Car Key Advice
One of the best ways to avoid getting into trouble in the first place with regards to losing the car keys is to have a spare key. When buying a second hand car, always ask for the spare key in case either party forgets after purchase.
If this is too late, we can provide a replacement car key that works with your existing car's security and ECU.
Damaged Car Locks
As mentioned in the damaged car lock service page, many people make the mistake of thinking a car lock is broken when its in fact just frozen! Using a method of heating, such as a hair dryer can fix your 'broken' lock in a minute or two.
If your remote alarm is not working, stopping you accessing your car, you can try a few things first. Checking the car's battery is a good start, but it could also be interference with the radio frequency used by the key's remote. Failing this, the central locking should have a bypass system using the normal metal key to unlock the doors without setting the alarm off. This 'auxiliary entry' system should be explained in the owner's handbook supplied with the car.
Losing Car Keys
Be sure to always take your car keys with you whenever stopping for petrol or similar circumstances. It may save you seconds, but could result in an expensive hassle if you need a new key. For obvious security reasons, you may have to replace the locks and the transponder keys as well as the car's ECU.
It's not just security within the car that is important. Car security is so sophisticated now that most thieves need to steal your keys to get the car working .Therefore, make sure you car keys are in a place such as a hidden safe. It is important not to make their 'job' easy as most thieves are opportunist and will give up after a short time, but at the same time remember your life is more important than a car.
