Top Auto Locksmith related questions

Most likely, they won’t. This is because auto locksmiths have several methods that won’t cause any damage to your car. These include using a slim jim, wedge, or jiggler - so instead of breaking your car’s window, request a local auto locksmith through Airtasker. You’ll get into your vehicle and avoid any unnecessary damage. 

This depends. Usually, if what you need is an ordinary key (for cars made before 1954) or a transponder key, the auto locksmith may be able to create a new car key even without the original. Note that they will ask for your Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) and proof of ownership before they cut and program a new key for you. 

Yes, though it will depend on the type of locking mechanism your vehicle has. Some methods include using a shoelace, coat hanger, or a rod and screwdriver. You can also take a page out of an auto locksmith’s book and use a slim jim or a wedge. While results may vary, a sure-fire way to open the door without a key is to contact an automotive locksmith near you.

Rekeying is more budget-friendly than changing the locks of your car. This is because rekeying only involves a bit of labour on the part of the auto locksmith. Changing locks, on the other hand, requires labour and parts. Either way, you can use Airtasker to find a locksmith who can do these tasks for you. And that’s not all! Our platform can also help you find car detailing experts to see to your other automobile needs. 

Yes, you can definitely try rekeying a lock yourself. To do this, you’ll need a rekeying kit specific to your car’s model, make, and year. This kit includes several keys and tools that will help you change how the lock works without dismantling the entire lock mechanism. But while you can DIY a rekeying job, it’s safer (and faster) to ask a local auto locksmith instead. 

First, locate the screws on your steering column, unscrew them, and remove the plastic trim. This exposes the ignition switch. Remove the bolts and screws connecting the ignition switch to the steering column to unlock the steering wheel. Then, remove the screws connecting the wires and mechanical part of the ignition. Finally, insert a Phillips-head screwdriver into the keyhole and turn it as if it were a key. If this doesn’t work, consider booking a driver instead.

What do auto locksmith services include?

When you book an auto locksmith through Airtasker, you can expect to work with someone who can help you with matters related to your car keys and locks. So before you panic over locking your keys in the boot, a broken key fob, or a key that’s stuck in the ignition, request a nearby car key locksmith through our platform. 

The following is a list of what you can typically expect an auto locksmith to cover:

Unlocking a car without the keys

If you’ve accidentally locked your keys in your car or misplaced them, a Tasker will use a variety of methods to open your car without damaging it. These include using a slim jim, wedges, Japanese Tool, or Auto Buster. 

If the keys are in the trunk, getting your keys back may be as simple as using the manual boot release or techniques that can temporarily override your trunk’s security (at least, long enough for you to get the keys). 

Key duplication or replacement

A local auto locksmith usually offers these services as well. When you request key duplication, they’ll use an existing key (preferably the original) and cut a duplicate. If you’re using a transponder key or smart key, this step may be followed by a bit of programming. These keys are designed to “respond” to the technology in your car.  

As for the key replacement, this may take a bit longer, depending on the type of car and car key you have. 

Fob replacement & transponder programming

Have you accidentally damaged your key fob or transponder key? Want to replace it to prevent unauthorized access? An auto locksmith can help. When you request key fob replacement through our platform, the car key locksmith will typically replace the fob, remove existing fobs from the car’s computer, and program your new fob so that it is the only one that your vehicle will respond to.  

Transponder programming is similar in the sense that your auto locksmith will do a bit of programming after cutting the new key. You can also request the Tasker to disable all existing transponder keys so that only the new key will work. 

Extracting snapped keys

Suppose your car key gets stuck in a lock or snaps off unexpectedly while in the ignition switch; an auto locksmith can help. They may use special extraction tools and lubricant to retrieve the broken key. After this, you can request a new key or even ask the locksmith to fox the wonky lock or ignition.

Ignition repair

If your keys open the doors but won’t start the vehicle, it may be time to consult an auto locksmith. They may replace the ignition lock, the ignition lock cylinder, or the ignition switch. Or, you can opt to have them rekey your ignition, which can be easier than replacing the entire ignition cylinder (or using a separate key for your doors or starting your car).  

If these fixes still don’t work, consider contacting a mobile mechanic or car service specialist near you.

I have two bedrooms doors which needs some works. First door need to install the door knob but not sure if anything is missing in the sets coz its purchased a while ago. Second door the door knob is not installed properly so cannot be closed.

Nasser is too good to be true. He is very skillful and professional, also very friendly. I would not hesistate to recommend him to anyone who needs a carpenter. I hired him for an old door knob installation task today. He thought outside of the box and offered an alternative better solution. He even returned to his car and brought back extra tools required for the task. He delivered an outstanding service and definitely exceeded my expectation. I haven't seen such a kind person like Nasser for a long time in London. Thank you again Nasser for solving my issues quickly and perfectly, so I can enjoy my new home with all internal doors working fine now.
