Our services include the removal and de-programming of any existing keys for your vehicle. This process involves 4 crucial steps that are essential to ensure the security of your vehicle:

  1. We erase any immobiliser transponders from your vehicle’s memory. These transponders are typically installed in keys and allow the engine to start. By doing this, lost or stolen keys can no longer be used to start the engine as the vehicle’s immobiliser will not recognise them.
  2. We de-synchronise the key fob’s remote control that is responsible for locking and unlocking the vehicle at the press of a button. Any lost or stolen key fob remotes will no longer be recognised by the vehicle, making them useless.
  3. We replace and/or re-code the ignition barrel (if present), tailgate barrel, and glove box barrel. This renders any old keys or other means of access useless, providing an added layer of security to your vehicle.
  4. We cut and program two new keys specifically for your vehicle, ensuring that you have a spare in case of emergencies.

Our auto locksmith service provides a comprehensive solution for your vehicle key needs, ensuring that your vehicle is secure and protected at all times.
