What will it cost?
Car Keys Kentwood MI

To replace car keys Kentwood MI -- The price will depend of what type of key you have!

A few newer model cars and most older cars are equipped with plain metal keys (no transponder chip). These keys don't require the new key be programmed to your vehicle

Most newer cars are equipped with transponder keys. (These keys have a transponder chip embedded into the head of the key). Transponder keys were created to eliminate car theft. If anyone tries to start your car without the transponder key, the car will shut down and some will become completely immobilized.

When we create replacement car keys for your car (from the car's VIN - Vehicle ID #), the new key needs to be programmed to your vehicle and the car's computer to allow the key to work. We come to you to program the new key.

Most car dealers only keep these codes for 10 years. Even if they have your code, they will require (in the case of a transponder key) that you have the vehicle towed to their location to program the key to the vehicle.

GM vehicles (Buick, Cadillac, Chevrolet, GMC, Oldsmobile & Pontiac, approximately 1990 - 1996) were created with a small black transistor on the blade of the key. These keys are referred to as VATS keys. Since many vehicles of this age are still on the road, this is the third type of key could have.

(Sampling of our Google reviews!

Todd Freeman -- Last fall, I walked away from my table at a bar for about 15 minutes, and returned to find my car keys missing. The bartender explained he'd found them- but had already given them away to some drunkard! After a day or two of calling back the bar and other businesses in the area to no avail, I called around and learned A-1 would be able to make a new key on the spot. They arrived, as promised within 30 min of my initial call, and about 30 min after that had fabricated a new key for my vehicle. The price was very reasonable for their immediate turnaround, if you're ever in a similar bind call that A-1 !

Blake Noll -- Words can't express how grateful am! Called around many places and said they couldn't help me. Called A-1 and they had me up and going in just over an hour! They went out of their way to get me back up and on the road!! Only place I would recommend. :) Thanks again!!

Codi  Rettig -- A-1 was the third "24 hour" locksmith I called, and the only one who answered on a weekend. They were very fast and helpful. Pat took down my information and explained to me what would have to be done to replace my lost key. When Desmond, the locksmith, got there the snow was so bad that he had to park nearly two blocks away. Even after walking through the snow he was super pleasant, and fixed my problem really quickly. I would definitely recommend A-1 for anyone's lock and key problems.
