We’re so confident in our car key replacement services that we’ll even put a 100% guarantee behind each and every key that we cut! Whether your vehicle is foreign or domestic, we can make everything from transponder keys to chip keys to fulfill your needs. We can even go the extra mile to program your replacement key fob so that it works just like the old one. Key cutting services can be done while you wait as well!

Have You Lost Your Keys? Is Your Transponder Key Broken?

Keyway can replace all types of vehicle keys

We can replace all types of vehicle keys including transponder/chip keys, remote head keys, key fobs, and key remotes.

It has happened to all of us at one point or another. It happens without any warning. It’s an uncomfortable experience and can translate into lost time, missed appointments and reduced mobility. Losing your car key can be devastating because being unable to use your vehicle can leave you stranded where you don’t want to be. The same goes for a malfunctioning car key. Sometimes it seems things go wrong at the worst possible moment. And then you are stuck.

Fortunately, car key replacement does not necessarily have to turn into a nightmare. At Keyway Lock & Security we specialize in lost key replacement, with special focus on the replacement and duplication of traditional keys, intelligent keys, transponder keys, and smart keys for a variety of brands, including Honda, Toyota, Nissan, Ford, GM, Mazda, and BMW, as well as the replacement of Lexus remote head keys. In the State of Illinois, nobody can cut a key as well as we do. We know our job and we do it right.

How Do We Replace Car Keys?

Keyway is you car key replacement expert.

Both our store locations and our fully-outfitted locksmith vans have the necessary key cutters and programming equipment to create or duplicate keys for all makes and models.

Whether you are looking for a car key copy or a completely new key, the method we will use depends essentially on the make and model of your car. This is why, one of the first things you should do after losing your car key is to write down the year, make, model and VIN number of your vehicle. This information will help us program your new key so it will work with your car.

By now you are probably wondering why we need your car’s information. The answer is simple. Since the 1990’s, automobile manufacturers started using intelligent keys, which have a built-in microchip that allows your car to work with a specific key. The microchip in the key will “talk” to your car, and if you are using the wrong one, your vehicle will not start. This is the main reason why each one of these unique smart keys is assigned to a specific car. When you need to replace a lost or broken key, we will ensure your new key is as unique as the original was. That way, you will know your car will work as it should.

Achieving this goal is not as easy as it seems, and requires special equipment and reprogramming. At Keyway Lock & Security we have everything we will need to get you back on the road in no time at all, so, when you’re in need of expert car key duplication just give us a call and we will be happy to help.

What Is The Cost To Replace Car Keys?

Your car key replacement cost will depend exclusively on the type of key you need. Older car keys will be the least expensive to replace, with the newer, more sophisticated keys being more costly due to the specialized work involved in, for example, transponder key cutting, or electronic intelligent key replacement. At Keyway Lock & Security we are proud to offer the most competitive prices on the market throughout the State of Illinois, so give us a call today and we will be happy to answer any questions you may have before you find yourself stranded with no way to get home.
