Master Lock and Safe
We are able to cut and programme car keys for most vehicles.
Simply call us with the make and model of your car or use the Contact Form below and we will be able to help.
In order for your new key to start your vehicle and operate the central locking, it needs to be coded to your ECU/immobilizer box. We use the latest programming machinery to connect to your vehicle’s OBDII (On Board Diagnostic) socket. Once we’re connected we can perform a number of tasks which include programming a new key in, reprogramming your original key and deleting any current keys stored in the vehicle (this is useful if you have lost a key or if they’ve been stolen). We sometimes need to retrieve an immobilizer pin number to allow us to make changes to the security system on your vehicle. We carry out this procedure during programming, or we can offer this as a standalone service should you require it. We offer all these services either at our showroom or at your home/work address or even at the roadside.
Key Fob Repair
Requiring brand new keys can be an unplanned expense none of us need. We offer a very viable alternative. Whether your blade has snapped off or one of the central locking buttons has broken, we can repair and refurbish your key fob at a fraction of the price of a new one, normally on the same day. We can even pick your faulty key up and carry out the repair so you’re not inconvenienced. .
A transponder key is a basic key that has the transponder or chip in, which enables the vehicle to start. These are significantly cheaper than a full remote key, and is a very viable option to have just as a spare key. We can offer this for most vehicles and can be done the same day. It’s worth bearing in mind on a small minority of manufacturers the remote on the key is operating the alarm as well as the central locking. If that is the case then you should have a full remote key. Not having the alarm active could invalidate your insurance.
Locked Keys in Car
If you’ve locked your keys inside your car, or even the boot along with your shopping then we can open your car via the mechanical lock using the latest lockpicking techniques available. This is known as non-destructive entry. We can have your door/boot open generally within a few minutes of arriving.
Lost Car Keys
All keys lost? We can help. Using the latest techniques we can get you moving again ASAP, sometimes within the same day and at a fraction of the cost of using a main dealer.
