Most Kia keys require on-site coding with a special machine

Most Kia keys require on-site coding with a special machine

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.

Furthermore, 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.

Finally, in case your 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: Can I get a Kia Amanti 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 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 Kia vehicles that are older than 10 years: There are no codes available. Therefore, an automotive locksmith is your only option to get a replacement key.
  2. For Kia Amanti vehicles that are 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: Kia Amanti key programming – Which keys you can program yourself, which keys require programming tool & more.

A: Kia has different types of keys. Some require programming and some don’t. All transponder chip keys and/or smart key fobs need to be programmed with a special programming machine that only an automotive locksmith or the dealer has. There is no need to program non-transponder metal keys.

To make things simple we divided all Kia keys into 2 categories:

  1. No programming needed (Non-transponder keys).
  2. Keys that need to be programmed and you will need an automotive locksmith or the dealer (Transponder or remote keys).

 

No Programming needed

Kia Amanti non-transponder keys are metal keys that have no chip in them and therefore no programming is needed:

None – This model has the only key that requires special equipment to program the keys. An automotive locksmith or the dealer only can cut and program these keys for you. We can help you with that.

These keys, also known as remote smart keys, intelligent keys or key fobs, as well as transponder keys, have a security chip in them and programming is needed. In addition, a special machine is needed to program them and therefore an automotive locksmith or dealer should do it for you (Usually for models made after 1998).
