How do I find a locksmith and how much does it cost?

When you have a vehicle that does not have an onboard programming procedure for a remote or key then you need to go to a qualified locksmith. By qualified we mean an automotive locksmith - someone who has the proper equipment and knowledge to program vehicles to accept new keys and remotes.

There is a website called www.autolocksmithfinder.com where you can find a locksmith near your zip code.

Every locksmith has their own ideas about pricing. Key cutting usually costs $2-$25, depending on the type of key. Key and remote programming can range in cost between $25 and $125, depending on what tools and software the locksmith owns for your vehicle. Lockouts are usually from $50-$100. Key extraction and re-keying locks vary too greatly to state a range, If you have no working key to copy, it could add $10-$100 extra if the locksmith orders the key code by VIN rather than using other techniques to learn the key code.
