Lost, broken and misplaced car keys can not only potentially ruin your day, but also cause you to empty your wallet for a replacement.

For residents of Palatine, IL, though, we provide high quality car transponder keys at affordable prices. We also cut them for you quickly – so you don’t have to wait for more than a little while for a replacement key. We have been cutting keys for vehicle owners in the area for a decade now, so don’t think twice about engaging our services.
Why do you have to pay so much for new car keys?
So why are car transponder keys so expensive? Transponder keys contain an electronic chip embedded in the plastic fob at the end of the body. This chip needs to be programmed by a computer with a unique code. The code is required by the car’s engine control unit (ECU) when you insert the key inside the ignition. Without the right code, the car’s immobilizer won’t deactivate and the engine won’t start. The programming requires specialized equipment that is expensive and hard to get. Also, modern keys are high-security varaints that require advanced machinery to craft. The remote unit at the end also needs to be compatible with your vehicle make and model. All of this contributes to the high cost. However, you can get new ones made from Palatine Locksmith Store at very economical rates.
