Standard Mechanical Key

The ignition cylinder system is used with these conventional car keys. A locksmith will either immediately produce a new key for you if you forget your keys and have no backup, or they will replace the ignition lock cylinder. When you find yourself in this circumstance, get in touch with an expert locksmith for quick and effective key replacement services.

Keyless Entry Remote

These mechanical keys have security add-ons, also referred to as key fobs. Although your vehicle can be locked and unlocked using this auto-lock technology, it still needs a real key to start. You can still operate your car using the mechanical key if you lose your key fob. Fob replacement is available through dealerships, vehicle parts shops, and online. You can also get assistance from a qualified locksmith in locating and programming a dependable, affordable fob.

Key Fob and Key Combo

These locks, as opposed to keyless entry remotes, combine a key fob and a spring-loaded key into a practical mechanism that can be used to lock, unlock, and start the vehicle. A replacement fob and key are available at a dealership or online.

Transponder Key

Transponders are ignition keys with a plastic head and a computer chip within them. This key technology connects your car and key wirelessly to function. Without a backup transponder key, you’ll have to tow your car to the dealer to have ownership confirmed. After that, you’ll buy a new key that will be electronically associated with your vehicle.
