San Diego Lock & Locksmith New Car Keys San Diego, CA
Did you lose or misplace your old car keys? Or did they just break? When you need new car keys made, you have a couple of choices: you can contact your car dealer (or manufacturer) or you can get in touch with San Diego Lock & Locksmith. Dealers are notorious for taking their own sweet time about sending you replacement keys, not to mention charging extravagant amounts for them. Our professionals, on the other hand, will make you new ones in a short span of time and at an affordable price.
All types of keys made
What kind of new car keys can we craft? We can make keys for all popular vehicle types and models, including trucks, cars, and vans. There are 3 types of keys we can craft, including:
- Standard: Standard versions are found on cars that were manufactured over two decades ago. These are cheap to make and we can craft them for you in a matter of minutes.
- Smart keys: These have a computer programmed chip embedded in the fob at the end. Also called as transponder keys – are difficult to make, not to mention expensive.
- Keys with remote fob: We can also make new car keys – both regular and smart – that have a remote attached at the end.
Why are they expensive?
Why are smart or transponder keys expensive? They require special computerized machinery to make, which is expensive and usually only available with the car dealer and manufacturer. Every car key also has to be carefully programmed to work with your car’s engine control unit (ECU). If the key contains the wrong code, then your vehicle won’t start. Getting a new car key from us is much cheaper from us as compared to your dealer.
Key programming services
Apart from making you new car keys , we can also reprogram your old ones. What does reprogramming involve? If your old key was damaged in some way, or if the plastic fob fell off, we can install a new plastic fob on it and reprogram it to work with your vehicle. We can also get a faulty remote to work with your car.
