First, you need to ensure that your vehicle is secure and nobody can access it if the lost keys get into the wrong hands. Then, we can read and un-program the code linked to your immobiliser system, preventing further access to the vehicle.

How much does an extra spare car key cost?

The prices can vary depending on several factors. One of the most important ones is whether or not you have the original key. If you have your original working key, the following things could make it more cost-effective: 

  • If we have to decode your lock to get the key code, this is a time-consuming process requiring a highly skilled auto locksmith. Also, if the lock is worn and damaged, we cant decode it. We need to buy the key code from the dealership for an additional cost. You can acquire the security details for your car. You can call your dealership for the keycode and the immo code as you are the owner. Sometimes the dealership can charge you a small fee; other times, they may give you free. Certain dealerships are not too helpful, and they usually say they can’t help you. If this happens, it’s worth trying and calling other dealerships. For example, if you have a Ford Transit Connect and live in Worcester and you Worcester Ford Dealership cant help you, it’s worth calling the Ford dealership in Hereford or Ludlow. You can save quite a bit if you choose to make these calls. Of course, if you have a working key, we can use that to copy the key. 
  • It’s much easier to start the car key programming process with the programmed key. In an “all keys lost” situation, we need to insert an unprogrammed key. This can put the vehicle in antitheft mode, and when this happens, the programming requires some advanced tools and time, making the process more expensive. 

All in all, if you need a spare key or you’ve lost all your keys, please give Oak Auto Locksmith a quote. We offer the same level of service as a dealership but up to 50% cheaper.
