Timpson's are cheap sometimes for certain keys. Normal place is Morton "Lock & Keys Master" (LKM).

Some keys are a horrendous price, some are cheap, even for the same car - some years they have different systems.

I've had to pay 150 for a lost replacement Ford key. Half of it was for a procedure that took M53 Ford all of 30 seconds! It is a rip off.

New cars are as often as not supplied with only one remote key these days. If you are buying a new car, it is well worth demanding two keys just as you are about to sign the deal and be prepared to walk away if you don't get it. Don't worry, they will catch you up in the car park and agree to your demand, and if not, there are plenty of other dealers.

Does it NEED reprogramming?
The key to my Vauxhall went goofy (the spring out blade stopped springing). lOOKERS wanted a hundred and somethings to provide a replacement AND then all needed reprogramming - two hundred and something.

All that was really needed was a replacement for the little spring that activated the blade

I bought a "blank" replacement from China for the huge sum of 4.90 and it arrived in two weeks. I removed the blade from the original key and fitted it into the new unit with the new spring. Then I removed the elctronic "bits" - easy, they are all on a board and put those in the new unit.

Connect up and - done. Been using it now for 2 years no problems

Cheers Snod. Actually after a second key. Only have one which works fine but was after a spare ...price dependant of course. Been quoted 110 but can get a uncut key off ebay for around 15 just a matter of coding it. Youtube throws up a few simple steps to code it for the locks but not sure about the ignition.

It all depends which make of car.

Also, beware of buying blank keys off Ebay. They won't always contain the chip which needs coding (Google "ID46 chip"), and most locksmiths won't touch Ebay keys because the cheap metal damages their cutters.

Its normally the car's computer that needs programming to match the chip (or accept a new chip).

While some chips can be cloned, sometimes this doesn't work out in the long term.
