When the ignition key is turned to OFF, the immobilizer inhibits engine operation.

If the other key does not work out either, contact the Ducati Service network.

Attention Strong impacts could damage the electronic components inside the key. During the procedure always use the same key. Using different keys may prevent the system from acknowledging the code of the inserted key.

Duplicate keys

If you need any duplicate keys, contact the Ducati Service network with all the keys you have left.

The Ducati Service Center will program all the new keys as well as any keys you already have.

You may be asked to provide proof that you are the legitimate owner of the motorcycle.

The codes of any keys not submitted will be wiped off from the memory to make those keys unserviceable in case they have been lost.

Note If the motorcycle owner changes, it is necessary that the new owner is given all keys.

  4. To confirm the number, press the button (4);
