Before contacting us at Smart Locksmith, we will like to encourage you to examine the situation just to save even more time. In most cases, your car key is not working based on the following issues;

Key Fob Battery Issues and Damaged Key

If you can’t figure the reason why your car door is not opening, we do recommend that you check the batteries. If the batteries in the key fob are dying or running out of juice, then your car door may not open remotely. Most car owners don’t bother to check their key fob batteries before contacting a professional locksmith technician. If you check your key fobs, perhaps you will save yourself some time and money.

Similarly, the damaged key may be the reason your car doors can’t open. Over time, traditional car keys will wear out and require an outright replacement. Traditional car keys are often abused, they are thrown inside the pocket, wallet and even empty compartments inside the car. Keys also drop on the hard surface floor several times and these issues result in chipping, bending and even breaking, thus rendering them useless. Please contact a professional locksmith for a reliable key replacement service.
