Acura has higher security key systems than most other car manufacturers. Because of this, it can be difficult to find somebody that can do the work that you need.

Acura does not use standard conventional keys. The blades that they use are high security laser cut keys. They are not cut on the side like a normal metal key. This is to add a layer of security to prevent people from easily being able to make copies of the key. A normal locksmith or hardware store will not be able to cut the key using a normal key duplicator. Additionally, Acura uses transponder keys with very specific chip-sets that must be programmed by a professional to the vehicle’s ECU. This requires an extraordinarily powerful computer that we will hook up to your vehicle’s OBD to program the transponder.
There are a tremendous amount of different keys that Acura uses for their vehicles. Vehicles manufactured before 2000 use standard metal keys, but anything manufactured after then is likely to use laser cut keys with transponders. In addition to that, there are a wide assortment of different remotes, remote head keys, and smart keys. We keep an inventory of every kind of key that Acura uses, so we should be able to make a key no matter what year and model of Acura you have.
Ignition and lock problems
Acura locks are prone to wearing down over time. When this happens, it may become difficult to turn a key in the lock, whether it be the door lock or the ignition. We advise getting this fixed as soon as possible, because when your lock shows signs of wear, it may not be long before it locks up completely and you could be stuck wherever you are when it happens. The ignition is the most prone to this kind of damage, as it is the most used lock that we use the key in. Sometimes, a tumbler or a spring may even break, causing the lock to seize up with no warning. If this is the case and you can not drive your car to our shop to have it fixed, we can dispatch a technician to your location immediately. The technician will arrive with a van stocked with keys, ignitions, ignition rebuild kits, lock tumblers, and all of the tools and know-how necessary to get your locks fixed on location. We will get you going in no time!
