  • Moreover, if you have previously changed the ignition cylinder, tell the locksmith or dealer as it may prevent them from cutting you a new key by code.
  • Finally, make sure you have the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) of the car and relevant documents to show ownership of the car. The title certificate, registration papers, your ID and proof of insurance, etc.

Genesis key replacement near me – things to remember before calling a locksmith or 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. 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.
  2. 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.

  3. All Genesis models are equipped with chips or transponders, so make sure you mention the exact year, make and model and ask the locksmith if they have the necessary tools in their truck to code the key fob. Not all locksmiths have a key coding machine to program those keys.

  4. In addition, it’s important to have the VIN number available as the locksmith may need it.
  5. Finally, remember that for most Genesis models, there is no need to tow the car to the dealer should you lose your car keys. An automotive locksmith should be able to make you a new car key on site.

Q: Genesis key replacement cost – How much will it cost to replace a Genesis key without the original? What is the average price?

The answer below is a short explanation. For a more detailed explanation and GREAT TIPS on how to save money, please visit our blog post: Car keys replacement cost

Genesis key replacement cost - Estimate

Genesis key replacement cost – Estimate

A: In a nutshell, to replace a Genesis key can cost anywhere between $280 and $440. The price you pay depends on several factors:

  1. The type of key
  2. The car’s year of manufacture
  3. The day of the week, the time of day (or night!) & your location
  4. Where you get the key replacement (dealer, automotive locksmith, online, etc.)
  5. Availability of the 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 probably the most important factors as they dictate whether you need a chip, intelligent fob, “push to start”, remote, or a regular “non-transponder” key. Keys for late model cars have better security features and so you can expect to pay more than $250 for a replacement key. Choose your Genesis model (from the drop-down menu) and the type of key you had for more accurate pricing and information.

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.

A dealer typically charges about 10%-15% less than a locksmith for the key. However, you’ll probably have to tow the car to the dealer so they can code/program the new key or remote, so the total price is usually higher.

Furthermore,

Consider that if you are thinking about getting a locksmith to come out and make you a new key outside of regular business hours, the price is likely to spiral.

Finally,

If your Genesis ignition cylinder has been changed in the past (quite often the case with older cars), this probably means that the code for the key may no longer be valid, so you will either have to get a new key cut manually by a locksmith or change the ignition once again so the dealer can’t be of help.

Q: Can I get a Genesis key replacement by VIN?

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

The VIN gives Genesis dealers or automotive locksmiths the option of accessing 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: Genesis dealers don’t keep a record for vehicles older than 10 years. An automotive locksmith is therefore your only option to get a replacement key.
  2. For vehicles equipped with a transponder system and/or a remote/intelligent key/fob key: Codes are available. However, as coding is required, you will have to either tow the car to the dealer or have an automotive locksmith come and code the key on site.

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

A: The price for Genesis key replacement varies according to the year of manufacture and the model. In the main, there is one type of Genesis keys when it comes to replacement key cost, which is a key fob or smart key, like in the picture below:

From a Dealer –

Keys of this type have to be coded in order to start the car and therefore the car will have to be towed to the dealership which will result in an additional cost.

An estimated cost for a remote key: Usually around $450 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 so you can expect to pay more than the dealer would charge.

However, an automotive locksmith operating a mobile service can make the key on-site and therefore save you time and money and the hassle of towing the car to the dealer.

An estimated cost for a remote key: Usually around $400 for a new key.
