI transponder (Xponder). The “soft rubber
carrier” is designed to cradle the
glass transponder. It prevents it
from moving or being damaged
in normal use.
An alternate carrier is supplied
with the unit. It is designed to
hold flat ceramic transponders,
like the T39 DST80 and T80
DST80. The T39 or T80 transponder is required for some applications.
A CR3032 battery powers the
