There are several approaches to cutting a car key. The first method is by removing the car door lock and reading the car key cuts from the actual wafers or pins inside the door lock. We then can cut the car key blank to correspond to those cut readings.
The second method for car key cutting is to extract a code from the VIN number. We have access to the dealer/manufacturer database holding the information of the key cuts, making it a much more simple process. This method however does require us to pay a fee to connect to the database, and is our least preferred method, to keep your costs lower.
The third method for us to cut a car key is by picking the ignition and getting the cuts from there. In some cases, the ignition switch has been replaced in the past, and the door lock cuts or the ones extracted through the VIN number don’t match the ignition. It’s the most time consuming and laborious method, however our expert locksmiths are capable of making a car key regardless of the difficulty.
How to Cut a Car Key?
We only use top of the line certified car key cutting machines such as the HPC Punch Machine. It may seem low-tech, however, this analog punch machine is the most precise car key cutting tool available. After we retrieved the cutting information for your car ignition keys, we then use designated guide cards that direct us exactly where to punch a notch in the key, to correspond with the pins/wafers in the ignition, to allow a smooth turning motion to activate your ignition switch.
Most cars on the market require a transponder key, which has a little radio frequency chip inside the casing that unlocks the car immobilizer system. Our locksmiths are capable of cutting transponder keys and programing them as well. Keyfobs are also available for selected models.
