As part of the Right to Repair Initiative we are able to cut and program car keys and remotes. We have equipment for most of the major brands. We can do some models as new as 2016! Our keys and remotes are much more affordable than the Dealers. On average you can save between 30 and 70 percent over what the dealers charge. We're upfront with our prices, they always include cutting and programming! Fill out the form at the bottom or call us and we'll give you a price.
What if I Lost All my Keys?
A spare key is the cheapest and most convent alternative to loosing all your keys. You can get it made at your convenience (we're open 7 days a week) and its cheaper and easier. But if you happen to find yourself in that situation where you have no keys we can still help. If you go to a dealer they will make you tow your car in and do it at there convenience. (could be days) we can be there in an hour or less and cost less as well. Call us with your Make, Model and Year and We'll give you a price and how quick we can get out there.
But what even is a Transponder and why do i need it in my Key?
A Transponder is an anti-theft device used in modern cars to prevent hot wiring. Your car has an immobilizer ring around the ignition which sends out an electromagnetic pulse to your key in the form of a number (lets say 25) the transponder in your key has an equation it runs the number through ( lets say it multiplies it by 4) then the number is shot back to the car (100). The car is satisfied and starts. If the number is wrong or there is no number the car refuses to start. So without the correct transponder chip you cannot start your car.
What if my key or remote is broken?
We repair all different types of keys and remotes. Most repairs fall between $8 and $60. They can be repaired while you wait (depending on whats wrong) or you can leave them with us and we'll fix it within a day or so. We can fix about 80% of the remotes we receive and warranty the repair for one year. They very rarely come back. We don't charge anything for looking at them. If they don't end up working you don't have to pay either. So there's no risk.
What if i want a remote but don't have one?
If your car has central locking (if you can lock all the doors from a switch on the drivers door) then chances are you can get a remote. we have over 100 remotes in stock so chances we have one for your car, or we can get one.
Even if I only have a valet key?
Sure, that's no problem at all. We can cut you a master key. We do it at least twice a week.
If my key does not work all that well will a copy help?
Unfortunately no, when you copy a paper with a coffee stain on it, it will still come out with the stain, the same goes for keys. We can however code cut you a key back to the manufactures original specifications . If that does not help we have new ignitions in stock we key them to the same as your original key (so it will still work in your door) and provide a new working key (if your car requires a chip we will carefully remove it from your old key and insert it in your new one).
Will you cut or program keys i buy online?
We don't, there is a risk of the key or remote not working, potentially damaging your car or our equipment. If you brought your own beef to a restaurant they cook it and you get food poisoning who is to blame? Some keys look identical but are completely different, an NI02 and an NI04 look identical, but if you get them mixed up and get the wrong one your car will not start a day later. To avoid any problems, cars not working, keys leaving you stranded, or any other problems we only use keys that come from suppliers we trust. We stand behind our keys and warranty them for one year with receipt.
Will you have my key in stock?
We have over one hundred keys and remotes in stock so chances are we have yours. If we don't we can always special order one for you. a good general rule is if you see a bunch of your cars all over the place we probably have your key in stock. If your car is really cool but you have never seen another one, we may have to special order that one. Call us or fill out the form and we'll let you know for sure.
