Lost Car Key?
Believe it or not it happens more often than you think and nearly always at the worst time!
At Auto Lock Specialists we operate a completely mobile lost car key service. So wherever your car is, we can come to you, to make your replacement car keys on site.
In a lost car key situation we will travel to your car and gain entry using non-destructive lock picking methods. We have the very latest lock picks for almost all makes and model of vehicle. We are trained in the fine art of lock picking which mirrors the use of a key in the lock to gain access and most importantly causes no damage.
With state of the art laser key cutting equipment which we bring to your car we will cut you a new car key specifically cut for your lock.
Finally, but most importantly using the latest programming equipment we will program the transponder chip in your new key to your vehicle allowing the car to start when the key is turned in the ignition.
We can also de-programme any lost keys programmed to the vehicle for that extra piece of mind.
Our mobile key-cutting and remote programming equipment can provide you a replacement key to get you on your way where ever your car is in the West Midlands, Staffordshire, Warwickshire or Worcestershire.
As a security measure, since 1995 electronically coded transponder chips are fitted in all car, van and motorbike keys. The transponder chip is embedded in the plastic body of your key – you may not have even known it is there. They are on average 4x1mm in length and either made from plastic or glass. It is this transponder chip that needs programming to your car in order to send a signal for your car to start when the key is turned in the ignition.
