Here are a few commonly asked questions about replacing car keys:

How much does it cost to replace a car key?

The price to replace a car key can vary based on the type of key needed. The cost can range from under $50 for a basic key to over $500 for a more advanced key fob replacement at the dealership. There are basic key replacements, but then there are more intricately designed car keys, such as transponder keys, laser-cut keys, switchblade keys, and keyless entry remotes.

How can I get a replacement key for my car?

Your local dealership will always be the best place to get a key replacement for your car. The prices will be a little higher than a hardware store, for example, but you’re guaranteed that the dealer will know how to craft the right key for your vehicle.

Does AutoZone replace car keys?

Yes, AutoZone does replace car keys, though the key and key fob might be made of generic parts and won’t look identical to the ones that came with the car. That said, AutoZone can be an inexpensive alternative to a key replacement from a dealership.

Can you get a key made for a car with the VIN?

Yes, you can get a key made for a car with its VIN, though you’ll also need to show proof of ownership to the locksmith service. On some newer vehicles, the vehicle must be present when the key is cut, so you wouldn’t be able to order a key online, for example.
