Car Key Replacement Service
Upon arrival, our specialist will proceed by decoding the lock and cutting a test blade for your vehicle. Once the blade has been tested on your door locks and ignition, he then will continue with programming the transponder chip (which allows you to start the vehicle) and the remote (if necessary). Automotive manufacturers have various types of ignitions and key options for their vehicles, which means the labor involved in programming and the cost of parts may vary.

Frequently Asked Questions – Car Keys
Question: What information does Get Locksmith need to make a new key?
Answer: To ensure your initial call goes as efficiently as possible, please be ready to inform our dispatchers with the following:
- Make, Model, and Year of the vehicle
- The type of key you misplaced, whether it was a regular transponder key (no remote), remote key, or proximity key (Push-to-Start).
- If you have an existing key, but it will not start the vehicle, provide us with any information that may assist us. This includes; when was the last time you were able to start the vehicle? Was there any damage to the key as a result of dropping on the floor or coming into contact with water?
Question: If I find my old key or if my old key was stolen, would it still work once I am provided with a new key?
Answer: In most instances, your original key will not work due to the programming procedure involved with producing a replacement key. This is also a safety measure in prevention of theft in case a stranger recovers your key and tries to start your vehicle. In the event that you do find your old key, we may reprogram it to the vehicle for an additional cost.
