Car Lockouts

It can be very frustrating to find yourself locked out of your car. However, it is always wise to call a professional locksmith to help. If you use the wrong method or piece of equipment on your car, you could cause unnecessary damage.

Our experts have a huge number of tools that can be used to regain access, all based on the brand and model of your car.

Your locksmith can choose from various sized wedges, a Slim Jim, a lasso tool, the Japanese tool (so named because it most often used on Japanese branded cars), the Auto Buster and many other specialised tools and pieces of equipment.

The most important thing to remember is that they are all designed to cause zero damage entry.

Rest assured that your auto locksmith will know exactly what tool to use and the correct way to use it, to get the job done in the quickest time.

Locked Keys in Boot

Another very common occurrence is accidentally locking your keys in your boot.

As with traditional car lockouts, it doesn’t matter what make or model your car is. Our trusted technicians are fully equipped to retrieve your keys from your boot.

Usually, the process is the same as a car lockout. We will gain entry to the vehicle through the front door and use the boot release handle.

If this cannot be done because of extra security measures like a deadlock, the process can be trickier. However, there is no need to worry as the talented locksmiths at the Locksmith Boss of Dublin will still have the knowledge required to bypass these added security features. They will just take a little extra time to get deal with.

Most car’s security is never perfect. This isn’t a pleasant thing to think about, but most added security features on cars merely slow down entry. They don’t usually completely prevent it.

This is good for you though, as it means we can usually regain access without the expensive prospect of needing a brand new key cut and programmed.

Car Key Replacement

We can replace your broken or lost key while you wait. You won’t have to go to your main dealer and wait a week or nor will you have to pay their exorbitant fees.

We will drive to meet you wherever you are stranded at any time of the day or night. If your locksmith has exhausted all methods of solving your car lockout and still cannot regain access, then you will need to get a new key made.

All of our company vehicles come equipped with state of the art code machines that can cut keys for any vehicles.

This machine is advanced enough to cut keys without having a duplicate to copy from. This is perfect if you have lost your car keys in Dublin and don’t have any spare car keys available.

It’s always smart to have an extra set of keys at home or stored safely with a friend, just in case you do suffer a car lockout situation again in the future.

The time taken to cut a new key will depend on how complex the key is. This varies based on the car’s manufacturer and the age of the vehicle.

Expert Car Key Cutting in Dublin

Cutting a car key is an extremely common job that we perform for our clients all over Dublin. Our mobile units can also perform this task on-site, using our high-end key cutting mills.

When we cut you a new car key, we only use materials that are as strong as the manufacturers originals. These materials are hard wearing, very difficult to damage and resistant to any weathering and corrosion.

Premier Car Key Repair in Dublin

Has your car key become too worn down to work properly? Or is there a chip or crack in it? If so, we can repair it for you using the machinery in our mobile locksmith units.

Duplicate Car Keys

To duplicate a key, all you need to do is provide the original key to our technician and he will take care of the rest. This process uses a different machine to the others mentioned above. But to be done correctly, the process still requires quite a lot of skill.

Thankfully, our auto locksmiths are all highly experienced in duplicating car keys. For best results, it’s important that you provide the original key to our locksmith and not a copy of the original.

Key Fob Replacement

Many years ago, a key fob was only used for remotely opening and closing all of the doors in your car. But as time has gone by they’ve become even more high-tech. While these key fobs can be useful and provide added security features, it does mean that losing one becomes even more stressful and possibly expensive.

Nowadays, they contain added security features such as chips that deactivate immobilisers, that can be used to prevent someone even starting the car.

For our trusted pros, it doesn’t matter if your key fob is old-school and simply opens and closes your doors, or if it’s a laser key, smart key or has the ability for remote ignition.

If you have lost your fob completely, then the first thing your auto locksmith will do is remove any current fobs from your car’s computer. This means they will no longer work to open the car doors or disable the car’s immobiliser, if it has one.

We can also change the battery in your key fob if required.

Transponder Key Programming

About 20 years ago, car manufacturers began adding small computer chips into their car keys.

When you insert your key, the onboard computer will check the chip’s signature and if it’s a match, the engine will start. This was designed to prevent theft from methods such as a slide hammer attack or hotwiring.

Without that chip the car won’t start, even with the correct key.

Sometimes, the transponder chip in your key can become desynchronized, if this happens it will need specialised diagnostic equipment for car key programming. We can perform this routine service on-site.

Usually, when you cut a new key, you will also carry out the transponder key programming as well. However, in some cases the key may have been cut by someone else and then delivered to your locksmith for transponder programming

As long as the key has a transponder chip in it, then our car locksmiths in Dublin can program your car’s onboard computer to accept the key.

If the previously cut key as no chip in it then that is fine, as we can provide one for you and program it accordingly.

Car Key Extraction

Sometimes after a key has been used many times, it can become brittle and end up snapping in your car’s door lock or ignition. If this has happened to you, then you need a locksmith that knows how to use a broken key extractor tool.

Depending on how far the key is inside the lock, we may also use the probe method. Whichever method or tools we use, as always, we guarantee that no damage will be caused and the job will be completed swiftly.

After extracting the broken key, If you need a new key cut or duplicated, then we can also take care of that for you.

Ignition Cylinder Replacement

There are many different types of ignition problem that you can have. There can be an issue with the ignition switch. It could be worn or there could be a connection problem with the receiver.

Excessive wear on your key or the pins in your ignition cylinder might be preventing the anti-theft devices from being disabled when the key is turned. Thus, your engine cannot start.

Our experienced auto locksmiths in Dublin can replace your ignition lock, ignition lock cylinder or install a completely new cylinder as needed.

These tasks need expert knowledge, as they often require electronics or air bags to be disabled correctly.

Electronic Ignition Switch Repair or Replacement

Our expert car locksmiths can diagnose any problems related to your ignition, with ease. And if required we can replace the ignition switch no problem.

Due to wear and tear, the ignition switch on your vehicle may become worn and damaged. If this happens, it can fail completely, preventing you from turning your car on. We have a quick and easy solution for this problem.

It requires specific knowledge and expertise to properly troubleshoot these problems in an efficient manner. For example, a novice locksmith might mistake a cylinder problem for an issue with the wires running to your car’s starter motor.

We always take great care when carrying out these procedures as sometimes your dashboard an other panels needs to be removed first. By taking our time and paying full attention we can ensure that there is no damage caused.

Electronic Steering Column Lock Repair

This is a common fault that prevents your car from starting. Our expert locksmiths can repair your steering column lock quickly and easily.

Rekey Ignition

Just like with a standard lock, we can also rekey your ignition for you. This process results in your ignition only working with a new key.

There are two main reasons you might wish to do this.

The first is that this course of action can be more affordable than replacing the cylinder for your ignition entirely. Although it’s important to note that often this is not possible and full ignition replacement is the only solution.

However, much more commonly, with a replacement ignition, it will only work with a new key that comes packaged with the ignition.

But this new key will not work on the exterior door and boot locks. This means you’d need two keys for your car. The fastest option instead of rekeying all your exterior locks is to just rekey your ignition instead.

Ignition Barrel Repair

This is yet another high quality service that we can offer using our mobile units. And we can do it both faster and cheaper than your local garage can.
