Replacement keys and computer programming for your Asian car

Sales Galmier - Thursday, December 24, 2020

 

If you’ve been following this blog regularly, you might remember reading a little article talking about the ability of a car locksmith in Melbourne to help owners of German cars.

Of course, if you take a look at Melbourne’s roads, you’ll notice that European cars aren’t exactly in the majority - instead, you’ll notice that most cars actually hail from Asia.

So it would be a little bit strange if we weren’t able to help out and fix car key and lock problems with these cars!

So, better save the number of a car locksmith in Melbourne to your phone, just in case. Add 0407 022 234 to your phonebook or call us ASAP whenever you need car key replacement or unlocking services for your Asian car.

Is there a universal key for cars?

You may have seen aftermarket car key blanks that claim to be universal for all car brands. You may even be tempted to buy one to replace your current faulty key, thinking that there's nothing wrong with purchasing a universal car key.

After all, you'll never know when a car key problem may arise, and it’s nice to have a spare!

You may think that a universal car key can solve all your problems, especially if you’re worried about:

  • Losing your car key
  • Breaking and wearing out your keys
  • Getting your car keys stuck in the ignition
  • Your keys being stolen
  • Being locked out of your car

However, you may need to think twice before buying and using one for your car!

Remember that a universal car key, especially one purchased online has already been programmed - its transponder may not match your vehicle’s.

And you can’t forget that some car brands might simply use locks and ignition chambers with different dimensions, making a “universal” key useless!

You may need to have your car replacement keys reprogrammed by a certified car locksmith in Melbourne to ensure that it fits exactly with your car.

Either way, the universal option might not work universally - what you need is not a universal car key but a car replacement key for your Asian car brand. Luckily, a car locksmith in Melbourne cuts replacement keys for you (without the original if needed!)

How does an auto locksmith in Melbourne cut your car keys - even without the original?

Even if you don't have the original car key with you, an experienced auto locksmith can still get you back into your car and kit you out with a replacement key quickly without any damage.

One method we use is the VIN method.

In addition to identifying your vehicle, your car's Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) also comes with details regarding your keys.

Using your VIN, we can identify how many grooves your keys need, as well as how far apart they need to be and the code for its transponder. We can then cut a key to exactly these specifications, helping you get back on the road and saving you from car key problems.
