Should I Get A Car Key Copy?

Car keys have a way of getting lost, stolen or misplaced. For that reason it makes it perfect sense to have at least one copy of your car key, so you have a spare in case the original gets lost, misplaced or stolen. However, getting a car key copy is not as simple as it once was and can be expensive. Knowing where to go to get an affordable car key will make that car key copy more affordable for you.

Car Key Copy

Locksmith or Dealership?

It use to be that when you wanted a copy of your car key, you simply went to any place that had the machinery to cut keys and had a copy made. However, since the 1990s car keys now have transponders placed in the head that is programmed so that your car’s ignition won’t start unless you have the transponder programmed to your cars ignition. This means that you either need to have a copy of your key made at a dealership for your make of car or at an automotive locksmiths. Whether you choose a locksmith or a dealership you need to consider the cost of having that auto key made and programmed to work in your car. Here are some things to consider.

  • Cost of the Actual Key- While the cost of having a car key cut can differ a great deal depending on the locksmith you choose to do the work, in most cases having a locksmith cut that car key for you can cost you only a third to half the cost of what a dealership with charge you to cut the key.
  • Fob and Transponder- In most cases, the cost of the fob and transponder from a dealership and locksmith are often comparable. However, in some cases locksmiths can offer the fob and transponders at a lower cost than the car dealership will charge.
  • Programming You Key- Once the transponder and fob is installed in your key, the transponder needs to be programmed to work in ignition. In some cases, a dealership will program you key for free and in other cases they will charge labor costs for programming that key. Locksmiths almost always charge a programming fee, but this fee is often less than a dealership may charge if they charge for the labor.

In addition, if you wait until you lose your car key to have a car key copy made, you may have pay to have your car towed to the dealership to have a key made. In most cases an automotive locksmith will come to you to make and reprogram that spare key.
