How to Get a Replacement Car Key
Let’s face it, when you lose your car keys, it is extremely frustrating and very inconvenient. What should you do? Obviously, look for them. However, if you can’t find them, you need to get a replacement car key.
Replacing a key is a hassle sometimes, depending on the type of key you have. When you go to find a replacement, if you don’t know where to look, you may not find one easily. Whatever the reasoning is that you need a new key, it is essential that you have a key that works for your car. You know what’s going to happen; you are going to find the key in an obvious place and kick yourself later. However, having a spare may prevent the issue from occurring in the future.
When Should You Replace a Key?
There are two main reasons why you should replace a key. The first is because you lost it and cannot find it. It is frustrating, But unless you dropped it in the grand canyon, there is always a chance you will find it. Having a spare key will eliminate the urgency of having to get a replacement, giving you more time to find the lost key. However, you will eventually want to replace it.
The second primary reason why people will have their key replaced is that it isn’t functioning. Whether it is worn down to an unusable point or it is bent/broke, it is time to replace it. You will notice that the key will stop being as effective at opening doors or starting the vehicle. It is inconvenient and agitating when it happens. Some high-tech keys need to be laser-etched. While many other keys have to have a code inserted into them so the car will respond. Damaging these keys can be costly. If you have an issue with the remote not working, but the key works fine, then check the battery first before getting a replacement.
Getting a Replacement Key in a Few Steps
The first thing you want to do when you are going to get a replacement key is to retrieve the VIN from your vehicle’s dashboard or the bay of the engine. Make sure to note the model, make, and year of your vehicle. If you can’t find the VIN, then you can locate it on the title and/or insurance paperwork.
- Call AZ Car Keys Or A Locksmith
The older the car, the easier it will likely be to replace the key. This is especially true if the car is made by a non-luxury manufacturer. Your local locksmith may solve the problem all on their own. To top it all off, you could save a ton of money with locksmiths as opposed to dealerships.
The process may be more excruciating for a modern car key. A local locksmith may not be able to recreate the complex shape of the key. It could also need to be programmed in order to work. While some digital programming replacement keys are doable by locksmiths, they most likely are unable to imitate a code laser-etched into the key itself.
- Using The Dealer
While we say get the key made by a locksmith, you want to take it to the dealership to have it programmed. This is only if you can’t have it programmed by the locksmith. If the locksmith can program it too, you will probably save more money.
In the event that the key is too complex for a locksmith, then you will have to go to the auto dealer and purchase a new key. The process of ordering the key could take up to two weeks, but your warranty may cover the cost. Make sure to check at the auto dealer you bought the vehicle from. Many dealerships may offer a discount to keep their customer happy.
- Compare Reliability and Price
Nowadays, a lot of cars come with keyless entry devices. To be truthful, keys barely look like keys anymore. If you were to break one of these keys, then you have to order a new one. Sure, you can get a cheap one online, but you are getting what you pay for. It is a safer bet to go through the dealership for your replacement. Certain keyless entry devices you are able to program yourself. Others have to be programmed by a professional. Some high-end manufacturers will program the key at the factory and then send it to the customer.
When you need a car key replacement, make sure you are trying locksmiths first. You could save a ton of money and some stress. However, safety is important. Sometimes it is more secure to have your key replaced by the dealership. Make sure to research options and prices to avoid any unnecessary stress doesn’t arise.
