Get Quality Vehicle Key Repairs in the Comox Valley & Surrounding Areas

If you only have one key for your vehicle, it's a good idea to get another one made as the cost of making a duplicate key is a lot cheaper than making a new one if you lose all your keys. If you don’t have a spare one, do not worry. At Pete's Lockshop in Comox, we can cut most of the high-security automotive keys by code and also offer key repairs. Transponder keys have microchips inside them that send a signal to the onboard computer of your vehicle that allow it to be started. We cut and program most automotive high-tech transponder chip immobilizer keys.

Please remember that creating new keys can be very expensive. We highly recommend you carry two sets of keys when you travel so that if you lose one, you can still use the other to get home.

Equipped to Program All Automotive Keys

At Pete's Lockshop, we can program all types of automotive car keys.

In automotive applications, there are 2 types of transponders, namely:

  • Programmable transponders: These have a code or value previously configured at the factory. This code or value can be programmed into the car's computer by an onboard programming procedure or with the use of a diagnostic tool. By using these methods, the car's computer will recognize the value previously written on the transponder and start the car.

  • Cloneable transponders: They have no code written on them. These transponders are also known as "Read-Write Transponders" and are designed to be used with a cloning tool. The cloning tool will read the information written on the original key and then write that information on the cloneable transponder creating an exact duplicate or clone of the original key.

Vehicle Unlocking and More

At Pete's Lockshop, our team can help you unlock your truck, van, car, SUV, motorcycle, RVs and trailers. We do ignitions along with vehicle lock outs and key replacements. So, if someone has lost their keys, we can program a remote which connects to the push start in the vehicle. We can also purchase a new remote and reprogram it. In addition to this, we can sell/program new key FOBs.
