Depending on the type of lock and key system as well as the age, make and model of your vehicle, an auto locksmith can provide you with a working replacement of a physical car key or a reprogrammed key fob.

How much is a replacement car key for an old car?
Replacement car keys for older cars might only cost around $5-10. Generally, cars manufactured prior to 1981 have a standardized physical key with no electronic components, so a qualified auto locksmith can do the job quickly and with little effort.

How much is a replacement car key for a new car?
Replacement car keys for newer car makes and models can cost anywhere from around $50-$100 or more. Since 1981, car manufacturers began implementing many new electronic lock and key systems. Transponders, key fobs, and keyless entry are all relatively standard, which requires more labor and skill to produce a replacement car key.
