Car Key Replacements by Autokeys Auto Locksmiths

Our mobile vehicle locksmiths offer speedy roadside assistance for lost and broken car keys. We will have your car open and replacement keys made in the shortest possible time, with no damage to your vehicle. Autokeys uses latest technology to provide you with a new car key that is programmed correctly to your car. We even come to you at your convenience. We hold blank keys to suit most vehicles.

It is expensive to replace the car key for newer model vehicles. Some dealerships charge £1000 and up to replace a key not just the key but the ECU (engine control  unit) and immobiliser. The expense is not from cutting the car key, but from programming the electronic chip in your vehicle's key. If you have a perfectly cut key without the programming for the chip, you can put it in the ignition and turn the car key but the car's engine will not start, and in most cases not even turn over.

A more economical option is to buy your replacement car keys from a Autokeys. They have the same key programmer as the dealership but will charge up to half the price to replace your key. As with a car dealership, the most important part of getting your car key replaced is making sure the chip inside the key is programmed properly. An important part of programming the chip in your car key is giving the make, model, and VIN number of the vehicle to the person programming your keys. If you have the security card it may be cheaper.

Autokeys can cater for any problems you are facing. Please contact us if you need any of these or any other services.
