What do you do if you lose your car keys?

Long ago, damaging or losing the car keys wasn’t a great deal. You can have spare keys attached to that little box in your car or get it stuck in the bumper. Also, there was not much technological advancement in the car’s manufacturer, so lost key replacement is expensive.

There are different situations where you may lose your car keys. You might keep it somewhere where you realise you lost it, or you might damage it. There must be the best solutions to cope with this unimaginable situation. So, let’s head up to the best solutions that one can go for when losing the car keys.

Losing the Traditional Keys

If you own an old car, you possibly have the traditional keys. This kind of key is entirely mechanical. You need to put it in the ignition and turn it on to start your car.

If you lose your traditional keys, then we have the best solutions for it too.

It is easy to enter the car even if you lose it somewhere in the middle of the road. Look for a locksmith and get yourself a duplicate key. There might be instances where the same key won’t work to turn on your car. Changing the ignition lock cylinder is better. You might rarely face this situation in old cars.

Losing the Keys with Fob

With a bit of technological advancement, the car keys came with an additional fob to make locking and unlocking the car pretty convenient. However, there was still the need for the key to turn on its ignition.

If your car keys come with an external fob attached next to the keys in the chain, you are still saved from the severe problems of losing the keys. If you have lost only the fob, you can use the key to open the car and buy the fob later directly from the company.

However, if you lose the key, on the other hand, you are advised to call the nearest locksmith who can help you in preparing a duplicate key.

Losing the Transponder Keys

Going a step forward from the traditional key comes to the transponder keys. This type of key comes with a built-in chip that transmits signals to the ECU to turn on the car’s engine, making it go on a little advanced in technology.

If you ever lose your transponder keys, you can always go ahead with a locksmith who is quite experienced in dealing with such keys. They usually have spare keys with the same chip as your car’s model, which can help in turning on the vehicle. But, be cautious as this car key replacement cost is quite expensive compared to the traditional keys.

Losing the Switchblade Key or Car Key Fob

Many automakers have developed a new Car key fob or switchblade key, which can help you enter the car with no duplicate key. You either need a spare key or get the lost key replacement with the nearest dealer.

Losing the Latest Technological Smart Key

The latest car key that you will now see is the ‘Smart Key,’ also known as ‘Keyless Ignition.’ This key operates with a proximity sensor, unlocks the car, and turns it on with a push of a button.

If you have lost the smart car keys and have no spare key, then you can do nothing except tow your car to the nearest company to your place and get yourself one. You can either order one if there is no key available on stock.
