Raleigh Locksmith Group will professionally make you a new transponder key. What’s even better is that we can do this quickly, and we come to you!

We know that missing car key is an emergency and as your Raleigh locksmith service, we encounter this issue frequently. The experience of losing your electronic car key, also known as a transponder key, is very stressful. If you are unable to enter or use your vehicle, not only are you feeling frustrated, but you’ve found yourself in the midst of a security issue as well.

When car owners are in this situation, they often feel vulnerable and sometimes panic. This response is entirely understandable. Your safety and your vehicle are of the utmost importance.

Many people simply do not know how to have the transponder keys to their vehicles replaced. Others have heard the myth that only a dealership is able to make new electronic keys.

Our trusted team is very aware of how serious losing a transponder key is, so we provide our customers with replacement transponder keys which we make on-site. Raleigh Locksmith Group’s dedicated service allows you to save yourself the hassle of dealing with the dealership. This means that you can get back on the road in your vehicle as soon as possible.

How is a transponder key made?

Years of experience and training, plus special equipment allow us to program a new transponder key for your vehicle. We use the same tools as car dealerships to program remote entry keys. After we program your new transponder key, it is able to send a signal to your car’s receiver, which is located near the ignition.

Keep in mind that because transponder keys must be programmed using expertise and advanced instruments, you should only trust a licensed and bonded service like Raleigh Locksmith Group with this task.

How much does it cost to have a new remote entry key made for my car?

Every lockout situation is unique. Factors like the make and model of your car determine the cost of replacing your transponder key. Transponder keys are embedded with microchips, which make them more costly for anyone (including both locksmiths and dealers) to replace.

Give us a call at (919) 372–3667. We would be happy to provide you with a free estimate based upon your individual needs.

Do I really need a transponder key for my vehicle?

Yes! A standard key may open the door to your car, but most vehicles with transponder keys will not start without the electronic component to their keys.

In other words, the microchip in the key is necessary to drive the car because it communicates with the ignition system.

Transponder keys are also more secure than older, traditional car keys because they help prevent thieves from “hot wiring” and stealing cars. Once again, most cars with transponder keys will not start unless the key’s microchip or the serial number is detected.

Although no security measure is entirely foolproof, transponder keys are MUCH more efficient than standard keys at protecting your vehicle and any belongings inside it from crooks.

When should I call a locksmith about my remote entry key?

You should call a licensed professional locksmith anytime you need a replacement transponder key or a new battery for your key. Any time your key is lost, stolen, or unresponsive, call us and a member of the experienced local team at Raleigh Locksmith Group will be there to assist you.

So, why do keys break off inside locks?

Here are some common reasons why keys break inside locks, or get stuck in locks:

  • The key is old, and daily use has resulted in a lot of “wear and tear.”
  • The lock itself faulty or malfunctioning.
  • The lock has not been properly maintained with lubricant.
  • If you used a lot of force, and the soft metal of the key snapped under pressure.
  • The key or lock was made by a low-quality manufacturer.

What to do if your key has broken inside a lock, or is stuck in a lock:

Act quickly if you break your key off inside a lock. If the key broke off while the door was unlocked, your vehicle, home, or office is no longer secure and is at risk of theft. On the other hand, if the key broke off while the door was locked, you are now locked out of your property. Regardless of whether or not the door was locked when the key broke, leaving the broken key in the door can cause permanent damage to the lock.

We would love to be your trusted emergency locksmith if you break a key in a lock.

If you live in Raleigh or the surrounding area, call Raleigh Locksmith Group at (919)372–3667. Our customer-focused locksmith company is licensed and bonded, and we have a team of highly-trained technicians. We’re affordable, reliable, and highly rated!

That being said, it may be possible for you to remove the broken key yourself.

We would like to share some unbiased tips about how you may try to remove the broken lock.

  1. Check to see if part of the key is sticking out of the lock. Even if only a small portion of the broken key is protruding, consider yourself lucky!
  2. If a large portion of the key is sticking out, try pinching the key between two fingers to withdraw it. Please be careful if you choose to do this and consider your safety. You do not want to cut your fingers on a broken key. A pair of leather gloves may come in handy.
  3. If a smaller portion of the key is visible outside the lock, you may be able to withdraw it using needle nose pliers. This method also has drawbacks. Be very gentle. You do not want to snap off the protruding portion of the key and leave part of the key inside the lock.
  4. If the key is not protruding from the lock, some individuals recommend inserting a tiny flathead screwdriver into the lock to try to remove the key. In our experience, this method tends to do more harm than good, often damaging the lock. For this reason, we recommend calling Raleigh Locksmith Group at (919)372-3667 if the broken key is not sticking out from the lock.

Prevent broken keys:

  • If your key appears to be damaged, it’s time to get rid of it. Make sure that you have at least one reliable key and one reliable spare. Throw out any key looks bent or otherwise seems to be problematic.
  • You should also apply a silicone-based lubricant spray to the keyhole once every 6 months. This maintenance step should also be taken if you notice a friction, sticking, or grinding when you try to use the lock.
  • Don’t try to force keys into locks if the lock feels “stuck.” If you do this, you are likely to damage your lock or key. Hint: call us for help!
