Not all keys work the same, whilst nearly all vehicle keys will be coded to disable a factory fitted immobilizer, some will have added features such as remote locking. Some newer car keys may even slot into the dash or operate from your pocket without you having to do anything other than press a button in the car. The style and type of replacement car key required will effect how the key is produced and how long it will take to program.
We can cut keys for Ford, Audi, Vauxhall, BMW, Fiat and almost all other makes of cars and vans.
If you are locked out of your vehicle upon arriving at your car we will first gain entry, with no damage. It may be necessary to remove a lock to see how we need to cut the key and the correct replacement car keys will be cut and chipped with the appropriate transponder for the vehicle. On some cars we can simply plug in a diagnostic tester and talk to your car to associate the new key whilst on more sophisticated cars it may be necessary to extract codes through advanced diagnostic code challenging. Most replacement car keys can be produced and fully coded within as little as 30 minutes or less.
