Customized to your Vehicle

We have the exact customized fob and programming sequence for most domestic and foreign vehicles. Only the dealer can match our level of service, but you know what that will cost you! As a matter of fact, many dealers will come to us to perform the programming, then charge you their price.

Getting your Fob Online? You Might Want to Reconsider...

Many online remote and fob retailers will use Amazon, Ebay, etc. to sell their inferior products to you. Unfortunately, most of these products have reduced service life or do not work at all. Our products are guaranteed to work and are correct OEM licensed replacements. Should you want a less-expensive alternative, we can also provide you with a quality, American-made clone. Either way, your fob or key will give you years of worry-free performance.

Very reasonable price and quality of the fob was excellent. Took very little time – they allowed me to sit out with the car while it was getting programmed so I could see what was being done…rare these days.

Valet Key

I was referred to Santa Clarita Auto Key. Best service ever! He looked at the valet key the dealership gave us when we bought our 2019 Toyota 4Runner SR5 and told us what we needed to do to get two keys that worked the car and the alarm system! He made us a spare for free! I came back within an hour of talking to him with the car in question. Made us a key, programmed it and made sure it worked the alarm system, locks and started the car!!! We ordered another key!!! He is fantastic! Unlike the dealership (in Orange County) that sold us the car and the alarm system with no way to set the alarm.

Great service and much quicker, simpler and cheaper than the dealership. Had my key cut and programmed in less than a half hour. Highly recommend.

My son and I came in to have our Excursion reprogrammed. The key was done in five minutes, then the tech threw in a freebie: he decoded the 5-button code on the door! Thanks again…

I needed to have a master key programmed to work on my Subaru and didn’t want to pay the dealership $150 to do it.
I went online and found that there are a few key/locksmith specialists who can program most car keys, and who are generally cheaper than the dealership.
SCAK not only quoted me the best price, but Lou, who I believe owns the shop, sounded the most knowledgeable to me, so I went in to have the work done. They charged half of what the Subaru dealer wanted, and before beginning the work Lou told me that he did not anticipate any problems, but that there would be no charge if he couldn’t do the job to my total satisfaction.
Problems arose and neither my old keys nor the new key were working properly. Lou tried several different ways to correct the problem, but nothing was working. After trying unsuccessfully to troubleshoot the problem for about an hour, he apologized and told me that he intended to fix the problem no matter how long it took, but that he would not charge me anything for his work since it was taking so long and was an inconvenience for me.
The problem with the keys had resulted in the car not starting. Lou told me that if he was not able to fix the problem he would pay for my car to be towed to a Subaru dealer and would also pay whatever it cost for them to fix it.
He ran out of solutions, so he called a technician from the company that supplied him with the computer hardware and software used for the programming. He was on the phone with them off and on for about another hour, trying everything they could think of, but even the tech was not able to come up with a solution. Then the tech called a Subaru specialist and still no one could fix the problem. They were actually going to send a tech to our location, even though it was about 6:00pm and his store closed at 5:00.
Before the tech arrived, Lou thought of one more thing to try and, tadaa, everything immediately worked perfectly!
He ended up working on it for 2 1/2 hours and would not give up until he either fixed it or paid me to have it fixed. He solved a problem that other “specialists” could not solve. He refused any payment and even offered to buy dinner for me while I was waiting!
THAT IS EXCEPTIONAL SERVICE! He earns my highest respect and recommendation!!

After going to some other gip locksmith, I ended up with SCV Key. I am glad I chose these people because they had fair pricing and because they finished the job quickly and were very friendly.


Honda fob

I went to SCV AutoKey to get my Honda fob replaced. The owner took the time to find me the absolute best deal on a remote and gave me a choice of OEM from the factory or a lower-priced option. I chose the OEM and it came in a genuine Honda package, it programmed in 5 minutes, and worked flawlessly! The shop was clean, the owner was very polite and helpful, and everything went as promised. Greatly recommend these people…
