Hyundai Accent key replacement

We would like to share with you some information about your Hyundai Accent key. Where can you get a key replacement in case you lost it?
If you lost the key to your car and have no spare, there are two places we recommend you try to get a new key made. The first place will be a Hyundai dealership and the second place will be an automotive locksmith company. The difference between the two will be the prices and the type of services. The dealership will ask you to come in with your drivers license and proof of ownership for your car such as the car title or registration. The locksmith will be able to save you some time by coming to your vehicle location and cutting you a new key on spot.
What we recommend you to do is to shop around for prices and availability between the two.
Sometimes people find it useful to buy the key online when there is no dealership nearby and the locksmith doesn’t have the keys in stock. You can find many stores online. Below, we will share with you the key blank number or part number by the year that you will need to order the key for your Hyundai Accent:

  • If your Hyundai Accent was made in the years 1995, 1996, 1997, 1998, or 1999 , then your key blank number is X235.
  • If your Hyundai Accent was made in the years 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004, or 2005, then your key blank number is X236.
  • If your Hyundai Accent was made in the years 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, or 2011, then your key blank number is HY16-P.

Hyundai Accent spare key

If you just need to duplicate your car key, there are many places you can try such as a Hyundai dealership, a locksmith shop, many hardware stores and even WalMart. One of the hardware stores we recommend you try is Ace Hardware.

Hyundai Accent key wont turn

If your key stops turning your ignition switch, there are two common reasons why this may happen. The first reason is that your key is worn out and even just a small modification will be just enough to make the key stop turning the lock. The second reason can be that one of the parts inside your ignition lock that is known as a wafer, has gotten stuck.

How to fix the problem:

  • The first way we recommend you try to fix the problem is by asking a locksmith or Hyundai dealership to make you a new key by your vehicle’s VIN number. Do not try to just make a copy of your key.
  • The second way we recommend you try to fix the problem, is by asking a locksmith to rekey your ignition lock.

Dodge Nitro Key

Gray color of Jeep key

Where and how can you get a new key fob made for your Dodge Nitro? Where can you get a new key if you lost the key, or just need a key copy? Why doesn’t my ignition switch turn and how do I repair it? Mile High Locksmith ™ is an expert automotive locksmith company and we would like to share some of the commonly asked questions and answers about Dodge Nitro keys and locks.

Information: If you lost the key fob to your Dodge Nitro and you pressed the lock button on the key head before you lost the key, this means you will need to get the same key in order to unlock the security system in your SUV.

If your Dodge Nitro was made in the years 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, or 2014, then you can have one of two different types of keys. You can have just a regular transponder chip key. This key part number is 692352. This key looks like just a regular key with a grey color plastic head and inside the key head there is an invisible electronic chip that has a wireless connection to your SUV. This key can replace the common key fob.
The second key you may have, and the most common key for this vehicle, is a key fob remote. The key fob remote will have push buttons to lock and unlock the SUV, a red panic button, etc.

Dodge Nitro key fob programming
Basically, you have no way to program a key to a Dodge Nitro yourself. You will have to use a professional such as an automotive locksmith company or a Dodge dealership. The difference between the two will be the cost and the type of service. The locksmith will be able to come to your SUV’s location and cut and program the new key for you right on spot by using your Dodge Nitro’s VIN number. The dealership will ask you to bring your SUV in. What we recommend you to do is to shop around for prices between locksmith companies and the dealership.

Dodge Nitro ignition problems

The Dodge Nitro has a common problem along with other cars and SUV’s where the key doesn’t turn the ignition. Most of the time, the problem happens because of the key itself. A second reason this may happen is because one of the parts in the ignition lock has gotten stuck and is preventing the cylinder from turning.

How to fix ignition problems:

  • The first way we recommend you to try to fix the problem is by asking a locksmith company or Dodge dealership to cut you a new key using your SUV’s VIN number. Do not try to just copy the existing key.
  • The second way we recommend you try to fix the problem is by asking a locksmith to rekey your ignition switch.

Ford Windstar Key

Lost Ford key

How and where can you get a new key replacement for your Ford Windstar? Does your car key have a chip inside of it? Did you lose the key or just need a key copy? Mile High Locksmith ™ is an expert automotive locksmith company. We would like to share some of the more common questions we receive from our customers about Ford Windstar locks and keys.

Do you have a problem turning your key in the ignition? We recommend that you make a new key by your SUV VIN number.

Key copy
Ford Windstar has just a simple key. If your Ford Windstar was made between the years 1995 and 1997, then your key has no features and can be copied at many hardware stores, locksmith shops, or even Walmart. If your Ford Windstar was made between the years 1998 and 2003, then your key can be copied only by a professional, such as a locksmith company or the dealership.

Ford Windstar lost key

If you lost the key to your Ford Windstar, the cost of a new key replacement will depend on the year of your SUV. Below, we will share a list of what type of key your Ford Windstar requires and where you can have a new key made.

  • If your Ford Windstar was made in the years 1995, 1996, or 1997, then you have just a simple key with no features. The best place to order a new key replacement will be with a mobile automotive locksmith company. A locksmith will have special tools for making you a new key especially for an older model. From 1995 to 1996 it can be that your Ford Windstar will need two separate keys. One for the ignition and the doors, and one for the trunk and the glove box.
  • If your Ford Windstar was made in the years 1998, 1999, 2000, 2001, 2002, or 2003, then your key has an electronic chip hidden inside the key head. For Ford Windstars from 1998 to 2003, you will need to call a locksmith for new key. For years 2004 and up you will be able to get a new key either with a locksmith company or Ford dealership. The difference between the two will be the price and type of services. The locksmith will be able to make you a new working key at your SUV’s location, when the dealer will ask you to bring the SUV in.

Ford Windstar key won’t turn in ignition

It is a common problem that the Ford Windstar shares with many other vehicles. The key stops turning the ignition switch. Even when it seems that the problem is the ignition lock, you will be surprised to know that the problem can be the key itself. Even just a small modification to the key, (one that you cannot even see with your eyes), will be just enough to cause this problem. A worn out key is the most common reason why the key will not turn in the lock or even damage the ignition.
Making a copy of the defective key will not solve the problem. The best fix for this will be to make a new key by the car’s key code or VIN number. If that doesn’t help, the next thing will be to call a locksmith and ask them to rekey the lock for you.
