Help & Advice

Can I get a remote key?

If you have a basic key for your car, we can part check your vehicle to see if your vehicle has the option for a remote. We have a wide variety of keys to offer, including colour aftermarket keys.

What do I do if my spare remote key isn't working?

If you do have a spare key and this has been kept in the drawer unused for a long time and doesn’t work, we would recommend you change the battery and if still having an issue we can offer a free test at the office and advise accordingly, sometimes the key will need reprogramming.

Top Tech Tip

'The glove box is the most common place to leave spare car keys, don’t do it!'

Modern Vehicle Remote Keys

What's the big deal?

A modern vehicle remote key is three things rolled into one:

  1. Mechanical Key Blade
    The flat metal part, to release the steering lock
  2. Coded Electronic Transponder Chip
    Read by the vehicle when the key is inserted into the ignition
  3. Remote Control
    To remotely unlock the doors and disable the alarm

All of this technology has been miniaturised and placed into the small plastic head of your vehicle key and this is why the price tag on a replacement vehicle key is so much more than a household one.

  1. Remote Casing
  2. Circuit Board
  3. Controller Chip
  4. Remote Buttons
  5. Battery
  6. Transponder Chip
