Default My Key ??

Hi everyone trust you are all well and safe.
I have another question re my car , the speed limiter on my car is set at 80mph and I want to turn that off so I read up about it an apparently you do it thru "My Key " settings ??
It says put in the Adminstration Key ??/ what the hell is that is that your normal ignition key ? Anyway I put in my key and bring up "my key" display on the dash but that is all it will let me do I cant seem to go any further , am I doing something wrong or do I need another type of key ??
Sorry to sound a bit thick but just cant seem to sort this out.
Someone told me I have to take it to a tune shop and get them to do it ??

Any help appreciated guys cheers

Do you have 2 (or more) keys? One of those is the admin key and one is the "my key" which has the limiter on it. The admin key will not have limits. When you check the center read out it will tell you how many keys are programmed to the car, and what their status is.

If you only have one key then you have the "my key" and you can't change it without the admin key. In that case all you can do is go to the dealer to get your key reprogrammed.
