Helpful Things To Know When Looking For Replacement Car Keys

Car key replacement servicesOne of the first things you should start with is writing down your car's unique Vehicle Identification Number or VIN. This is a number made of 17 digits and it is valid for vehicles manufactured after 1981. Find this number on the dashboard on the driver's side. Simply look through the window or check out the engine block or the rear wheel for it. It is also possible to find the number inside the car's trunk or right on the door jam. Some models will have the VIN written down on the space between the windshield washers and the carburetor. For faster access to this number, you can simply take a look at the vehicle's insurance information, as the VIN is printed on the top left-hand corner of the pages.

Once you have found the VIN and written it down, you will need to move on to the exact brand, make and model for your car. No matter if you plan on personally purchasing a new set of keys for your car or you wish to hire an expert car key replacement locksmith for it, you will also need to make use of this information.

Broken Electric Key Services

A faulty electric key can either benefit from expert key duplication services, battery replacement or reprogramming. We recommend you to let the key rest for a little while before you try to use it again. Sometimes, high temperatures or moisture could affect the function of the key and prevent it from working normally.  By simply unscrewing the Philips screw found at the back of the key fob, the old battery can be removed and the new one can be easily fitted. Also, changing the battery on your car could cause the keys to stop working temporarily and a reset may be required. Plus, a dying car battery could also be the culprit for a faulty key fob.   

If this does not work, you could try to reset all of your car keys.  The exact instructions for this can be found in the car's manual. If you no longer have the manual or you simply do not have the time or the skills to reset the keys on your own, we can assist you on the spot.
