Default SmartPass Key Fob Information

Good day, community! I am one of the "lurker" members here in the forums (I try to find solutions to my issues before posting, and my opinions aren't any better than the more experienced members of this community) and I have a question for those of you who know more than I do about these vehicles. When I bought my '06 GV, it only came with the valet spare key. Upon further research, I discovered that my car was compatible with the SmartPass system (black buttons on the front doors and rear hatch door). When I went back to the [only] Suzuki dealer, they told me it would cost $200USD, plus $50USD for programming, for one key fob. No uncut key was included in that, either, and I didn't bother to ask.

Members of this forum suggested checking eBay, as some will pop up from time to time. I believe I found one, but I was wondering if anyone had the part numbers (and possibly the FCC ID for us U.S. residents) so that I can make sure. They're cheaper than the dealer, but still pricy. Don't wanna waste money!

Also, any pictures of your own SmartPass fob would be helpful, too. Cross-checking never hurts!

Here're the numbers listed in the posting:
KBRTS003 TS006

Thanks, everyone.

Well, that stinks!
When I bought mine, I only got one smart key with emergency key…very un-nerving to think another smart key might be floating around for my car. Who only has one key for the car?!…if you lose it, that's it!

Might as well get 2 at this price:

2006 - 2011 Suzuki Grand Vitara/SX4/Sport 3 Button Prox Key - Emergency key included - KBRTS003 Replace My Remote

Programming instructions are in section 2 of your OM, only takes about 3-4 min. to perform. Very easy but requires you to follow the sequence. Good luck!

I have a 2010 GV that came with only one SmartPass key fob and emergency key. Been looking to get another, and since there are no more Suzuki dealers where I live (Puerto Rico), have been searching online, and found one on eBay, with the exact same numbers as the one I have. Hesitant to purchase, because for some reason, they say it is not compatible with 2010 GV, though it is exactly the same as the one I have now, same look, same numbers on back. Have call in to my locksmith about it. But according to what I have read, it should work as long as I follow the instructions in the manual to program it. And it is much less expensive then through a locksmith.

On a side note, I am looking to get another fob simply because there have been a few times that the car does not recognize the fob, I get the blinking red key on the dash, also, the push buttons on the doors do not work all the time. A little scared since I only have one fob. Mechanic is going to check to see if it might be the receiving unit on the car that may be going bad.

When I bought my imported Aussie spec GV in New Zealand, it only came with one key. Went down to the local Suzuki dealership and they cut and programmed a second key for me.

I discovered that my link above no longer works
Went to attach the link to this post & this site directs me to marketing co. ClixGalore, so I'll spell it out for you:

Go to replacemyremote.com
Chose GrandVitara for the remote & Grand Vitara for the protective jacket.
Call them to arrange your delivery.

Default Follow up

just a follow up on my previous post, I did purchase the FOB from eBay, and programmed it myself, with help from this forum, and now have two FOBs, but still have an issue that sometimes the car will not recognize the FOB, blinking red key icon on dash, alarm beeping, also, sometimes FOBs will not work. Have been told it may be receiving on car itself, any know about this? Or had same issue? Most of the time it is ok, but once in a while, I will be driving and the red key icon starts blinking and alarm beeps, will do this a couple of times, then all is well. Any help or suggestions are greatly appreciated. Thanks.

And anyone thinking of getting a second FOB, eBay has them relatively cheap, mine was $73 shipped, and included uncut emergency key. I just made sure that it was the same FOB - FCC ID and Model number.

Does this intermittent problem occur with both fob's? Maybe try reprogramming them again.

Did you reprogram them again? That'll set a new set of codes in them. If that doesn't work, I'd try a auto locksmith to get to the bottom of it.

blkprlz, reprogrammed both fobs, still having intermittent problems, spoke to my brother, who is a mechanic, he thinks it might be the receiver on the vehicle. Need to find a mechanic you can check that. I live on a small island in the Caribbean, my brother is in the States, no Suzuki dealers in Puerto Rico any more. Trying to get over to main island of Puerto Rico to find a mechanic.
