Where To Get A Car Key Copy
Having a spare car key is always a good idea because car keys can break, quit working, get misplaced, lost and even stolen. In addition, if you have an extra car key on hand then you don’t have to panic if you lock your keys in the car as you will always have a spare key to get back in. However, where you go to get a car key copy depends on what you want the copy for. Car Key Copy for Your Door and Trunk Locks
If you are just looking for a spare key to open your car doors or your trunk then you can go to any place that cuts keys. While these key copies won’t start your car, they can still come in handy if you tend to lock your keys in the car, or simply want to make sure you can always gain access to the interior of your car. Simple cut car keys are inexpensive and they can save some wear and tear on your regular key that use in the ignition especially if you don’t have an automatic trunk or door opener button in your car or if one of these buttons are malfunctioning.
Keys to Start Your Car
If you purchase a new car you may get two sets of car keys when you purchase your car. However, in cases where you purchase a used car from an individual you may only get a single set keys because the second set is no where to found. Having a spare key that actually starts your car may be important if you and someone else shares use of the car and you don’t want to have to pass the car back or forth or if you simply want a back up key in case the one you have stops working or breaks.
Getting a car key that actually turns on the ignition is far different than getting one to open your doors as today’s cars (since the 1990s) come with little computer chips called transponders that are programmed to tell your your ignition to function. To get a copy of one of these keys you either need to go your car’s dealership or to a professional locksmith that has the equipment and knowledge to make a car key with a transponder and program it to work with your car.
