What Can I Do If I Have Lost All Of My Car Keys?

When you realize that your keys are broken, lost, or stolen then it is time for you to call AFA Locksmith in Hoover. They are able to cut you a new key for your vehicle. If your keys have a transponder in them, they will have to program the new key to your vehicle in order for it to start your car. The price for this does vary depending on the level of security on your vehicle but no worries, these locksmiths are the most advanced and are able to program your key at your location.


How Do I know What Level of Security My Keys Are?

There are many different types of keys and when you find yourself having to call AFA Locksmith it is helpful to already know which type you do have, but if you do not know, our professional locksmith will be able to tell you.


Non-Chip Keys

Normally a vehicle that was made prior to 1999 does not have a transponder, or chip, in it. These keys are very low security and the locksmith will just cut the key exactly like the old one with teeth on the outside to give you access to doors, possibly trunk, and to turn over the motor. Some of these older vehicles have two separate keys, one for the ignition, and the other for door and trunk. Since there is no chip in the key, it will be the least expensive to make.


Transponder Keys

Transponder keys have chip in them and started being made in 1999 to increase the security on the vehicle. The chip inside of the key itself must be properly programmed to the car or the vehicle will not start. These keys are still cut on both sides and normally have plastic around the top of the key that houses the chip that corresponds to the transponder once the key is in the ignition.


Key Fobs

Most every car today comes with a remote, or also known as a key fob. It can be separate from the car key that goes into the ignition or it can be housed on the key itself, also known as remote key head. The key fob normally is able to lock and unlock to doors, open the trunk, and also has the panic mode. Sometimes these remotes will un-program itself and will need to be reprogrammed to the specific vehicle in order for it to work on properly. You are able to get it programed by AFA Locksmith on the spot at your location as well.

Proximity Keys

Smart Key, Push-To-Start, Keyless Entry, these terms all fall under the category of Proximity keys. These types of keys allow access to the doors and are able to start the vehicle via radio waves between the small fob and your vehicle. AFA Locksmith is able to program you’re proximity key for you so you do not have to make an appointment or make a trip to your vehicles manufacturer company plus it ends up saving you time and money from having to deal with the manufacturer and their expensive prices.
