Professional Car Key Programming in Tamworth

Cars, vans and motorbike keys are now fitted with electronically-coded transponder chips which are embedded in the plastic body of the key or remote fob and the code from the chip is read by the car when you turn the key in the ignition.

If your vehicle’s keys transponder chip is broken or missing the engine won't start. PT Auto Locksmiths in Tamworth offer services to repair broken remote keys, key fob programming and can also replace lost transponder keys.

Our auto locksmith specialist can attend your vehicle, gain entry (without any damage), cut and programme new vehicle keys at the roadside, your home or place of work usually in under 1 hour.


We reprogramme keys for most makes and models

We reprogrammed key fobs and transponder keys for just about every vehicle under the sun – you can find yours here: makes and models. But don’t worry if your vehicle isn’t there – it may just be that we haven’t updated our list recently, so give us a call and we’ll check for you.

When is car key programming required?

Since 1995, all vehicles made and sold in the UK are fitted with an immobiliser system meant to deter thieves from stealing the cars. These keys hold a unique ID code which, when inserted into the ignition, will only start the vehicle if the code received from the key matches the ID code of the car. Some of the reasons for losing communication between a fob or transponder key and the car varies and might include:

  • Remote or immobiliser fault. When synchronisation between a fob or transponder key and the vehicle is lost, reprogramming becomes necessary in order to restore full functionality.
  • Key fob or transponder key is lost or stolen. Reprogramming new car keys requires that lost or stolen ones are erased from the car memory to ensure missing car keys will no longer be paired with the car.
  • Key fob or transponder key battery has died. After replacing a car key battery, some keys - especially newer models - require reprogramming or resynchronisation before they'll work properly.
  • Water penetration. As with most electronic gadgets, the majority of transponder keys are not compatible with water.  When water gets inside the remote, it causes corrosion which stops the communication with the vehicle. If no other damage is visible, a clean-up of the remote, having the battery replaced and reprogrammed will solve the issue.
