I lost all the keys to my car. I'm going to get a new key and for it to be programmed to my car it'll be $150 including the new key(plus i have to pay for towing over to the dealership) I'm considering just getting all my locks changed instead. I have a scion tc how much will that run?How much does it cost to change the locks on a car?
A lot more than the new key. Programming new keys will prevent the lost ones from starting the vehicle. If your replace the locks, you will still have to have the new keys programmed.How much does it cost to change the locks on a car?
the ignition switch with key can be purchased at your local parts store for about $15.00. a repair shop will charge you on average $50-100 to install, the steering wheel %26amp; inner horn mechanism must be removed %26amp; requires specific tools. you can do this yourself if you are determined %26amp; mechanicly adept. a haynes manual shows this in detail, pick one up at your parts store, very handy. a lock smith can rekey your door locks for about $20-30 per door.

What good would it do to %26quot;change the locks%26quot;?? you still have to buy keys with the new locks! And have them programmed. Does this car still have a real key? (that you put in the ignition and turn?) so many cars now have keyless entry and start. the Toyota dealer should be able to get the key number from the company and make a key to fit. Maybe they have a record of the program code too.How much does it cost to change the locks on a car?
Just get a key made when you program it have the old key cleared. I would call a locksmith instead of paying to have the car towed the locksmith will come to you.How much does it cost to change the locks on a car?
$150.00 to $250.00 per lock!
Don't forget the ignition lock as well.
New key would be a lot cheaper.
