What You Need To Know for a Car Key Replacement
Having the right information at hand is the best way you can guarantee to swiftly get your replacement car keys and

1. Key Code
The key code is a code a valuable series of numbers and letters, from the lock manufacturer, which specifies which
key will open the lock. Your vehicle’s key code is usually stored in your owner’s manual or another car document. If
you can’t find it, you can obtain it from your dealership. Just present a proof of ownership retrieve the code, which
can usually be done for free.

provided, your car’s Stealth Immobiliser will prevent its engine from running. This works to protect your car from
theft, even when a copy of your keys has been used. Your pin, if unchanged, can also be found in your owner’s manual.
And, just like your key code, you can also get it free of charge from your dealership.
The vehicle identification number or VIN is a unique code given to each motor vehicle during its manufacture. It
consists of 17 characters, usually used to track recalls, registrations, warranty claims, thefts, and insurance
