Repair & Replace All Ignitions
Is your ignition switch jammed? Or did the key break off? Years ago it was frighteningly easy to hot-wire a car by bypassing the ignition switch. Not so today with closed dashboards and steering wheel interlocks. But our car locksmiths can repair the switch or replace the cylinder (just like a building door lock) without a long detour to your mechanic (who doesn’t specialize in locks anyway). Again, we have the specialized tools, training, and parts for just about any make and model, foreign or domestic.
Transponder Chip Keys
Wireless transponder keys were developed primarily as a theft deterrent. In addition to the physical key, a computer chip inside the fob exchanges a series of random-looking codes with the vehicle’s onboard computer. If the codes don’t match an “immobilizer” prevents the car from starting even if the key fits.
If your problem is a key broken off in the ignition, door, or trunk in nearly every situation our experts can quickly remove it without damaging the lock.
