Replacing a Broken or Lost Key Fob or Remote
Almost all modern Australian cars have keyless entry as a standard feature.
Replacing a broken key fob is often the most sensible and feasible solution, rather than spending time and money on a repair that may not last or even work at all.
When someone loses a key to a keyless entry vehicle it poses a security threat, especially if they key is lost in a public car park or somewhere close to your home.
Any person who finds the key to a keyless entry car can walk around, clicking the unlock button until they see or hear the car unlock. Once the car is identified, they can simply hop in and drive away.
This is why we strongly recommend any person who loses their car key to consider purchasing a completely new set of keys. During the process of making new car keys, the automotive locksmith from KeyBay will wipe the original key data from your car, meaning that the old keys will not start the vehicle any more.
KeyBay has a complete mobile workshop with all the specialised equipment required to create spare and replacement car keys while you wait. We service most makes and models, including Ford, Holden, Honda, Mitsubishi, Hyundai, Subaru, BMW, Jeep, Nissan and many others.
