Key by VIN

Important Note:

We do NOT cut or program customer supplied blanks, chip keys, remotes, or key fobs that are not purchased from us. This includes blanks or remotes purchased online.

Lost your only key? Need a car key replacement? How about a replacement remote car key? We can help! We can come to you and make a car key by the VIN number for the vehicles listed below. We have signed agreements with the vehicle manufacturers that give us access to their key databases.

There are four requirements for us to be able to make the key by VIN for your vehicle:

  1. Is the vehicle listed below? We do not perform any work or make keys to the general public for the following vehicles: BMW, Jaguar, Land Rover, Mercedes, Saab, or Volvo. For those vehicles, you must contact the appropriate dealer.

  2. Are you the owner of the vehicle and is your name listed on the registration or on a bill of sale? The registered owner must be present with a matching valid drivers license (State ID and Passports are NOT acceptable) to sign a release form for the vehicle manufacturer granting us authority to make the key.

  3. Are all of the locks, immobilizer, transponders, doors, steering column, etc.factory original (have not been replaced)?

  4. Are you within our service area? We service Indianapolis, Greenwood, Fishers, Carmel, Noblesville, Zionsville, and Westfield. Our Traverse City location services Traverse City only at this time.

If you can answer all the above with “yes”, we can help you!

We do not perform any work or make keys for public customers for the following vehicles: BMW, Jaguar, Land Rover, Mercedes, Saab, or Volvo

Purchases of keys made by VIN code are non refundable.  Keys cut by VIN are tested in front of the customer to make sure they work, we do not charge the key by VIN lookup fee if the key doesn't work.
We will quote you the final price on the phone before coming to make the key. Our quoted price on the phone is the final price including programming if needed, and there are no additional or hidden charges.

Important Note:

Please note that we cannot cut, program, or warranty customer provided remotes, fobs, keys, or key blanks that are not purchased from us, give out key codes or PIN codes, or access the factory databases without a signed release form. Our agreements with the manufacturers prohibit us from providing the PIN, key code and programming information to the public. 

If you have replaced your vehicle locks, transponders, immobilizer, or ignition control modules with parts not installed by the factory (at a junkyard, auto parts store, mechanic, locksmith, etc.) the above PIN/programming lookup process will not work (as we can't look up your information, and the factory info for your vehicle will not match the aftermarket parts) and we cannot make a key for the vehicle. We do not under any circumstances mail keys made by this process or make keys for a third party.
