2012, key question?

I have a 2012 tucson, according to information found in the manual, not all of the tucsons came wtih the imobilizer(requires the fancy key wtih a chip init).
The manual sows two different styles of keys, but does not distinguish which is which.

I'd like to add a remote start (I already have the unit), but I'm not sure if I need to get a bypass module (and possibly another key) for it or not.

So, does anyone know what the imobilizer keys look like? Or, how to tell if my key/tucson has the imobilizer or not?

Thaks,
Keith

Re: 2012, key question?

None of the US spec Tucson's have an immobilizer key. You just have a regular key.

Also, Hyundai does make a remote start for the Tucson. You might want to look into that. We've had to remove several remote start systems at our dealership for the new Hyundai's because the aftermarket ones hack into too much of the harness. The Hyundai system is almost completely plug and play. They are a little on the pricey side though. List just for the kit is $351. I'll sell you one for $300 if you want to try to install it yourself.
