Thirty years ago, if you locked yourself out of your car, you would call a trusted locksmith and have them come out and cut you a new key. As auto keys in Orlando started to advance, however, those simple metal keys started to become more and more complicated. Today’s car key fobs don’t just unlock your doors with a push of a button, but they can even start your engine. So, with such sophisticated car keys, is it still possible to call a locksmith if you lose yours?
The good news is that, yes, today’s locksmiths have the equipment necessary to get your electronic keys up and working again. The difference is that there is much more to it than before.
