Difference Between Key Programming And Clonning
Most newer Car keys won't accept being cloned and will need to be programmed direct to the Cars ECU's memory which will need to be done from a certified auto locksmith.
How Long Does Programming a Key TakeProgramming an additional key can take as little as 15-20 minutes dependent on the auto-mobile which the key is being programmed too. When keys have been lost or stolen codes will have to be erased and made up new for security reasons this can take a little longer for the auto locksmith as there is a little more work involved as we will have to make the lost stolen key no longer work with the vehicle. When a complete lock set change is needed a lot more work is involved in the programming of the vehicle which can take a little longer than just programming simple codes as pin codes and other safety codes are needed to be read from the auto mobiles ECU.
Why Does It Cost Different Prices For Different Makes Of Auto Mobiles To Have Keys Programmed
Programming machines which auto locksmiths carry are set on a token metre even though the locksmith owns these machines outright the software on them can only be accessible from purchasing tokens which costs the locksmith. Higher value Cars and Auto Mobiles tend to cost a lot more tokens than just your average car. No Car or Automobile uses the same amount of tokens so no two auto locksmith jobs will ever cost 2 people the same amount of money.
