Another common problem is when the but­tons on your fob stop working but the key still starts the car. First try replacing the fob’s battery. They are often available at drugstores and retailers such as Radio­Shack for less than $10. Look for a small screw or a slot along the fob’s seam where it can be pried open to access the battery. Make a note of any identifying numbers and take the old battery with you to the store. http://thecarlocksmith.co.uk/carkeycutting/images/Remote-Car-Key-Cutting-Cost_73.jpg
For the 2011 Honda Pilot, the chip (the electronic device that communicates with another piece in the ignition and allows you to actually start the truck) and door unlocker/fob (or whatever the hell you want to call it - the module that has the buttons to lock/unlock the truck doors and holds the battery) are one piece.

CHOICE member Daphne told us her Mazda 3 key needed a new battery, and after two attempts to replace it herself she went to her local dealership, which also couldn't open the key. She says the dealership accused her of tampering with the key by gluing it shut after dropping it. When she demonstrated that both the keys she had for the car wouldn't open properly, she was told she'd have to purchase a new key for more than $200.
In many cases these codes are not provided to car owners, and are held either by the dealers or in some cases the manufacturers overseas, effectively locking independent mechanics, auto electricians and auto locksmiths out of the market. Auto locksmiths can't provide a replacement service for some car brands or have to invest in expensive diagnostic equipment to work without the code. This cost is passed on to customers.

Earlier last year, the previous Australian government called for a code of conduct to be established between independent automotive repairers and manufacturers. After a review, the Commonwealth Consumer Affairs Advisory Council urged the automotive industry to "develop, within a reasonable period of time, an outcome (such as a voluntary industry code of conduct) that ensures there is a process for independent repairers to access repair information".
On most modern cars, an electronic key fob (also known as a remote or transmitter) is an integral part of the key set.

They really aren’t keys but key-fob inserted into the car dash or placed wherever which communicates with the vehicle to start by the push of a button.

Now that we have outlined all the necessary steps that you have to consider when you are trying to figure out the car key duplication cost, it’s time for us to take a look at some of the numbers.

In certain states, private citizens can own code cutting and key duplication machines. This type of investment does not make much sense for people who are not security professionals. Also, you will need certain levels of clearance to gain access to programs that enable you to find key codes from the VIN of a vehicle. The most DIY that you could go is to use a file or cutting tool, and measurements to cut a key by hand. Without years of specialty experience, being successful in this way is very unlikely. I would not recommend that you use any DIY methods for car key cutting. There is a lot that could go wrong, and this will potentially create bigger issues than it would solve.

2. The transponder chip that is fitted within the key allows the vehicle to start and can be duplicated in two ways CLONING or PROGRAMMED. Cloning is the most common form of transponder duplication but both forms do require specialist duplication devices. Mister Minit invests in top of the line equipment to ensure your key is duplicated to the highest standard.
As was stated earlier, car key cutting can be done by code. Key codes refer to the numbers and characters that are used by professional locksmiths to fashion or remake keys. This is an integral part of the car key cutting process. There are two main kinds of key codes that locksmiths make use of and these are bitting codes and blind codes. The bitting code refers to the specific numbers or code that a locksmith would use on a blank key whereas the blind code is a key code that employs the use of specialized programs and charts in order to derive the bitting code. The bitting code is also referred to as the direct code while the blind code is also referred to as the indirect code.

Car Key Cutting And Programing


A local locksmith may charge $1.50-$4 for a standard key, but will have a much larger inventory of key blanks than chain or hardware stores, and the employees are usually well-trained on how to copy keys. Costs will vary based on the wholesale price of the specific type of key blank needed, the prevailing local rates and the amount of competition in the area. Copying a luggage key starts around $5-$7 and goes up depending on the brand (and there's often a discount for additional copies of the same key). Duplicating a safe or skeleton key starts around $5-$7 each and goes up, depending on the brand of key blank needed. http://thecarlocksmith.co.uk/carkeycutting/images/Car-Key-Cutting-Honda_78.jpg
I bought a new/used Buick Enclave and the previous owner lost the spare keys and broke the fob. My nephew warned me that replacement fobs only work if I have the dealership program the fob and cut the keys. I required the dealer to program and cut the keys for me for free. They work great and are about $150.00 less than the what the dealership charges for a new set + programming.
These additional features have made it a little bit more complicated to duplicate keys. This is not necessarily a negative thing because it makes it much harder for burglars to take advantage of car owners. Essentially, very few keys are standalone items anymore. More often than not they are paired to a specific vehicle through the use of transponder chips.
Programming tools for coding a new key can cost tens of thousands to initially purchase, with extra ongoing costs associated for licensing and installing new software.  A cost will also be added to cover the time taken for cutting and programming the key. Anything up to one hour can be expected for such a labour fee.  When you take all the factors into consideration and remember whoever is supplying the key will need to make a profit, the price of a replacement car key is often justified. So how much do replacement car keys cost? Probably more than most motorists would expect, but not so much when you fully understand how sophisticated a car key actually is and what’s involved in supplying one.

We've all heard you get what you pay for. As an illustration, Amazon, and eBay offer a bounty of car keys and remotes for sale. Indeed, many reputable items are for sale there, however, knock off and cheap imitations and copies of car keys also are available online. A variety of vehicles particularly, Nissan and Chrysler, have designed "locked" the keys so that they cannot be used with any other cars. Late model vehicles additionally, require special diagnostic tools in most cases to program duplicate keys. There is no doubt that car manufacturers are trying to limit the aftermarket car keys market, however, we're on your side! We do our best to deliver OEM quality car keys and remotes at a fraction of the typical costs of the dealerships. Moreover, we come directly to your location.

It is important to make sure you understand the differences between car key duplication, car key replacement, and transponder key programming. If you are able to identify which service you need, you will be able to get a better picture of what your total cost will be. Car key duplication costs are not as high as their aforementioned counterparts. Hopefully, the costs and points discussed above will help you get a better understanding of the service that you need, while simultaneously giving you some insight about what to expect when you want to duplicate your car keys.
A transponder key's shank is either a basic key or a laser-cut key (more on laser-cut keys later). The major difference between a basic key and a transponder key is that the chip in the transponder key must be programmed before it can start the vehicle. All dealerships have the machines necessary to program the key. Some might program it for free, but others will charge up to an hour of labor. Most auto locksmiths should also have these machines.
Now that we have outlined all the necessary steps that you have to consider when you are trying to figure out the car key duplication cost, it’s time for us to take a look at some of the numbers. Like I have said several times, it is important for you to remember that this is talking about car key duplication, not car key replacement or cutting new keys or any of that.
