Excellent service! Cheapest quote I got after calling multiple companies. Needed my car locks changed and key reprogrammed. They were very flexible with booking a time that suited me. They turned up when they said they would and completed the job in the timely manner because I needed to make an appointment. I would definitely use them again.

Immobiliser/Alarm Pairing

When you get a new key from Keys 4 Cars, we’ll need to program it so that it works fully with your vehicle. We carry bespoke computerised equipment that makes the process quick and easy in most cases. Many car keys have an integrated transponder chip that is used to deactivate the vehicle’s immobiliser, and we’ll make sure that this is fully matched at the same time.

In rare cases, some cars may still need coding from your main dealer, so let us know your make and model in advance and we’ll be able to confirm whether or not we’ll be able to program your key correctly.
