CALIBRE AUTO LOCKSMITH
Car Key Cutting and Programming
But to help prevent theft, since 1995 it has been a legal requirement that all vehicles have an immobiliser system fitted. A system that works with a transponder chip built into the car key. The engine only starts if the ignition receives the correct code from the transponder chip when the key is turned.
And today most car keys are 3 in 1. The traditional key blade for the steering lock, the integrated transponder the car has to recognise to turn the ignition and a remote control to unlock the car doors, or turn off an alarm.
All that functionality comes at a price however and depending on where you go for a new or replacement key, and the circumstances, the cost can be high and vary wildly.
You certainly do not have to go to a main dealer for new car key cutting and programming, that will definitely be the most expensive option. Which may account for the £180 million that British drivers spent last year in simply replacing lost keys, according to the RAC.
Calibre Auto Locksmith can cut and program any manufacturers keys at a fraction of what it would cost at the dealers. They often have to order the key in as well which may take days to arrive. Dealers do not offer a mobile service either, if you have lost your only key you have to factor in the expense of delivering your car to their workshop too.
