What to Do If You’ve Lost Your Car Keys

Your car keys are missing and you are searching for them everywhere- your car, home, even under every pile of paper. You can’t find it and all search are in vain. If you need a car key replacement, here is what you have to do.

Transponder Key:

Many modern vehicles are equipped with state-of-the-art anti-theft devices, such as a transponder.

Transponder keys have a computer chip that links your car and the key to get the vehicle started.  The chip transmits a serial number that is distinctive to your car. When the signal is received correctly, your car is unlocked.  

But, if the missing car keys have a transponder key, you have to go to your local dealership to have a key replaced. But you will have to provide your ID proof to prove the ownership. The dealership will make you a car key replacement by linking a new chip with your car. This could possibly cost you a few hundred dollars. A good auto spare parts dealer can help you at a reduced cost.

Swapping Traditional Car Keys
