Daewoo Locksmith Manchester
Daewoo Car Key Replacements and Lock Repairs
We are able to cut and program replacement Daewoo and remote fobs for virtually ALL THE VEHICLES ACROSS THE ENTIRE RANGE.
FROM 1995 all Daewoo vehicles use transponder keys as pictured above (including remote fobs also). The transponder contained within keys from 1995-2000 is known as Megamos fixed code type 13 (or ‘T5’).
Transponder keys were employed because only when the vehicle receives a certain unique code from the transponder inside the key will it be allowed to start.
IF YOU HAVE A KEY ALREADY (1995-2000) and simply require as spare: Copying or ‘cloning’ is very straight forward and takes a matter of minutes with our market leading equipment.
IF YOU HAVE LOST ALL KEYS (1995-2000) then firstly a lock will have to be decoded in order to make a mechanical key which turns the locks. Secondly, vehicle specific ‘logic’ has to be written onto a transponder, inserted into the key head and finally this is introduced to the car’s ECU (computer) memory via plugging into the obd (communication) port with a specialised tester. Only then will the car be allowed to start.
FROM 2000 DAEWOO enhanced the security by using crypto chips with rolling code’s. These were Megamos type 48 (or T6 chips).
This meant new keys had to be programmed by plugging in specialised equipment into the car and coding the key(s) directly into the vehicle’s memory. This basically made unauthorised duplication more difficult.
REMOTE KEY FOBS: If you’re after a remote central locking fob (even if you don’t have one at present then we can provide this for you (providing the vehicle came with one when new).
KEYS LOCKED INSIDE? Amongst other ways of this happening, many cars will self-lock if left unlocked (often after just a minute!) as a security measure. Using non-destructive techniques we can get into your vehicle and get you up and running again, even outside office hours! Call us immediately.
BROKEN KEYS / KEY BROKE IN LOCK? Key extraction service available. Don’t stress, help is only a phone call away. Keys when keys are badly broken / worn down, solutions are at hand.
STOLEN KEYS: Had a key, or your only key stolen? If one’s gone missing or you’re unsure if someone else may have a copy then we can get this key deactivated from the vehicles memory , ensuring YOUR CAR STAYS IN YOUR HANDS! Lock changes or even re-coding existing locks where possible are also services we provide on site.
