Expert Car Key Programming Services

The vast majority of cars nowadays incorporate a transponder chip that sends a unique identification code to the car’s on-board computer. It requires the right key and the right code – as recognised by the car – to unlock the door or start the engine in the first place. Of course, sometimes the system fails, which is when you need trained car locksmiths to reprogram the transponder chip to get you back on the road again

Our highly skilled car key programming team quickly and precisely undertake reprogramming for any type of car key at our Portsmouth workshop or from our mobile car key programming team who cover a 50-mile radius around our Portsmouth shop. This takes in the whole of Hampshire, as well as many of the surrounding areas. 

Car Key Programming & Reprogramming

Whatever make or model of vehicle you drive and whatever type of car key you need programming or reprogramming, we provide a second to none service while you wait. Our car key programming service is performed using state-of-the-art machinery to ensure a precise and accurate reprogram every time.

Faulty Transponder Key

If your key is physically intact, but failing to operate your vehicle, there may be a fault with the transponder chip in the key. You keep your original key, while we either reprogram the chip, or swap it for a new one. Either way, the process is simple and we can get you moving again in no time.

Broken Transponder Key

Sometimes the transponder chip might be working fine, but the key blade has snapped in the lock or the ignition. After we have retrieved the blade from the lock, we can transfer the chip to a new key blank. If the chip itself has been damaged, we can create an entirely new set of keys for you instead.

Duplicate Transponder Keys

Of course, there may be nothing wrong with your keys – you may simply need a second set to pass onto a friend, family member, or named driver. In this instance, you can bring you key into our Portsmouth shop, where we can cut and program a copy while you wait. Alternatively, our auto locksmiths can visit you at home.

Lost Transponder Keys

If you have had your car key lost or stolen, it is essential that you have a new set made and programmed. We can perform this service for you, once we confirm your identification and ownership of the vehicle.
