Lost Car Keys

Have you lost your car keys? It is not an uncommon problem. The good news is that you don’t need to use a main dealer for an expensive replacement key. At the Key Machine we use the latest technology to provide you with a new car key that is programmed correctly to your car. We even come to you at your convenience.

Introduction to your car keys

Your car keys are cut by either a computer code, unique pattern or to the locks. In 1995 coded transponder chips were embedded into car keys’ plastic body. The chip itself is passive, so does not need a battery. A unique code within the car’s ECU (engine management) matches a code held in the key to allow it to start. If the chip is damaged or missing, then your car will not start.

How we can help with lost car keys

We hold blank keys to suit most vehicles. If you have concerns with your car’s security, it is no problem to change the locks and car keys appropriately to  a different combination, ensuring security. This means that lost or stolen car keys are rendered useless for anyone else holding them as they won’t be able to get in the car with them due to the old coding.

We can fix broken, damaged or lost transponder keys and appropriately re-programme the car’s immobiliser and ECU to accept a new unique code. This is the same service as your main dealer, but with the benefit of being less time consuming and less expensive too.
