need ignition barrel for vito 109 do they have to to be reprogrammed, if not will second hand one do, do i have to get new key fob.
Hello and Welcome..

My name is ***** ***** Im happy to advise..

If you are just replacing the ign barrel - and key - then no it doesn't need to be programmed.

If you are replacing the fob - then it will... or if you have the version where the fob is a part of the key , ( as some are ) then you will... If its just the blade ( and some blades will swap over -on the key FOB type ) , then you don't need programming. In the "no programming" cases - then yes a 2nd hand one will do.

Im very pleased to have helped you - Do let me know if you need anything more --
