High Security Keys
Also known as laser cut keys
Vehicle's such as Honda's started using high security/Laser cut keys from 2003 and in 2012 most car manufacturers switched over to laser cut keys as well.
Hi security car keys were made in order to make it more difficult to pick or decode the lock and to prevent car thefts.
Most laser cut keys come with a chip built in to add even more security.
Most locksmith companies in Corona deter from these sophisticated key machines because they're more difficult to operate and cost a lot more than standard key duplicating machines.

Repair & Replace Auto Locks
A cars door lock mechanism has a simple design BUT, numerous rods are attached to that same mechanism.
some rods are connected to the power windows so when you unlock your car twice the window will come down, or when you unlock twice it'll unlock the rest of your car's doors.
With time, these rods become more difficult to move and they create pressure on the door lock.
either the key breaks at this point or the rods jam.
Most car door and trunk cylinders can be replaced or repaired and rekeyed to the original Key that came with the car.
Keys and Locksmith Corona can assist you with repairing or replacing your Automotive locks.
Transponder Chip Keys
Whats a transponder key?
transponder keys (chipped keys) were made so even if a thief tried breaking the ignition switch or hot-wiring the car he wont be able to steal it.
The key is programmed to the car and only that key will be able to start the car.
even if you cut another key with a chip in it but don't program it to the car, the car won't start.
Some cars have a "push to start" mechanism, meaning there is no key. however that fob still has a chip that needs to be programmed to your car.

Emergency Trunk Opening
"Locked the keys in my trunk, what do i do?"
First let's understand why trunk lockouts are difficult.
Most car manufacturers make the trunks act as a safe, so when you go out you can leave your purse or bags in the trunk, and if a thief breaks your window and tries to pop your trunk he won't be able too, only a key or remote will work.
Security wise its a really nice feature and gives you an ease of comfort knowing that your goods are safe in the trunk of your car.
However, if you locked the keys in your trunk and the trunk acts as a safe....it makes it really difficult to open it back up.
It can be so frustrating when you shut the trunk and then realize you locked the keys in there.
at this point we have a few ways to get the trunk of your car open, however there are a few car manufacturers that the only way to get the trunk open is by making a key.
At Keys and locksmith Corona we will always try to go with a cheaper route to open the trunk, and leave making the key as a last resort.
Our car locksmith technicians are equipped with top of the line lock decoders, lock picks, car computers and special trunk lockout tools to assist with most situations.
