Replacing your lost car key with a new one through a local car dealership is too costly. Most people in the High Desert region believe that whenever they lose a key they have to call a local car dealership or some high-end hardware store to simply cut a new key into their lock. Calling a locksmith isn’t always your best option. While it is possible to purchase a key from a local shop, if you are like many of us, that isn’t an option for us.
Sometimes the only option is to buy a new spare key for our vehicle. While it is nice to know that we can easily replace a lost car key ourselves, it is better to take advantage of the services and expertise of a reliable locksmith. If you’re like most people in this part of the world, you’ve probably thought that you should avoid any type of automotive repairs whenever possible.
When it comes to Lost Car Key Replacement, we are pleased to report that many of the leading automotive locksmiths in California offer emergency aftermarket service. We’ve had many customers reach out to us at local automotive shops or locksmiths around the Valley and tell us their stories. One customer told us that he called a local locksmith to have his car password reset. The locksmith told him that he needed to bring his car key to the shop in order to have his security bypassed, and he didn’t have a spare key. Luckily for this customer, another locksmith was able to help him out and provide a brand new key within just a few minutes.
Other customers have told us that they have found local locksmiths that specialize in transponder recovery. These services typically involve recovering lost car keys from vehicle transponders installed in new cars. The process is easy: The customer drives his car into the local locksmith shop, and the technician with the help of his staff will disarm the vehicle using a special key that has been programmed to disarm the transponder. Once the lock is disabled, the technician will then replace the transponder so that the car is operational again.
Many of our customers have also had success in recovering their car keys by having them reset with the help of a professional. Many local locksmiths will sell a transponder key for a set fee. If a customer only needs to reset one or two transponders, he can contact the locksmith to purchase a transponder key blank for the reset. This is especially helpful for customers who don’t know how to change the pins on the back of the transponder key. It’s also helpful for people who have accidentally deleted their vehicle’s security pin.
Lost car keys can often be frustrating, but it is important to remember that they can sometimes be easily replaced. Locksmiths are trained professionals who can make the process as simple as possible. For more information, contact your local locksmith today.
