I have an 08 and two active FOB's.  Instead of removing the chip for cloning, would simply removing the FOB battery (easy to do on my FOB's) accomplish the same thing and turn off the active portion of the FOB? :beerchug:
Depends on the cloning machine used. The chips have a limited range, so the machine might not be able to read the chip if you can’t get it close enough to the antenna inside the machine.

on the cloning machine the guy that did mine used, all he did was place the active fob close to the reader and voila, it caught the code!

For those in Toronto, Canada, let me know and I can share the guys info with you. He's awesome.
Best,

shows the "well" the chipset sits in on that model, other machines made by the same company (earlier models) simply have a "spot" on the top where the chipset is laid on...for read/write connectivity.
