How Does car key replacement work?

Car Keys are complicated pieces of technology. every car key made after 1995 contains a transponder.  When the key is inserted into the ignition the vehicle needs to receive a valid signal from a transponder before the car will start.  If you have lost all the keys to your car the process we usually use to make you a working key is as follows:

  1. We decode your vehicle lock to make a key blade that works to unlock your car
  2. We use advanced diagnostic equipment to read the vehicles engine control unit (ECU).
  3. With this information we program a new transponder that can start the car.

We keep the vast majority of key blades, transponders and remotes in stock which means we are able to come to you and provide you with a replacement car key the same day.

Why not go straight to the main dealer?

If you’ve lost all your keys, or need a spare key, going to your main dealer is always an option. However using main dealers will almost always be a far more expensive option. If you’ve lost all your keys the car will need to be towed to the main dealership which will cost £100+ before you’ve even started.  Once at the dealership they will need to order your keys which could take up to 7 days. Depending on the vehicle type the cost for programming a replacement key can be anything from £150 to £1200 (yes £1200!).  As we can come to you straight away and make you a working key on site for a fraction of the price, it’s obvious what the smart choice is!

    We used this company to gain access to my elderly mothers house after she had misplaced her keys. Alex came out within an hour of calling and was able to gain access without any damage to the door. Painless, fast professional service, would defiantly recommend. Thank you so much.

    I called Alex on a Saturday of a Bank Holiday weekend to help with an issue with my UPVC backdoor. Alex was honest, reliable, professional and kept me updated throughout the time that he worked to fix the issue. Alex needed a specific (unique) part to fix the door and despite most suppliers being closed, Alex managed to find a supplier that was still open and then drove to obtain the part. If you are having any issues with your locks/doors/windows, then look no further than 'Key Trouble', thank you Alex!
