Mistake#1 - Keys being locked inside your vehicle: It's a fact - drivers in the US tend to lock their car keys inside the cars rather often. This is a stressful situation that requires the fastest response possible and it's not recommended to use any improvised tools, because car door locks nowadays are much more secure than they used to be in the past, so it's hard to unlock them without professional tools.
The only way to prevent a car lockout is to develop a habit of making sure that you have your keys in your hands, each time you are about to get out of the vehicle. Make sure that your car key is in your hand, each time you intend to open the car door from the inside and get out of it. This might sound primitive and obvious, but once you get used to it, it works!
Mistake#2 - Unnecessary ignition replacement: Such parts as an ignition module or a car key don't always need to be replaced. In many cases, ignition issues can be repaired by professional locksmiths, so unless your ignition is damaged beyond repair - installation of a brand new ignition would mean nothing but extra money paid for no reason.
Also, if your Transponder key got stolen, there is no need to replace the ignition, in order to protect your vehicle from an auto theft. All you have to do is to get the chip in the ignition and in your spare Transponder key reprogrammed. Once it's done, the stolen key will be not more useful than any random piece of metal and you will surely save quite a lot of money!
When all is said and done, we strongly recommend that you consult with our professionals each time you need a locksmith service, before you decide which service you prefer to use. A short consultation that is provided for free, could save you a lot of money!
