Over the past twenty years or so the security on new vehicles has risen significantly in the UK, with vehicle manufacturers building a far higher standard of locks and the introduction of transponder systems, so your car is more secure than ever before. The downside is that should you lose your keys or have them stolen you may have a real problem.
Vehicle keys now have to be programmed to the individual Engine Control Unit (ECU) to enable them to function. This means that unless your Chessington locksmith has had specialist training and purchased the latest technology required, they won't be able to help you.
Our Chessington auto locksmiths have received that specialist training and are skilled at non-destructive vehicle entry (no damage to your vehicle) and this includes deadlocked vehicles.
All our vehicles are fitted with ECU and transponder vehicle key equipment that is updated on a regular basis. Enabling our locksmiths to cut and programme functioning keys for the vast majority of vehicles in our vans at the roadside.
Please do not panic if your vehicle is not included simply contact us when you provide the make, model and year we will be able to inform you of the services we can provide.
