How our service for lost car keys works

With The Auto Locksmith, you will get a specialist vehicle locksmith who will come to you in the shortest possible time and on the spot, using specialist equipment and techniques, cut you a new set of keys programmed to work with your car’s ECU unit and immobiliser box. All mobile teams carry blank car keys and are able to cut them from either a key number or a lock as well as reprogram transponder chips. It won’t cost you an arm and a leg – its lost car key replacement made easy!

Not all keys work the same, whilst nearly all vehicle keys will be coded to disable a factory fitted immobiliser, some will have added features such as remote locking.  Some newer car keys may even slot into the dash or operate from your pocket without you having to do anything other than press a button in the car. The style and type of key required will effect how the key is produced and how long it will take to program.

The process:

On arriving at your car we will first gain entry, with no damage. Next it may be necessary to remove a lock to see how we need to cut the key. The correct key will be cut and chipped with the appropriate transponder for the vehicle. On some cars we can simply plug in a diagnostic tester and talk to your car to associate the new key. On more sophisticated cars it may be necessary to extract codes through Eeprom work or advanced diagnostic code challenging. Most keys can be produced and fully coded within as little as 30 minutes or less.

What to do if you have lost your car keys

If you think that your car keys have been lost or stolen, you need to ensure first that you have searched high and low for them, including retracing your last steps. If you think that your car is at risk of being stolen then you should immediately inform the police and then you should call The Auto Locksmith. Our mobile teams are all able to erase stolen keys from a vehicle’s immobiliser box and ECU. We can re-code the locks to new combinations and produce new working car keys. You wouldn’t have to worry about your car being stolen because you would be back driving it!! That alone is a good enough reason to ensure that you keep The Auto Locksmith’s telephone number close to hand – 08001583798.

My wife recently misplaced my Audi car keys - I called out a locksmith who was unable to get into our A3, however I found the auto locksmiths details online and gave them a call. What a relief to finally speak to someone who knew what they were doing! Mark came out to the car and within 10 minutes gained entry to my Audi and then cut me a new key and even cut me a deal on a spare key! The auto locksmith was a god send, he was confident in what he was doing, turned up in time and saved me from having my car towed to a main dealer. Thanks a million! Andrew Jennison, Isle of Dogs


Top notch service for getting new car keys.... Well recommended, 5 stars.....I lost both spare keys and the master car key to my 99 Ford Fiesta. I read on the internet that replacing car keys can be very expensive and time consuming. The Auto Locksmith offered a car key replacement service at my place of work at a price that didn't break the bank. They saved me time and money and even replaced all three car keys. I would recommend their specialist "lost automobile key service" to anyone.Mr Ahmed, Chingford
