We stock the largest range of automotive key blanks out of any locksmith in rural Queensland, allowing us to build you a key on the spot, rather than making you wait until we get them in stock. Most cars built prior to 1996 will not require diagnostic locksmithing as the vehicle keys won’t be fitted with transponders, which allows for a new key to be cut much easier. If you have a newer car, we may need to clone your key, or program your car diagnostically to recognize a new key.

Diagnostic Locksmithing:

For those with newer vehicles, different techniques may be required. Should you want a spare key, we can clone your existing key and the vehicle won’t be able to tell the difference. If you’ve lost your keys and the car is reprogrammed, the stolen key may still work because it is a clone and the vehicle can’t differentiate between the two keys. However, a diagnostically programmed key ha a unique identification, meaning that after a key is lost or stolen and the vehicle is reprogrammed the lost or stolen key will not start the car. We’ll get your vehicle to recognise the new keys and forget about the old ones to prevent any chance of theft.

We are frequently investing our resources into the latest software and manufacturing techniques that vehicle manufacturers use with their increasingly complex security systems. Furthermore, our replacement key housings are available in numerous colours and shapes if you want the look of an OEM-style replacement at a much cheaper price point than the dealer will offer. Please give us a call with the year, make and model of your car for a precise quote.
