There are many reasons why it’s beneficial to have replacement keys for your vehicle. Losing your keys is one reason, locking them in your car is another, and simply having peace of mind that you have another set laying around can’t be overstated. Nowadays, getting a replacement key isn’t as simple as making a copy at your local hardware store. Many new vehicles use key fobs instead that have to be programmed to your vehicle, so they are a little more difficult to make. Here’s what you need to know about the importance of having replacement keys for your vehicle.

Key Technology Has Evolved In Recent Years

The convenience of having a key fob is nice, but the cost associated with the convenience is something to look at as well. A traditional key can be made for a couple of dollars, but a replacement key fob is much more. Some manufacturers will give you a replacement key fob when you purchase a vehicle, but that’s not always the case. It’s best to ask them right away to make a replacement key or take it to DeBoer’s Auto.

Why It’s Important To Have At Least Two Keys For Your Vehicle

With the security features and programming that has to happen with new vehicles today, the vehicle has to be re-programmed to have a replacement key work.
