Car Key Replacement Process
Whether you've lost or broken your key, it's important to know how to replace it. A lost or damaged key can be very stressful, especially if you need to get somewhere that requires a car. However, it's not difficult to replace your keys with the right steps taken. All you need is a replacement key and someone who can cut it for you.
When you call a locksmith, they will make sure that you're the owner of the car first by verifying ownership information. They'll ask for your name and address, as well as other details like your vehicle identification number (VIN). If all goes well, an agreeable locksmith should be able to come out and unlock your car for you within an hour or two. A locksmith can make a new key in one of two ways: reverse engineering or picking.
Reverse engineering is the most common method and involves using a blank key to cut the new key. A locksmith will look at your old key and measure its thickness, length, shape, and other features to get the code for your car. Then he’ll use a machine to cut the new key based on that code so it fits perfectly in your ignition lock.
If you want to avoid having these steps reversed, you can also opt for picking, a process that allows a locksmith to open your ignition without cutting anything at all! For example, if you have an automatic car door but no remote control and only one set of keys, then there may be some extra space between them within which we can insert our little device called a “pick gun” and let ourselves into your car without needing any other tools.
If your car has an immobilizer system, you must have a key made with a transponder chip inside. The transponder chip enables the car to start. This means that if you lose your keys, you will need to get them replaced. The immobilizer system is located in the ignition and/or steering column of your vehicle. When you turn on the ignition, it sends an electronic signal to the engine control unit (ECU) to start up your car. The ECU then checks for this signal before sending power through all systems so they can operate normally. If no signal is detected by these two devices, nothing happens and lights will turn red or flash on your dashboard as a warning message for potential damage or breakdowns.
If you ever lost or locked your keys, don't attempt to break in. Call a locksmith instead. A locksmith can get you into your car without breaking the lock. When you break into your car, the risk is high that you could damage the lock or keyhole in the process. This means that when it comes time to use your keys again, they may not work properly, which could mean an expensive visit to the mechanic. Locksmiths use special tools called slim jims that slide between the door frame and door jam so they can open it from the inside. This means that your current lock isn't damaged and doesn't need to be replaced.
