  4. Regardless of how you get a replacement key, be sure to have your Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) handy

How much do locksmiths charge to make a replacement car key if you do not have the original?

If you’re looking to get a new car key made, the cost will vary depending on the make and model of your vehicle. Generally speaking, key replacement can range anywhere from $50 to $500. To get an exact estimate, it’s best to consult with a professional locksmith or dealership.

Keep in mind that if you don’t have the original key, you may need to get your car towed to the locksmith or dealership. This is because they will need to disassemble part of your vehicle in order to create a new key. However, if you have the original key, this shouldn’t be necessary.
