If you have a key or key fob with remote control buttons on it for popping the trunk, for instance, then you have a remote head key. Like plain transponder keys, these need to be programmed to communicate correctly with your car. You car dealer can do this, but it will cost you. Our verified local car key locksmiths have the expertise to program your key’s remote at a much lower cost, plus we will come to you.

Transponder Key Programming

Unless your car is very old, you likely have a transponder key, which contains a chip in the head of the key that is programmed to communicate with your car. If this chip isn’t programmed, you will not be able to start your car. Our locksmiths can program the transponder chip inside your key so it works with your car. We can also replace your transponder key or the battery inside it, if it’s stopped working.

Car ignitions often have heavy wear and tear on them from years of use. Many times a damaged ignition simply requires a rekey, which can be performed by a trained locksmith for a reasonable cost.

Broken Key Removal

Car keys wear down over time. A worn car key can sometimes break off in the car door lock or the ignition cylinder, leaving a piece behind. While you can try to remove the piece of key yourself, it’s easy to damage the door lock, ignition, pin tumblers, or make the problem worse by pushing the key further into the lock. A qualified locksmith for cars will have the tools and experience to extract the broken key and make you a new one so you can get on with your day.
