You may find yourself misplacing your keys countless times throughout the day, but do you know what steps to take if you actually lose your car keys? Whether you have a spare set or are completely locked out of the vehicle, there are several things to do to regain access.
I Have a Backup Set
If you have a duplicate set of keys that can be accessed by someone you trust, call them immediately to have them get your keys and bring them to your location. If your key is lost for good, you will need to make an appointment with an automotive locksmith in order to have a new set cut and programmed to pair with your vehicle.
I Do Not Have Backup Keys
You may not have thought that a spare key was a necessary purchase when initially presented with the opportunity and never got around to it afterward. If you do not currently have an extra set of keys, you will need to call a locksmith near your location. An on-call locksmith will be dispatched to you in order to safely unlock your car and program a brand-new transponder to pair with the internal computer. This process will wipe out the previous programming, so any previous chip key for the car will not be able to unlock it or start the ignition. This protects your vehicle in case your keys are found or were stolen. If your car was manufactured prior to 1995, our locksmith will be able to reconfigure the lock to match the teeth on a new key.
