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.
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.
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.
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.
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).
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’.
All car keys made after 1995 have an electronic transponder chip embedded inside them which is paired to your car’s immobiliser unit and will disengage the immobiliser unit allowing the vehicle to be switched on.
If the transponder chip inside the key is not correctly programmed specifically to your car, the key will not be able to switch your car on. This is basically a modern anti-theft system that is almost impossible to override.
What it means is that making replacement car keys involves more than simply cutting a new key: the technician must also correctly programme the transponder chip to match your car specifically. This requires very high-tech equipment. Our car key replacement technicians travel in their mobile units packed full of dealer-standard diagnostic and key-cutting equipment that will allow them to replace your car keys quickly and efficiently.
Warning: Second hand or recylced keys purchased via Ebay or the internet will NOT start a Renault car – unless the key has been diagnostically synced with the vehicle using dealer-standard diagnostic equipment. Keys are programmed using a unique 4-digit security code relating to the specific vehicle held on Volkswagen’s central database. Official Volkswagen dealerships rely on this code to programme new keys for customers.
Our Renault key specialist will travel to you wherever you are with his mobile unit clearly marked with our logo.
He will then open your car even if it is completely locked and you have lost all your keys.
The next step involves connecting to your car’s electronic system using high-tech diagnostic equipment that will extract the electronic data that the technician will require to programme the transponder chip in your new Renault key.
Having extracted the data, the technician will cut and programme a new key specifically to your car, at which point you can happily drive away as if nothing had happened.
Numerous happy customers will attest that our service goes far beyond that provided by High Street dealers while at the same time it will cost you less. Using an independent Car Key Specialist like Autokey Squad will typically save you around £40-£50 on dealership prices.
Also, unlike High Street dealers, we will not keep you waiting for days, we will not rip you off with exorbitant fees and we will not complicate matters by insisting that you provide us with documents and security codes that you probably never even knew existed. We will instead dispatch a Renault key specialist to you wherever you are and he will make a new Renault key fob for you by the roadside while you wait. We will charge you the fee that we agreed on and not a penny more.
Remember: We can make a replacement key fob for you even if you have lost absolutely everything and your car is locked and stranded in the middle of nowhere. We have helped numerous Renault owners replace their car keys and we look forward to serving you too!
If you bought your Renault vehicle second hand and it only came with one key, Autokey Squad strongly recommends that you purchase a second set of keys so if one of them gets misplaced or breaks apart, you will still have a backup set. If you could drive to our shop in Highgate, North London (248 Archway Road, London, N65 AX), you can get a spare key created by one of our technicians while you wait. The prices are aprox. 30% lower than our Mobile service ones and up to 70% lower than what the Dealers charge.
Just to give you an idea of our Discount Shop prices, Volkswagen basic keys can cost as little as £67 including VAT and programming.
