Lost or Broken car keys replacement

If you have lost or broken all your car keys, we can come to you and provide you with a new set of keys in minutes, without asking you to have your vehicle towed to our base or wait for 10 working days like the dealer will.

Car key Duplication

If you have one key that starts the engine and just need a spare, you can either book an appointment with one of our mobile specialists or you can save money by coming to our Discount Shop in North London (248 Archway Road, N65AX) and have it done here. Remember: it’s always more cost-effective to have your car key cloned so you’re prepared if one of them gets lost or broken.

Car key programming

Sometimes your remote fob or transponder chip becomes de-synchronized and needs diagnostic equipment to get it working again. Should this be your case, give us a call and save money from applying for a brand new set of keys.

Car opening

Have you locked your car keys inside your vehicle or just need urgent access to your car? Our locksmiths are fully trained with secure techniques to gain entry to your vehicle without leaving a trace.

Car key repair

You might find yourself in a situation where your car key has snapped, cracked or has just become too worn to function properly. Our technicians can repair it whether that might be onsite or at our Discount Shop in North London (248 Archway Road, N65AX).

Car Lock Repair/ Ignition Barrel Repair

If you have problems with your door lock or ignition barrel (e.g. a key blade that snapped in the lock or a key that refuses to turn into the ignition), Autokey Squad can come and service your needs onsite and prices quoted are normally far lower than garages’.

Additional Kia Information

How Kia car keys work

All Kia car keys made after 1995 contain a small microchip buried in the plastic head of the key called a transponder chip. This transponder Chip is a passive one -does not need a battery to function – is made of clear plastic glass (see picture) and must be programmed to your specific Kia vehicle in order to allow the engine to start. Transponder chips are buried in the keys of all modern Kia vehicles – This applies to both newer Kia “remote car keys” and simple Kia car keys which don’t have remote central locking buttons on the fob.

Autokey Squad car service vs. Dealers’ service


Autokey Squad is Britain’s leading car key specialist to help you with your car key problem. So, if you have locked your keys inside the car or you have snapped the metal blade in the ignition, or have damaged the exterior locks, or simply have lost or got your keys stolen, we are here to help. Having served more than 6000 happy customers for the past three years we aim to provide the fastest, most convenient car key replacement service while saving you money compared to the dealer prices.

Thus, Autokey Squad offers a much better value service than high street dealers because our service is mobile which means you don’t pay any car towing costs (which you had to pay, should you have lost or broken all your Kia car keys) and that you will be able to receive your new key on the spot and drive your car away without any inconvenience.

Our customers save on average £40 on the key alone, ignoring any towing costs compared to the high dealership charges. In addition, we come to you so you don’t have to take time off work or spend the whole weekend at the Dealer. Furthermore, we will produce the key while you wait as opposed to Dealers that can take up to 10 working days to order the key from overseas, directly from the Kia production plants, requesting you to pay them a second visit in order to program the key to your own Kia.


Autokey Squad never compromises on quality and all our experienced Kia technicians carry the latest diagnostic equipment on-board to ensure our workmanship on your vehicle is completed to highest possible standard. For your peace of mind, our work carries a full money-back guarantee of quality workmanship and is covered by 1 year guarantee so you can book an appointment with us with confidence. You can do that by calling 0203 588 0420 or 0330 999 0121 (free from mobile)

Saving Tip:  Keep in mind that older Kia Car Keys (manufactured prior to 1995) often contain no transponder chip. This significantly reduces the price of new car keys for vehicles of this age.

Warning: Beware of online gadgets selling discount or used keys (on websites like ebay or gumtree). These keys are unusable as they need to be programmed and diagnostically paired to your car especially using dealer-standard diagnostic equipment, pairing devices and other hi-tech equipment in order to allow your engine to start.



Spare Kia key duplication service- save ££ when you come to our Shop

If you bought your Kia second hand and it came with just one key, we recommend that you purchase a second set of keys so in case of an emergency or if the key that you currently have gets lost, you still have a backup set. If you have time, and can drive to our Discount Shop in Highgate, North London (248 Archway Road, London, N65 AX), we can supply you with a new car key while you wait. Prices are aprox. 30% lower than our Mobile service and up to 70% lower than Dealers’. You can save more than £100 if you create a spare key in advance rather than having your lost car key replaced. For example, a basic Kia key can cost as little as £57 including VAT and programming.

Save £££ at AutoKey Squad’s Discount Outlet: Spare Car Keys from just £57 all in…

If you would like to get a quote or book a slot to get a spare key get in touch with our shop staff by calling 0203 588 0420 (highly recommended to ensure a Kia specialist is available when you arrive).

REMEMBER: Using an independent Car Key Specialist like Autokey Squad will typically save you around £40-£50 on dealership prices. In addition, a mobile technician will visit your Kia vehicle wherever it is located to supply your new Kia remote control key at the roadside at a time convenient to you. Available appointment times include out-of-hours appointments during evenings, weekends or early mornings at no extra charge.
