Making Your New Car Key...
A new car key can be made, even with no copy of the previous one. If your car keys are lost or stolen, no need to worry, Southlake-Locksmith will cut you a new car key right away. Once verification of the owner of the vehicle is established, a locksmith can begin cutting a key from a key blank. The way we make the same exact copy of the previous key is by getting the correct key cuts for the vehicle. Key cuts can be obtained through a key code from the car manufacturer. The majority of the time we get the key code by the cars VIN, Vehicle Identification Number. This is the most common method to get the correct cuts although, sometimes, it can be found other ways. Every car is sold with a VIN that works as the car’s “identity”. Just like we have social security numbers, your car has an identification number. A key code may be purchased from the manufacturer only through a licensed locksmith. Once a technician gets the correct code, they will input it in a high tech key cutting machine. With the correct code, the machine is designed to cut a key blank with the correct cuts for your vehicle.
Metal Car Key
A metal car key is the most basic car key you can get. It is simple cut from a metal key blank and will work in the ignition right away. These keys are common for older vehicles, but a lot vehicles you still see use this type of key. These car keys are very basic and don’t have a high security system.
Transponder Car Key
Transponder car keys are the most common car keys to date. They were made in order to increase the anti-theft system in vehicles. These keys work by sending and receiving signals, and because of this, they must be programmed to the vehicle. Inside the plastic head of a transponder key is a chip. This chip sends out the correct signal to the ignition of the car, verifying that it is the correct key. If a transponder key is cut correctly, but not programmed to the car, the ignition will not start. The chip must be read correctly to disarm the anti-theft system. Our technicians have the most advance equipment to make sure your transponder key is coded correctly to your vehicle.
FOB Car key
A car FOB key is a remote that allows the car to start without inserting a key in the ignition. Cars with keyless entry and push-to-start, require key fobs. There are two types of fobs, one with a proximity and one without. The proximity key fobs allow you to lock or start your vehicle when the fob is within a certain distance of the car. A key fob without proximity is usually inserted in a slot to turn on the vehicle. These are a high tech security system that many newer cars use. Fobs must be programmed to the car in order for the ignition to read the correct signal to disarm the anti-theft system and start the car.
