sorry but you cant code keys with this machine unless you have got the old 4 digit immobilizer code the dealer will only have a 7 digit code that they use

It is possible to use the 1553 to code keys but as mentioned previously you would need the 4 digit SKC for the immobilizer login, the dealers do not have acsess to either the 4 digit or the encrypted later 7 digit codes as it is all done online via the encrypted GEKO system.
There are other options available for obtaining the SKC codes but i dont know if this is the place to mention them? :confused:
