What to do when your Hyundai 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 Hyundai Tucson, 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe, 2014 Hyundai Elantra, 2015 Hyundai Accent” 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 Hyundai key fob or 2010 Hyundai Sonata needs to be programmed, whereas 1997 Hyundai Accent doesn’t.
- In case you need a new ignition, make sure you tried getting a new key first. Changing the ignition for Hyundai cars is more expensive and it will result in a different key for the doors and ignition.
- Moreover, before calling the dealer to get a replacement Hyundai 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.
