What to do when your Pontiac 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 for Pontiac cars, remember to provide the exact year, make and model, e.g. “I lost my 2011 Pontiac Firebird car key, 2013 Pontiac Grand Prix, 2014 Pontiac Grand M, 2010 Pontiac G6” 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 Pontiac key fob or 2010 Pontiac G8 needs to be programmed, whereas 1997 Pontiac Bonneville doesn’t.
- In case you need a new ignition, make sure you tried getting a new key first. Changing the ignition for Pontiac 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 Pontiac 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.
Q: Pontiac key replacement cost – How much does it cost to replace Pontiac key without the original? What is the average price?
A: In short, to replace a Pontiac key usually cost between $90-$400. It depends on a few factors:
- Type of key
- The year manufactured
- Time of day & your location
- Where you get a key replacement (Dealer, automotive locksmith, online, etc)
- Availability of code to cut a new key
- Original ignition or not
The type of key you had and the year the car was manufactured are maybe the most important factors.(chip, intelligent fob, “push to start”, remote, regular “non-transponder” key). The newer the car is, the better security features the key had and therefore you can expect to pay more than $250 for a replacement key. Choose your Pontiac model(from the drop-down menu) and type of key you had for a more accurate price 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.
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 Pontiac 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.
