Lost my car keys is a common problem that we face at some point in our lives. In such situations, you may panic or may have unnecessary tension. But if you misplace or lose your keys, don't panic because it's not the end of the world.

In the past, damaging or losing a car key was no big deal. You could install your spare key the small magnetic box attached to the inside bumper.

Therefore, replacing a lost key wasn't so expensive where nowadays with most cars using the latest technology this can become quite expensive.

  • Traditional keys ( Mechanical keys) 
  • Fob keys 
  • Transponder keys 
  • Smart keys

A little advance in technology has added a key fob to the car key, making locking and unlocking the car very convenient. If you lost only the fob, then you can open the car with the key and can buy the fob later.
