There are many of us that are savvy enough to have a spare key handy, but what if you are away on holiday and the spare keys are at home? If you can’t find your keys and don’t have spare keys; you’ll be looking at an expensive cost to replace them . This cost is not unusual for many manufacturers, but when you’re on a tight budget it can be quite overwhelming.
Keys used to be a simple metal blank, which was cut into the correct shape to suit its matching ignition slot; and to operate the unique lock mechanism of a car’s door. These days many cars still use an ignition slot, but most keys incorporate a transponder; that communicates with a vehicle’s immobilizer unit and engine control unit (ECU); to allow the engine to start. This security measure can also come in the form of a key-less entry and start function. Then take into consideration if the key functionality includes remote opening of the doors. All reasons why keys are so expensive to replace.

Times are tough, we want to save you money and keep you driving; we cannot decrease the price of fuel, we cannot make your car use less fuel. What we can do is help you keep the most important; and often neglected part of your car in tip top shape. Most of us neglect our keys until it stops working or worse until we lose them.

Our car locksmiths can read the signal/code sent out by a vehicle key and then can clone a key by writing this code; onto the chip of a blank transponder key using an electronic key-cloning machine. The key will still need to be cut to fit the ignition slot, doors and trunk. Once the car’s ECU sees the duplicate transponder key as the original key; it allows the engine to start. Unfortunately, if you own a higher security vehicles this is not always possible. In this case a special programming machine extracts the code from the vehicle’s electronic modules . Fob can be a complicated process to duplicate the signal for operating the remote buttons on the key; and this leads to an increase in the cost.
