New Car Keys Cut Hamilton

Replacing lost car keys:

Losing your car keys can be frustrating for a lot of reasons. Firstly, you won’t be able to access the interior of your car. Secondly, you won’t be able to move the car from where you last parked it.

For these reasons, it is important to keep a spare set of car keys for emergencies. For older cars, utes and vans with a straight metallic key then most local hardware stores will have a key cutter who can create a duplicate key for you.

For a modern car, a cut metal key may allow you to unlock your car door, but it won’t start the car  The problem is that modern car keys have transponders in them that prevent the car engine from starting unless they are within a certain distance of the key barrel. You also have to have car immobilizer / transponder keys cut and reprogrammed to suit your exact vehicle, otherwise the engine will crank / turn over but the engine will not start.

Also most modern car, ute and van keys have remote controls on the key fob for remote door unlocking and the car alarm system. These keys will have a battery inside the key fob, that can go flat over time. When this happens you may start to notice that you need to be closer to the car to remotely lock / unlock the door and to arm and disarm the alarm.

Sometime you will also notice that the button on your key fob won’t do things intermittently. These are signs that you keys internal battery is going flat, and you should get it replaced as soon as possible.

If you don’t have a spare key, you will need to have a new key made for you by a specialist automotive locksmith.
