What to do when your Dodge car key is lost and how to get a replacement:
- First, make sure you don’t have a spare key. Many times we put a key somewhere just for this day when we will lose our key and forget about it.
- In addition, if you decided to call an automotive locksmith, remember to provide the exact year, make and model, e.g. “I lost my keys to my 2011 Dodge Charger, 2013 Dodge Durango, 2014 Dodge Magnum, 2015 Dodge Ram” etc. This is important so the locksmith will know he or she has the right key blank.
- Furthermore, always ask if the key needs to be programmed, i.e Lost Dodge key fob or 2010 Dodge Durango needs to be programmed, whereas 1998 Dodge Caravan doesn’t.
- In case you need a new ignition, make sure you tried getting a new key first. Changing the ignition for Dodge cars is more expensive and it will result in a different key for the doors and ignition.
- Furthermore, before calling the dealer to get a replacement Dodge key, ask if you can pick up the new key, or have to tow the car there.
- In addition, when the key won’t turn in the ignition, mention if this is something that just happened for the first time or is it an ongoing problem.
- Moreover, mention if the ignition was changed before. It may prevent from a locksmith or the dealer cut you a new key by code.
- Finally, make sure you have the VIN of the car and relevant documents to show ownership of the car. The title, registration, ID etc.
