Car Electrics & Key Programming
As part of our comprehensive range of services, we offer thorough car key programming to all vehicles throughout Finchley and North London. A law has been in place since the mid-1990’s that states that all private vehicles be fitted with an anti-theft immobilizer. This means that cars will not start unless the key specially programmed for that vehicle is used in the ignition. The system uses a transponder chip that communicates with the car’s engine control unit (ECU). This ensures that only specified keys will work. Moreover, this is often extended to door locks and remote control access.
When new keys are cut for a car, this key programming must be carried out. Our experts at French Car Specialists have both the skill and equipment to provide this service. We provide or service at a highly competitive rate. We are also able to provide key reprogramming for faulty or defective keys. This gets you back on the road again in no time. For more information, or to schedule a car key programming, get in touch or drop by our garage today. Please note: for security reasons, we require proof of vehicle ownership before performing key reprogramming.
