  • Gather details about your vehicle, including the make, model, year, and VIN (Vehicle Identification Number). This information is crucial for determining the correct type of key and fob for your vehicle.

2. Contact Our Locksmiths:

  • Professional Locksmith: A certified automotive locksmith can provide key cutting and programming services, often at a lower cost compared to dealerships.

3. Specify Your Requirements:

  • Clearly communicate your requirements to the service provider, including the number of keys and fobs needed, any specific features required (e.g., keyless entry, remote start), and whether programming is necessary.

4. Choose the Key Type:

  • Depending on your vehicle and preferences, you may need one or more of the following key types:
    • Traditional Metal Key: Standard keys used for manual unlocking and starting the vehicle.
    • Transponder Key: Keys with embedded electronic chips for immobilizer systems.

5. Programming (if applicable):

  • If your new keys or fobs require programming, ensure the service provider has the necessary equipment and expertise to program them to your vehicle's electronic system.

6. Testing:

  • After programming (if applicable), test each key and fob to ensure they function correctly. Test remote entry features, keyless start (if applicable), and verify that the physical keys operate the vehicle's locks and ignition smoothly.

7. Payment and Documentation:

  • Be prepared to pay for the keys, fobs, and any associated programming services. Ensure you receive documentation, such as a receipt or invoice, for the services provided.

8. Maintenance and Care:
