Mr. Hao Rui Gao owners accidentally lost car keys, and later by the dealer to the factory orders with the key. However, from order to get the key, wait two weeks before Mr. Gao. A key is actually to go with for so long? This allows Mr. Gao did not understand. Also let him do not understand is that a little key, actually want to spend nearly $ 3,000. An inconspicuous car keys, is so expensive, we might take a look at its replacement cost is what the composition.
Proportional to the price and the purchase price with a spoon
“How expensive with the keys, usually with matched Keys, also 10 dollars, which turned out to be 3000 yuan car keys.” Mr. Gao said. Mr. Shaw was driving the car is a Skoda Hao Rui, had landed spent nearly 300,000 yuan. Reporters interviewed the staff of the 4S shop, with key staff said the price is fixed headquarters, they have no right to change, customers are unable to do so.
Reporter consulted a number of 4S stores downtown and found the car keys generally worth a lot of money, with the key prices and the prices of basic proportional. Most of 4S shop with key offer in 1000 yuan to 5000 yuan, the price of some high-end models with the key even up to 8000 yuan. In Volkswagen Jetta, for example, with the key quotes 4S shop given 1,500 yuan; part of a joint venture brand compact car like Vios, carnival, with a key price of about 1,000 yuan; 300,000 -50 million level luxury cars, with the key prices generally above 3,000 yuan.
Your car keys in the “technology fee”
A sale manager of FAW-Volkswagen 4S shop, said Lo, each key has a password, the password matches the high cost. Some mid-alone joint venture brands spend a remote key at least 1,500 yuan or more, and some luxury brand models alone is the key necessary to 3,000 yuan or more. If the owners choose to change the whole lock, then spend a lot more expensive than a single change keys, like the BMW SUV change the whole lock a section close to $ 10,000.
Some high-end imported cars with keys and destroy the original key in the production process needs to be completed. Such imports Audi and BMW models to be imported in Germany, so costs are generated on these costs, the price will be so expensive. In addition, high-end cars to crack the code matches the level and higher, so prices naturally increase. For some models, it may be the ignition switch, doors, rear doors, the glove box door, fuel tank cap, engine cover all use the same key to open, if the replacement vehicle locks, then the site would need to be replaced more, and costs will naturally increase.
In addition, Mr. Luo told reporters, changing locks with keys and the time spent is not how long, generally two or three hours to complete. However, according to different models of different levels of security keys, write code, and match needs to spend some time. Some high-end models with the key needs to make reservations in advance to determine the chassis number of different codes and other information based on different models, so when a customer key is broken or lost, under normal circumstances can not quickly get the key. Individual luxury brand because of the need to carry back to the origin with the key business superobd, may be stretched to a two-month period.
4S shop suggestions:
Lost the key lock is best for the whole
Then, once the key is lost, is not equipped with a key like it? Still need to replace the whole lock it? Mr Lo said that for security reasons, it is recommended that consumers new key match after a good idea to replace the vehicle locks. Now new cars are standard two keys, there is a brand identification codes, inscribed with a combination of letters and numbers, the brand must not be lost. If the owner accidentally lost the car keys, it is necessary to hold the brand with the key identifier. New with the key needs and “electronic identification code” on the original vehicle anti-theft system for matching, the match is completed, the new key to enable the lost remote control keys immediately lapse.
“Even if someone picked up the old car keys, and can only be opened by mechanical key to the door, absolutely impossible to start the car.” Current car remote control key has a chip inside, then insert the key, the key to the chip ID and the car alarm system After the match the correct identification code in order to start the car. After losing the keys, the safest approach is to replace a full lock. After replacing the whole lock, even if it was picked up before the lost keys, skp900 do not worry about the door will be opened.
Spoon roadside shop with no more than 1,000 yuan
Reporters in Yongfu Road Auto Parts City, you can find several shops consultation with key with the key prices, quotes several shops were given far less than the 4S shop, all in less than 1,000 yuan. In which a shop owner just as a Peugeot car owners with a new key, a new key moment is good, the owner will match the key chip laptop computer connected with the car, engine immobilizer data read for new keys and spare key performed microarray data matching, and then add the new data into the on-board computer, the entire process took less than half an hour, with a good as new keys and spare key, can successfully open and lock the doors, but also to start the vehicle, Pay only 630 yuan.
In response, Mr. Lo said, skp-900 car keys and passwords match engine anti-theft device is completed by computer, simply press the corresponding data input program, press the mouse to complete the match. Although simple, but one of the technical fees are not cheap. In addition, 4S shop is to knock off fees and material costs, while outside auto parts stores charge only the cost of materials. 4S shop for all who come with the car keys, I have to carry driving license, ID card, then check customer information, to apply with the key. The outside of the shop would not require these. It is learned that with the key is a special industry, the record must be registered in the Public Security Bureau and obtain relevant licenses, otherwise illegal operations, with chain stores and roadside mostly undocumented, security to speak of. Although the outside with the key businesses of low prices, but there is more than equipped to decode the hidden keys or malicious, but also may affect the security of the vehicle.
Therefore, from the reliability and safety starting with the key in the 4S shop expensive, can be considered to pay for peace of mind.
