It can happen to the best of us. Those that are the most organized people in the world that double-check everything before leaving the house. That dreaded moment when you realize the car doors are locked, and you cannot find the keys anywhere.
You check in your safe or other secret storage location and notice that the key you lost was your spare! That means you have no way to get into your car.
First of all, there’s no need to panic as there’s a simple way to handle this situation, and never any need to cause additional stress in your life. You may even have the keys but the car locks are not responding anymore as well. These are all easy to resolve and there are a few different ways to go about it.
What it isn’t
First of all, it’s important to note that this is not going to be a duplicate car key, as a duplicate requires you to have at least one copy. This will end up being a completely new coded key for your car.
That means, on the off chance you seem to have found your lost keys, there’s a good chance that those keys will no longer work properly due to the reprogramming. Consider immediately getting a spare set with your new car key origination, so that you have that backup ready just in case it happens again.
What is needed
First of all, since we at 84locksmith are a professional locksmithing company that wants to service you, we’ll need to properly verify that you are the owner of the car. Please understand that we need to take a look at your driver’s license and other proof of ownership documents such as your vehicle registration. Once we confirmed we can continue along to make your key.
Then it’s all about making your newly programmed keys. We use the latest technology with these types of automotive car locks and can make new keys with just the VIN number as it will give us all the information about your specific car as knowing the make, model and year will ensure we have the appropriate equipment to cut your new keys.
We can also make new keys by decoding the door or ignition lock cylinder in case we need an alternative way to make your new keys.
