The problem with electronic car keys

We have all had that moment of panic when we go to look for our car key, and to our dismay find out that it’s not where we had first thought. Before 1990, this wasn't really that big of a deal. Most local places like Ace Hardware or The Home Depot had ways to cheaply and quickly duplicate keys. If all else failed, you could also go to the dealership and have a duplicate created. However, with auto theft on the rise, keys are now more technologically advanced. It can be a pain to get it replaced, and also quite expensive. To give you a better idea, here’s a list of different keys and what they might run you should you end up needing one in the future. Keep in mind that these are only estimates, and the actual price may vary by where you live the kind of car you drive, etc.

 

Simple Keys and FOB

Simple car keys are both quickly and inexpensively replaced. Any regular locksmith or home improvement store should be able to replace it for as low as $3 in a lot of cases. There is no model specific information needed. Just head on in and get it taken care of! If you absolutely feel it necessary to have the emblem of the car manufacturer on the key, you can always go to the dealership, however prepare to pay a premium price for this.

If you lose the fob, or key-less entry as some people call it, the dealership will usually charge you upwards of $100 to replace it. If it has to be programmed you might run into some labor costs for the dealership to do this for you. If you want to save some money, look online for cheap generic key fobs, and also for instructions on how to do so. It’s not always easy, but sometimes it can even be found in the owner’s manual.

Later in the 90’s, vehicles started coming equipped with transponder keys. All you need to know is that this key contains a chip in the head of the key that sends a signal to the vehicle telling it whether or not this is the correct key. If it doesn't match, the car will not start. There are multiple variations of these types of keys, so the best bet is to consult with the dealership on how to go about replacing these, and get a price quote. Once you've done this, call your local locksmith and see if they are able to do it cheaper, which they usually are since they have the equipment and don’t charge the dealer premium. Expect to pay somewhere in the ballpark of $200 if you need a replacement for these types of keys. You can also order the basic key devoid of the transmitter, which will come in handy should you ever lock your keys in your car, but it will not start the car.

We strongly suggest that you consider investing in a spare key sooner than later, as it is much easier to bargain shop and operate from a position of power, rather than it being an emergency that you have to remedy the same day! The consequences can be quite annoying, as if you lose all the keys to your vehicle, you’ll be forced to have it towed to a dealership where it can be as high as $1,000 to get the locks on your vehicle swapped out.

"I can't believe it; this is the first time I have had locksets re-keyed where the new keys work as good or better than brand new sets you buy at HD or Lowes. Normally remade keys don't work well, but yours are ALL perfect." - Chris B.
