LARA started out life as Lishi Assistant but has
grown far beyond this now incorporating other tools such as Determinators
AccuReaders as well as Transponder Chip and some Eeprom information also. Including pictures.
LARA is firstly a notepad to record the decoded cuts of a car lock when
decoded by a variety of tools. As you are decoding your lock with your
Lishi 2 in 1 or Determinator tools or any other automotive reading
tool, you can enter the cuts into LARA. LARA will suggest which wafers
are in the door lock for you. Once finished in many cases you can run
your bitting through Blackhawk’s Fill Online if you have an account
with them whilst still standing at the vehicle door. Or of course
Instacode or similar code software to verify you have a valid code.
There is quite a lot of information that LARA has to help you along
your way to making keys to that vehicle, such as :
☆ Vehicle make and general model information
☆ Code series used
☆ What wafers are likely to be in the door lock.
☆ Code rules which can help to ensure you are decoding each lock
☆ Tris Calculator (Hex to Tris).
Lara now comes with the decoder you have always enjoyed as
well as by subscription you can use LARA Plus .

experience or have verified to me. I do not just look up books and add
random data, so you will not find every vehicle in the world. At the

information I have been able to verify. style=”font-weight: bold;”>
