Everyone needs a spare car key, but there are days you will be caught without one. If you lose your car key and do not have an extra one, there’s no need to panic. We can assist you, but you need to stay calm and collect as much information as possible.
A while ago, it was easy when you lose your auto key. Today, due to advances in technology, key devices are no longer universal, and when you lose yours, you need to replace the same key you had. The first step is to understand the key you had before calling us at (347) 770-5525. Lost key? Do not worry.
Below are some of the most common modern auto key systems:
Most modern cars have a transponder key. It is a programmed key that works with your car’s keyless entry remote. If your vehicle was produced after the ’90s, you likely access it through transponder car keys.
Unlike the traditional key, the transponder pairs the car and the key so that no other transponder can access your vehicle. This way, if you ever lose your transponder, you can only seek assistance from an auto locksmith and not from drivers of the same car model. While this makes your car secure, it makes it challenging for you when you lose your key. But we can help you.
These keys are still common with car models from the ’90s. They are easy to replace and duplicate. If you lose one of these, you are lucky because the replacement process is fast and inexpensive. But the keys are not as secure as the other two keys above.
These keys do not pair with the internal electronics of your car. If you ever lose it, it becomes so easy for you to replace them.
A key fob is also so standard. They mostly come paired with transponders. Most automakers have stopped using transponder keys in the past few years and are now using keyless entry remotes. The advantage of these fobs is that they are in constant communication with your car, and this makes it easy for you to access the vehicle at any time.
While the key fob is more secure than the standard key, the key fob replacement process is more complicated and expensive than replacing a traditional key. If you lose your key fob, call us today, and we will help.
