Online Car Keys:

Buyer Beware, when you’re buying keys online for your car, just be super careful.

A B.C. woman’s $30 online order with a 3rd-party seller on Amazon turns into $436 vehicle bill.

A lady bought two shells Online Car Keys for her 2009 Mazda five for $30. Unfortunately, the Amazon third-party reseller said no programming required on the product description. She adds the parts from her old keys to the new car key shells. The new shells would open and lock her car but they would not start the car. Furthermore her old keys now no longer will start the car.

First of all, the shells are not going to operate the car unless you have two operating keys that will start the car. Also, you have to transfer all the electronic parts including the transponder or chop into new shells.

The dealer and locksmiths charge $50 to $225+ to supply one new key. Programming is extra. The dealer and locksmiths charge $350-$450+ to supply and program two new keys that will start the car.

So how would you think you can buy two online for $30? However, in this case, she’s the advertisement said no programming required. She bought the shells, moved everything over to the shells and it wouldn’t start the car. And apparently, it was a flip key that she bought. So she bought a flip key and she moved the bits and pieces from her old keys to her new flip key. The most common problems we run across with customer supplied keys is the wrong key, the wrong remote. Sometimes it doesn’t even come with it. They bought a shell there’s nothing in a shell. So they realize there’s nothing inside half the time. There are no batteries, the batteries are wrong. There are numerous problems. So how can we say now are our supplied keys we know are gonna work or a dealer supply keys know that it’s gonna work. However, when you’re buying off a third-party it’s “Buyer Beware.”

I do not know any reputable automotive locksmith that will say we can program any and all car kesy that the customer supplies, because we just have so many problems with them. So yes, we attempt to program some of them. And some of them we just say no way and some we say, “Hey, let’s give it a try”. And I’m even amazed, sometimes that inexpensive key will actually work quite well, but here’s another problem. Some of the chips inside, have to have a battery for the transponder to work, to start your car.

When the battery dies, some of the remotes you buy online or the keys lose their memory. So if the battery goes dead or whatever, or it just malfunctions. Some of these fobs are so cheap and useless. They do not even last a month. So I don’t know why. And some of them are just breaking left, right and center. This is a good one. You know, it’s, it’s almost original or OEM. And a lot of times we use original keys as well, or the same company that supplies it to the car. Companies have the aftermarket keys that we use. But many many times we don’t buy the stuff that is just total garbage, because of too many problems with callbacks, they do not work, they lose their programming.
