Eagle keys replacement near me – Things to remember before calling a locksmith or dealer

Calling an automotive locksmith or a dealer near your location when you need a key replacement is probably the most common thing to do. Based on your location, an automotive locksmith can come to you, or you may choose to tow the car to the dealer.

We outline a few points to remember, to help you save some time and money regardless of which option you choose:

  1. First, always ask for a quote. Describe the problem in detail and give the automotive locksmith all the details, even if you think they may not be relevant.
  2. Moreover, If the locksmith has all the details, it can speed up the process and make it more cost-effective. Remember to give them your exact location to prevent a long waiting period. It may also affect the price.
  3. In addition, tell the locksmith/dealer if the ignition was changed before, as far as you know. A previous ignition change may result in different keys for the ignition and doors.
  4. Most Eagle models are very old and therefore key codes may not be available. Ask the locksmith if they can cut a key without a code.
  5. In addition, it’s important to have the VIN number available as the locksmith may need it.
  6. Finally, remember that for most Eagle models, there is no need to tow the car to the dealer should you lose your car keys. You can try and call the AAA, or an automotive locksmith who should be able to make you a new car key on site.

FAQ Lost Eagle Keys Replacement:


Q: Eagle key replacement cost – How much does it cost to replace an Eagle key without the original? What is the average price?

Eagle key replacement cost - Price depends on a few factors

A: In short, to replace an Eagle key usually cost between $60-$250. It depends on a few factors:

  1. Type of key
  2. The year manufactured
  3. Time of day & your location
  4. Where you get a key replacement (Dealer, automotive locksmith, online, etc)
  5. Availability of code to cut a new key
  6. Original ignition or not

The type of key you had and the year the car was manufactured are maybe the most important factors.

In addition,

It depends on where you get a key replacement. The dealer, automotive locksmith or get it online. Click here to get a more detailed explanation.

The dealer usually charges about 10%-15% less than a locksmith would for the key. However, most chances you will have to tow the car there to program the new key or remote and therefore the total price is usually higher.


Consider that if you are looking to have a locksmith to come out and make you a new key outside regular business hours, the price may go up.


In case your Eagle ignition cylinder was changed before (usually with older cars), that probably means that the code for the key may not be useful and the key will have to be either cut manually by a locksmith or to change the ignition again which in this case the dealer can’t be of help.

Q: How can I know if my Eagle key had a chip in it? I understand that some keys need to be programmed and some don’t?

A: A good rule of thumb is that a key that had a plastic cover at the top and/or the was made after the year 1998, most chances had a chip in it.

Hence, in case you lost your Eagle key and the key had a chip in it, it will have to be programmed on-site in order to start the car.

An automotive locksmith for Eagle keys replacement can do that on-site. Alternatively, you can contact the dealer, but the car will have to be towed there.

Q: Can I get an Eagle key replacement by VIN?

A: That depends on the year of your car and the type of key you had.

The VIN allows the dealer or an automotive locksmith the option to access the key code on file, i.e. to cut you a replacement key by code which makes the process very fast and easy. There are however two things to consider:

  1. For vehicles older than 10 years: Eagle dealers don’t keep a record for vehicles older than 10 years. Therefore, an automotive locksmith is your only option to get a replacement key.
  2. For vehicles equipped with a transponder system and/or remote/ intelligent key/ fob key: Codes are available. However, programming is necessary and therefore you will have to either tow the car to the dealer or have an automotive locksmith come and program the key on site.

Q: Can you explain why there is a difference in the cost of replacement keys between Eagle models? What would be the price for a newer model at the dealer VS an automotive locksmith?

A: The price for Eagle key replacement varies according to the year of manufacture and the model. Since Eagle had only one type of key – non-transponder, the price varies depends on code availability.

Non-transponder replacement key cost –

Eagle non-chip transponder car key replacement (Y159)

Eagle non-chip transponder car key replacement (Y159)

From a Dealer –

If no coding is needed, you can call the dealer and have him cut you a new replacement key, which you can pick up at your convenience.

However, if the ignition was changed in the past, as may happen with older models, the codes the dealer has on file will not work and so the key won’t turn in the ignition.

It is also important to remember that the dealer only has codes on file for the original ignition and up to a certain year.  If the car is too old, it may be difficult to get a replacement key from the dealer.

Estimated cost: Usually around $60 for a new key.


From an Automotive Locksmith:

A locksmith usually charges a service fee plus the cost of the parts and labor for a replacement key.

You can therefore expect to pay more than the dealer would charge. However, since the cost of a non-transponder chip key is minor, you shouldn’t pay much more than the dealer charge and you have the convenience of a solution at your location as many locksmiths offer a mobile service.

Estimated cost: Usually around $130.

Q: I called my Eagle dealer as I need a replacement key for my 1996 Eagle Talon. Unfortunately, they told me they can’t make me a replacement key as they don’t have the information on file. Can you explain why is that, where can I get a replacement key and how much should it cost?

A: Yes. Eagle dealers, like other car brand dealer, use a code to cut a replacement key. These types of codes are available only for limited years, usually about 10 years or so.

Therefore, if your Eagle model is older than ten years ago, you may have a problem getting a replacement key from the dealer. In this case, an automotive locksmith would be your best option. The estimated cost should be around $125.
