Question: Why does the GM produced H1 Hummer us a Ford 5 Cut Ignition?

H1 Hummer

The civilian model began in part because of the persistence of Arnold Schwarzenegger, who saw an Army convoy while filming Kindergarten Cop in Oregon and began to campaign and lobby for a civilian version to be available on the market. In 1992, AM General began selling a civilian version of the M998 Humvee vehicle to the public under the brand name “Hummer”. The first two Hummer H1s to be sold were purchased by Schwarzenegger.

M998 Humvee

2000 Hummer H1 Broken Ignition. H1 Hummer 5 Cut Ford Ignition Malfunction. The Ford 5 Cut ignition failed and this is usually caused by a small piece of the buzzer jams the pins or get bunched up in the back of the ignition . In most cases it is easy to remove the broken piece, turn the ignition to the accessory position, depress the retainer pin and remove the ignition. However, somebody who did not know what they were doing, cracked the ignition and turned a simply car locksmith job into a bit of a nightmare.

Customer was happy to get back on the road. Note: H1 Hummer manufactured by GM, has a GM Diesel engine but uses a Ford 5 Cut Ignition.

Xhorse Key Tool Plus Car Programmer | Mr. Locksmith Vancouver West

Xhorse Key Tool Plus Car Programmer: Xhorse Key Tool Plus Car Programmer is a professional all-in-one car Programmer. It has multi-function, Bluetooth and WIFI communication interface that are integrated inside. It is a very easy-to-use and a flexible device.

Xhorse Key Tool Plus

Mr. Locksmith Vancouver West: (604) 760-7620

Mr. Locksmith Automotive Vancouver West(604) 259-7617

 

This is the XHorse. It’s a key tool plus. We’ll get all into the bits and pieces. I just got it – literally, a couple of hours ago and we’re gonna unbox it. And we’re going to take a peek at it, and hopefully, it’s got some cool features that I really need badly – and then we’ll talk about that too. So, let’s see what we got here. Let’s unbox it, and, let’s see if it’s got the special cables we need.

Okie dokie. What do we got here? Nice case. Here is the XHorse Key Tool Plus. So let’s see what we got here. I’ve never seen one, I’ve been looking at them online, and this may have exactly what I need. So, instructions – most instructions are useless so let’s hope for the best.

Right off the bat, it looks kind of rugged – it looks pretty good. I’ve heard good things but let’s see how it works for us. We got a couple of ports, and everything – looks really, really nice. Apparently, this can reset Toyota proxes and we’ll be putting that to the test. We’re actually going to use this as our go-to-machine. We’ve got quite a bit newer cars, and we were running across problems so let’s see if that’s got that.

What do we have in here? Cable – looks like the recharging cable. OBD 2 cable. Serial. Port connection. Couple of adapters. It looks like they’re very well built. And Xhorse supertransponders.  I’ve been happy with some of their other products – we’ll talk about that later.

Unboxing Key Tool Plus Highlights:

  1. Language: English ,French ,Spanish ,Portugues ,Chinese The rest language beside those 5 , only xhorse local dealer can activate related language For example : If you need Russian language, only xhorse russia dealer can activate it to customer.
  2. Update Online free Lifetime
  3. Read Xhorse bonus points for copy 48 96 bit (100 points) and mercedes calcuation (200 points). It can bind with key cutting machine, the Mercedes calcuation can get 1 day a free token everyday.
  4. All-in-one functions. It provides an all-in-one security solution for locksmiths that combines functions of VVDI2, VVDI MB, Key Tool Max and VVDI PROG with the ability to expand the capabilities as needed.
  5. Toyota H Smart Key AKL Without Emulator 6.Global Full Version, Color Orange VVDI PAD is GL Global Version, just different Power Aadapter for EU/UK/US Plug.

For further information go to https://www.xhorsetool.com/

What more do we got here? More cables. I haven’t looked it up but I think this is the real problem I have right now. The newer Fords – if they go into alarm, you have to reset the alarm and nothing we have can do it. So, this is what started the big push. If you looked into my previous videos, I have five or six car key programmers and nothing has this at the moment. Though, I think one of the products may have something but this is what we’re running across – an awful lot of. Newer Fords, the alarm is going off, and you can not program a key without this and the compatible software in here.

What else we got. Box is excellent. This looks like a flasher. This looks like stuff to reprogram. Again, this is just a quick unboxing. We’re gonna put this right into the field starting in the morning. So this is that kind of “late-at-night, got-it, wanted-to-unbox-it, show-it-off.” And, we’re going to play with it. Give me a couple of weeks and we’re going to have some in-depth programming of this. We’ll see what it can or can’t do. And we’re going to use this as our go-to-programmer. And then see how we do. We’re going to use the Chrysler Star – hopefully that’s in here. We have some stars cables anyway, but, we’re running across those Chrysler, Dodge, Ram with the star cable.

So, we’re going to give this a really good test starting in the morning. I’ll have some little updates as we go along. We’ll start seeing what it can or can’t do. So far, impressed. Let’s see what happens!

