Louisville CAR KEY REPLACEMENT
Everyday wear and tear can cause the teeth of your car keys not to match the lock mechanism and then fail to open or start your car. If the key isn't quite as worn yet, it will usually still work but it may take several tries. When this happens, it's a good sign that you should contact a professional locksmith and have them create you a new set of keys. The danger in not doing so is that the keys will continue to wear down and you will eventually find yourself locked out of your vehicle or unable to start it. Losing access to your own vehicle is a hassle. Fortunately, you can prevent it by taking a proactive approach to key management.
Frequently Asked Questions
What is the procedure for replacing my car keys?
You can approach this issue in one of several different ways. The first is to take your current set of keys to the dealership where you bought the car and ask them to cut replacement keys for you. They should be able to do this without problem, although it may cost more than you were expecting to pay. Unfortunately, high repair or replacement prices are a common problem at auto dealerships.
The second option you can explore is to try to replace your own car keys. This will cost you the least, but it's important that you know exactly what you are doing to avoid wasting time and effort.
Your final option is to contact us to request that one of our experienced locksmiths replace your car keys for you. This will cost more than doing it yourself but less than taking your keys to a dealership. Most importantly, working with a skilled auto locksmith ensures that you receive a new set of keys that fits into your door lock or ignition without breaking or refusing to turn.
