Smart Key

It is NOT POSSIBLE to program keys remotely. Both you and the car itself must be here at our shop in Berkeley, California

Every day we get callers from around the country about smart key. Sorry, but you’ll need to bring the car to Berkeley, CA for us to register a new smart key. As of today (2020), there is no way to clone a smart key. Both the car and the key must be in the same location at the same time to program a key, or more accurately, program the key to the car and the car to the key. Data is written to both during the registration.

That was the bad news. The good news is that if you’re in Berkeley or the East Bay, we can usually make a key for far less than a dealership. We’re also licensed locksmith, so we can make you a new key even if you’ve lost all of your keys.

We make smart keys for Toyota, Honda, Subaru, Mazda, and Nissan cars only.
