The Key Guys are the “Map” as the Twin Cities “Car Locksmiths”

Google My Map features The Key Guys as Car Locksmiths in 117 Twin City cities

The Key Guys have been providing car locksmith service throughout the Minneapolis St Paul metro area for over two decades now. They recently put together a Google My Map to show the 117+ metro area cities they serve.

It is a pretty impressive reach serving well over 3 million area residents with 24/7 365 day emergency automotive locksmith services.

“We come to You” takes on more meaning when folks see how broad an area we try to service, says owner Brian Nystrom. We have a small fleet of vans servicing the area. Whenever possible we try to get to emergency situations as fast as possible.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

“When someone gets stranded without their car keys – because they were lost or stolen – it can be a pretty helpless situation,” Brian continues. They could go to the expense of having their car towed to a dealer or service station and then pay not only the cost of new keys but the tow as well.

A better plan is to call The Key Guys. We will come to you in your location, at home, work or shopping and cut new keys for you on the spot. “That saves you money,” says Brian.

Even more money when you realize that The Key Guys main customers are the very service station and car dealerships you may otherwise have your car towed to. “We may well still get the business, but you will pay more as the dealer will add their markup to our fee.”

So a word to the wise, don’t loose your car keys – they are more expensive to duplicate these days – and if you do – remember to call, The Key Guys.

The key guys were very professional on the phone and quick to respond to my urgent need for a key for my vehicle. The price that I was quoted over the phone was a lot less than the dealership. Brian was able to come out to my home, saving me extra money having to tow my vehicle to a shop or dealership. Saved a lot of money because of the key guys!

Chip Keys, Transponder Key Programmer, Replacement Car Keys with Chips – Minneapolis St Paul Car Key Locksmith

Transponder Chip Car Keys Cost More – What’s That All About?

Have you ever scratched your head, wondering why your car key replacement costs more than the regular locksmith job?

It’s for your car’s extra security.

Most car models in the market now use what we call transponder, or chip, keys that needs to be programmed.  These car key transponders were implemented by car manufacturers to lessen the risk of car theft, which eventually became an issue with the insurance companies back in the 1990s.  But the technology dates back to World War II, to identify friendly planes.  And they

are also used in modern aviation.

Before the chip keys, car makers and locksmiths only had to make sure the keys are cut to fit your locks and ignition.  With transponder keys, not only does it have to fit, the keys have to be programmed to respond correctly to disarm the car’s immobilizer system in order start it.

How does it work?

The head of the car key has a transponder chip that emits low-level signal that will be detected by a receiver around the ignition cylinder.  Once you turn the key, coded signals will be exchanged and the computer authenticates the response if it is the car’s real key.  This significantly reduced the incidence of stealing cars by hot-wiring or using duplicate keys, as the car will not start if it doesn’t receive the correct response from the correct auto transponder key.

Programming the transponder key.

Each car model has its own programming method, so it can be pretty tricky.  But it only take a few minutes and it can be done with just the keys, or at the car itself.  In some cases the procedure is longer because some machines are built in with authentication period or there is a waiting time.

 

For transponder car key replacements and programming, the key must be blank – no cuts and no programming done on it yet.  Be careful of secondhand keys because it is almost impossible to recut it and you cannot reprogram it for another car.

Car Keys Won’t Turn? Car Keys Stuck?

Car Keys Stuck? Car Keys Won’t Turn?

It can be a frustrating experience when you try to turn on your car and the car key won’t turn in the ignition. Worse yet, when the you discover that the car keys stuck in the ignition and you cannot get it out.

The solution in the Minneapolis – St Paul Metro area is to call The Key Guys  612-370-7677.

The Keys Guys will dispatch a van to your location and fix the situation.

If need be, they will make your car keys new again, as they are the go to service for auto dealers, service stations and car rental agencies in the are when they want car keys made. and they will do it for you as well.

Car keys can get twisted over time from constant use and the simple twisting motion made by turning your engine on.  Coupled with the tendency to use our car keys as pry levers and for other purposes from time to time, we can damage the keys without realizing it.

Your keys really should be cared for these days as they are far more complicated than in the past, and really should only be used for their primary purpose to access and turn on your car.

The Key Guys can remove stuck keys from your doors as well as your ignition, and if possible will repair them. But if needs be, they can replace them on the spot.

And their prices are reasonable. Less than the dealer would charge, and best yet you will not need to have your car towed to the dealer or service station as we will come to you.
