Transponder chip key?

A key with a transponder chip means that is has a radio transmitter in the key that works with the car’s computer using a wireless system to determine that it is the original key, thus starting your car.  Key 4 Less can program your specific transponder chip key to your unique vehicle.  

Construction master key

A key normally used by construction personnel for a temporary period during building construction. It may be rendered permanently inoperative without disassembling the cylinder.

Customer Testimonials

I bought a car from an auction.  There was no record of the Vehicle Identification Number and it had NO keys.  These guys handled the situation like pros!  They said the ignition had to be changed.  He went to his warehouse.

High Security Vehicles

I learned a lot about cars when I lost the keys to my 2008 Ford Escape. I was referred to Key 4 Less locksmith by a friend who had locked herself out of her car a couple weeks earlier. She was satisfied with their service, so when I called her, she knew who to recommend.  I had no idea that there were different types of car keys. I really didn’t know that my car had a higher level of security known as a coded engine immobilizer system and used a “transponder key.”  Furthermore, I learned that these keys need to be programmed by a locksmith technician with the right equipment. Without the key being programmed my car’s “brain” won’t recognize the key and will not start the car.  I also learned that previously, I might have HAD to go to the auto dealer, which is always expensive and time-consuming. 

Luckily, when I called Key 4 Less, the technician said he could meet me the same day.  In under an hour, he arrived to my door to cut and program my new key.  I must admit, I was a little excited because he also really cute (hehehe!).  As he was preparing a new key for me, I found out a little bit more about cars.  He told me that in addition to transponder chip keys, there’s other coded engine immobilizer systems like GM VAT systems, and laser cut keys.  I was impressed that he was able to make all these new keys.  It’s a real skilled trade that I was unaware of before.  I even looked inside the locksmith’s van.  It was filled with interesting tools and high tech machinery to create keys.  During our conversation, I found out that serves the entire Bay Area and cuts nearly 35 car keys per week, not including car lock outs and other locksmith services.  I was impressed and even happier when he handed me the new, working car key!

I will keep this locksmith’s number and refer him to anyone needing fast, professional and friendly locksmith services.  Who know, I may even lock my keys in my car and purpose and call him to come rescue me again