Open U Lock with a cordless grinder with a cutting wheel.

Open bike lock with a cordless grinder.

I use a Milwaukee Cordless Grinder with a cutting wheel to open most if not all Bike Locks. Just be careful where the sparks go, avoid flammable or plastics that can burn or pit. Wear Gloves and Safety glasses.


One of the best tools in the whole world is a cordless grinder with a cutting wheel. This saves my butt all the time. I could use a big pair of bolt cutters on this, but sometimes I find, when you use the bolt cutter, you can get a piece flying off and it could break a window or something or hurt somebody. I like this, you just have to be aware of the sparks will wreck your shirt. Also, you cannot be by anything flammable or anything plastic or anything glass. So just be really careful when the sparks shoot off of this thing. Usually, I aim the sparks so they go down, usually, it’s okay. So I am just going to cut off this inexpensive bike lock, I am going to use my cordless grinder. I always like to secure whatever I am cutting. I like to secure with a pair of vise grips. Now, wear your safety glasses, I always wear my gloves, just in case. Now, this is interesting. The battery is just a little tiny efficiency one. It is not big enough, not enough amperage, I guess to run the cordless grinder. So I am going to change my, swap my battery out. It’s the first time doing it with a little one. I just thought, “Oh, let’s give it a try.” Yes, look at that and look at, just sucking up the power on this. So I am going to just swap out the battery with a bigger one. I have heard about some people having some trouble with other tools. I have never had a problem with the drill. This is basically double. This is the bigger one. I have never had a problem using this. This is the first time using that. Let’s just swap it out real quick. Full power. And let’s finish it off. There we go. And remember this is hot hot hot. Don’t touch the ends, be careful you don’t burn off the bike. Yes, I could have picked this. It requires a special pick, it’s not that difficult, but I’m a for-profit locksmith. I am not going to make keys to this, it’s disposable. I think they paid 10 bucks for this. It costed more for the service call to get it off, but we didn’t destroy the bike. So, again, you could pick some of these, you could do whatever. My bottom line is I have to get this done fast and efficient and I just cut it off.

Top 3 Screwdrivers for Locksmiths | Mr. Locksmith Video

Top 3 Screwdrivers for Locksmiths | Mr. Locksmith Video

For further information go to Mr. Locksmith Vancouver West

My top 3 Screwdrivers

Let us talk about three of the must have tools you have to have for your locksmith kit. Every one locksmith must have these three tools: Megapro set, Hex set, and the Tamperproof kit.

The Megapro set

The Megapro set – this is the original and inside it it has the flatheads, the Robinsons, the Phillips and some torques. That is absolutely fantastic. It’s a go-to tool. It’s always there, it’s got the tools.

The next one on my kit – the Hex set.

The Hex set

The Hex set – It’s got all the basic or the most popular sizes in it. You have to have this  screwdriver if you’re a locksmith because so many times you’ve misplaced your Allen keys. This is, a must have, fantastic tool. Especially we’re getting a lot of European made locks out there. you still need complete Allen key sets, but you can just grab this and 90% of the time, if not more, this will do the trick.

The other one is the Tamperproof kit.

The Tamperproof set

Tamperproof kit – This is the MegaPro. What it is, it’s for taking out the tamper-proof screws. It’s got all the most popular tamperproofs and torques an dthe flatheads with the holes inside. It is really, really cool.

So these are the three must have tools for everybody. You gotta have these in your locksmith kit. The original MegaPro, it’s got the most popular screws you’re going to run across every single day. The Hex, because you’re running across a lot of these in locks now, more and more all the time, this will probably, used 90% of the time, you’ll still need an Allen key set but it does the trick. And the Tamperproof. This will do for taking out those one way screws that are flatheads and it’s got the special bit for taking out the one way flatheads. It’s got the hex with the hole in it and the torques with the hole in it. Must have tools for the locksmith. For a beginner or a pro, this is a lifesaver. Have a good day. I hope you enjoyed watching this video.

For further information go to Mr. Locksmith Delta.

When you rent a car you usually give you two car keys/fobs crimped together on a metal wire. If you lose the keys you could be liable to replace not one but two keys and it could cost you $250-$700.

When I travel I usually have no tools, my Leather Man or Swiss Army knife (AirPort Security). A very simple method for breaking the crimped key chain wire is to just twist the two keys clockwise until either the cable or the crimp breaks.

Fast Facts Auto Book

 

One of my go-to books for making keys to cars and motorcycles is “2015 Edition FAST FACTS — 1965-2015 Auto’s and Cycles” by Robert G Sieveking from Sieveking Products Company. This is a great book. This is the 2015 version. Every two years, a new updated version comes out.

This is my go-to fast book when I’m talking to customers when I’m going out to the job, it has most if not all of the domestic automotive, five-ton trucks, highway trucks, and it also has extensive motorcycles. This is a fantastic book, I highly recommend it.

