What data does he program into the transponder in the keys? Does he copy it from one of your other keys? If so they will both work for a short time, but with the rolling code, the transponder for the immobiliser in one will stop working if you use the other a few times.
I'm not saying it's impossible to program a new key, but copying another key doesn't work, for the immobiliser transponder part of it.

Finally I found one which was recommended by the other locksmiths, I think the guy's name is John but they are in Ferndown in Dorset.....
http://wellheeledferndown.co.uk/index.php he knew exactly what to do and had the right machine to do it.
I had 2 new blades cut and they worked first time (no cutting through the key and no miss-shaped cut) the guy is a genius. give em a call!
Cost was only Ã‚Â£7.50 each blade.
They also do a re-programing for Ã‚Â£70.00.
