NYC Car Keys, which is a 24/7 FAST EMERGENCY LOCKSMITH SERVICE, offers the following services in the Upper West Side area:

Replace Car Locks

Removing the locks located on the car in order to operate for a different set of keys.

Ignition/Transponder Keys

The chip in transponder keys emits a signal to a receiver in the ignition. If this “immobilizer” detects the wrong signal — meaning that the wrong key is in the ignition — the vehicle will not start.

High Security/Laser Cut Keys

These keys have built-in built-in transponder chips and they need to be programmed at the dealership or by a locksmith. Laser (sidewinder) style keys can be cut and programmed for all makes and models.

Car Lockout/Opening

Utilizing specific auto entry tools including lock picks and wedges, cars can be opened seamlessly and quickly.

Emergency Trunk Opening

Trunks of any make or model with broken locks or lost keys can be opened.

Key Repair

Damaged keys, or keys that have been compromised by getting stuck or locked in the lock/ignition of vehicle can be repaired.

“When my husband went out of town with our car keys, I realized I’d left some important medication in the glove compartment of our car. I needed to get into my car, but didn’t want to have to go through the hassle of getting locks or keys replaced. I called NYC Car Keys and Mark performed an emergency lockout service on my car, safely getting me inside so I could get my meds.” – Doris H., New York City
