Can the creation of a new master key (with a chip) cause the valet key to stop working? : Locksmith


I had a new master key made and it works great. However, my valet key did stop working shortly after (the car will turn over but not start). It does have some corrosion on it, so the key could just be broken, but the weird thing is that my automatic start won’t work either now.

Could the locksmith have reset the “code” to start the car and now my other keys are ‘wrong’?

What are some of the challenges of working as a locksmith? : Locksmith


The sheer number of skill sets you need if you really want to be a master, all while being paid less than many of those professions because most people don’t respect our trade

On any given day I need to be;

A safe tech to open or service safes Carpenter to repair doors/frames and install locks Door tech (we install doors) Aluminum storefront tech (yup do those too)

Low voltage electrician (access control)… most jobs the actual electrician asks us how to do things while charging double what we do

Auto security (car keys)…. this one is hard because not everyone expands past the basics. But in my shop we do full on auto electrician work. We trace bad wires, replace and program bad computers (not just the key stuff) and offer full diagnostics, including European makes . Insedentially, because of that we have work from most shops and many of the branded dealers because of this…. they respect our work, but the average walk in thinks you’re just a key cutter , and doesn’t realize his mechanic calls me when he can’t figure it out.

Second is … dealing with the public but that’s the case with any retail job

Rekeying a house today I found this artwork. Looks like someone cut the head off a small nail and used it for a retainer pin. It was bent to 90 degrees and prevented the deadbold from working. Nice touch for a emtek lock. : Locksmith


level 1

I tell customers it’s the best looking cheap crap. Nice looking, not so good quality. When I work in a very expensive home thst has Emtek hardware, I point that out. Of course, sometimes I’m there specifically because they have Emtek and something failed! Even a rekey though, can get you sales when they find out they have crap in a million dollar plus house.