The “Helps Section” gives pointers and many specific transponder programming procedures that have been tested and proven in actual use. GM VATS system information, key progressions and special notes on a number of autos give you the benefit of nearly 40 years of “on the road” experience. The motorcycle index is the largest listing of 2-wheeled vehicles anywhere.

Fast Facts™ is the premier Locksmiths reference to foreign & domestic auto and motorcycle keys. Fast Facts™ is an encyclopedic listing of cars and motorcycles found in the North American Market from 1965 to present. In its 11th Edition (2010-15) the fast Facts™ book is a “Must-Have” item for all locksmiths that make keys for autos and motorcycles. Much expanded for 2015. There are now over 200 motorcycle key plates and 638 auto key plates. Many new or changed transponder Facts. The Index lists 3761 autos and over 1400 motorcycles.
Exclusive “Lay Flat” plastic spiral bound Desk Size is easier to use. When open, the book will not close like perfect bound books will do.
Fast Facts™ presents a Clear, Concise and Fully Indexed key making guide for autos and motorcycles. The NEW expanded motorcycle model index lists over 1400 motorcycle models, plus an additional 15 pages of Chinese and Korean motorcycles, scooters and handicap electric motorized chairs. Everything is at your fingertips. Fast Facts™ is clearly illustrated and fully indexed. Fast Facts contains more information than any other publication of its kind.

Mr. Locksmith MVP Pro Auto Key Programmer

 

My daily Auto Key Programmer is the HotWire and the MVP PRO Auto Key Programmer. I am on the unlimited token plan for both programmers. For the past 5+ years, I have been purchasing and testing “Offshore Auto Key Programmers.”

I have several Off Shore MVP clones. The price was so low, we keep on testing to see if any Off Shore Key Programmer could replace our MVP PRO Auto Key Programmer and other existing programmers.

The MVP Clones are poorly made and no consistency or reliability with the software.

One Off Shore clone will program Ford and Chrysler but not Honda. Another identical clone will do Honda but not some Fords.
Another clone may work on a Nissan, but no one unit will do everything. It’s just been a zero.

So we kept on buying these, kept on testing them. Our dongles would break. The units would break. They’d fall apart. The software was inconsistent.

However, we found one clone that consistently worked well with Honda reflashes, specifically the 1998-2002 Honda Preludes.

In the early day we were just trying to save tokens, and really did we save any money? No, the clones were not good. There’s no consistency.

But again, if you don’t try, you don’t know. And there are some good units out there that the Chinese are coming out with now that are making some of the good stuff look bad.

Some of the new offshore auto key programmers they are using their own software, their own designs, and they are not clones or scammer units. Some of the Off Shore Key Programmers actually seem to be getting there.

Well, they’re coming out with nice updates on them, so they are becoming consistent.

The thing is with everything, you could have an Offshore made, really good programmer, and now they have counterfeit units of that that are total garbage.

So why are some of these Auto Key Programmers $300 and the other unit’s $50? The $50 unit is a total clone and it’s a total piece of garbage. How do you know? You don’t. That’s the big problem.

One way to find out is if you read the automotive forums.

Talk to other Locksmiths and view our videos.

The various plugins quality was all over the map. Some very good forums on Facebook, KeyPro website, ClearStar, etc.

So far, again, we’ve talked about this before, our go-to units are the MVP Pro and Hotwire.

Mr. Locksmith Automotive is reviewing the Hot Wire Automotive Key Programmer. I absolutely love this product. It was one of the first programmers I bought. We use two major Automotive Key Programmer, the MVP Pro and we the Hot Wire.

Hot Wire Automotive Key Programmer is PC based. It goes through a box and it plugs into the OBDC unit. It’s the most idiot-proof key programmer you can find out there.

The interface is so simple you don’t even need to read the manual. All you do is pick out your year, make, and model and plug it in. Turn the key to run and hit enter. The interface is unbelievably good. I absolutely love this. For beginners or advanced automotive locksmiths.

The MVP Pro is the bleeding edge and can do more autos. However, the Hot Wire Automotive Key Programmer is easier, quicker to use but again we had the other day where the MVP Pro wouldn’t program a vehicle, the Hot Wire Automotive Key Programmer did it.

In the past, I had two Mustangs side by side, same year, same model. The Hot Wire would program one but wouldn’t program the other. The MVP Pro would program the other unit but wouldn’t program the one that the Hot Wire would do. That’s a constant battle with cars. It happens.

We are making keys to cars every single day. This is what we find and we can’t do without two programmers. Nobody can.

That is why we keep on trying some of the offshore versions just to see how they go. We’re always evaluating them.

Again, if you are starting out and you’re coming into a good standard unit, this is the way to go. It’s simple, it’s easy, it’s to the point, and you can’t make a mistake. You really cannot make a mistake.

I love the tablet-based Hot Wire because it’s all in one unit.

We are subscription based on one of our Hot Wires and one we have purchased the software for the most popular autos.

No matter what anybody says, we haven’t found one key programmer that does everything.

If the manufacturer’s want to disagree, I’m waiting for that holy grail. That one machine.
