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. Your car dealer can do this, but it will cost you. Our verified local car locksmith pros have the training expertise to program your key's remote at a much lower cost, plus we will come to you with the right tools and right equipment to eliminate any further hassle so you can get back on the road.
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 security system. If this chip isn't programmed, you will not be able to start your car. Although, the key will turn in the ignition switch. Our car locksmiths can program the transponder chip inside your key so it works with your car's alarm system. While on-site, we can make you an extra key at a fraction of the cost. Car owners love that 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 local locksmith for a reasonable cost. Newer cars normally have push-to-start ignitions and no ignition cylinder. You can avoid taking your damaged ignition to a dealership, as they may try to unnecessarily replace your entire ignition system, security systems, and ignition coil. First, let one of our locksmiths give you helpful advice and a quote. Call today!
Just as most modern cars have transponder keys, most keys are also laser cut. Laser cutting provides much greater security than a typical standard cut car key. These keys also require special equipment to cut. Our local locksmiths can quickly and easily make these high-security car keys for you at a fair price. Plus, our auto locksmith pros will test the key blade to make sure they work properly before processing payment and leaving the job site.
A car door lock often suffers a lot of wear and tear, but when one breaks it's not a good idea to try to fix it yourself. Modern door locks are complex and you're likely to damage the lock or your car in the attempt. Sometimes your car door locks simply need some lubrication instead of expensive repair services. Be wary of a locksmith who tries to immediately replace the lock in order to upcharge you. A trustworthy auto locksmith will make an honest attempt to fix a damaged lock before replacing it completely.
Even if you've lost all your car keys (or had them stolen), our local locksmiths can still make you new ones either by using your car manufacturer's key code or by using specialized tools to analyze your car's locks. We can replace stolen keys, broken keys, old keys, basic car keys, emergency keys, transponder keys, remote key fobs, and keyless entry systems. Making a set of new car keys is quick, simple, and affordable.

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, or pin tumblers, or make the problem worse by pushing the key further into the lock.
