Why chose a locksmith to replace my Dodge Key?

Replacing your Dodge car key has Pros & Cons to consider:

PROS of using a locksmith to make Dodge key:

  • 1) Fastest option – Most locksmiths carry all the necessary tools to cut and code Dodge keys. They can come and solve your problem, usually within an hour or so.
  • 2) On-site service – Locksmiths offer a mobile service which means that regardless of your location, they can come to you and save you the trouble of towing the car. They do, however, charge you for that.
  • 3) Price- Overall, especially for Dodge models that have key fobs or transponder Keys made 2010 and after, this is the cheapest option.

CONS of using a locksmith to make Dodge key:

  • 1) Availability of keys – Because locksmiths have to carry many types of keys for different makes and models, they may not have the specific key you need.
  • 2) Coding the key – Not all locksmiths carry the necessary tools to program all car keys. Verify that they can do the coding before scheduling any service.


  • 1) Provide them with your VIN number. This way, they will know the type of key you have and therefore, they can give you a better quote. Don’t have the VIN? Mention the year make and model, e.g. 2019 Dodge Ram
  • 2) Ask about their location and provide them with yours. Many locksmiths offer mobile service, so chances are they will be travelling around. To avoid a long waiting period, ask for an ETA.
  • 3) Shop around, don’t be lazy. True, many locksmiths can make you a replacement key, but prices vary. Don’t settle with only one quote. Call around for the best price!
  • 4) Ask about forms of payment and make sure you will get an invoice. You may be able to get some money back from your insurance company.
  • 5) Make sure you have the necessary documents to show ownership. Otherwise, a locksmith won’t make you a key. Driver’s license, registration, insurance card etc.
  • 6) Provide the locksmith with any additional information such as if the ignition or door cylinder have been changed before, or if you have had problems starting the car, or others.

So, what’s the bottom line when it comes to calling an automotive locksmith?

For most people, choosing an automotive locksmith to get a replacement key is overall, the best option. It may not be the cheapest, but it is definitely the fastest, and better than the alternatives, especially when you need to get a key fast. However, it is important to ask the right questions, as we have explained. Do your research, and make your own decision.

Replacing your Dodge key At The Dealership


  • 1) Fast – Odds are that the dealer will be able to cut and code a new key for you fast, as they should have the personnel and tools to do that.
  • 2) Availability of keys – The dealer should have your key, regardless of how old or how new your car is. Unlike locksmiths, they should only keep one make’s keys in Stock.


  • 1) If you have a key fob or transponder key, you will have to tow the car there, which will result in an additional cost.
  • 2) Dealerships don’t work outside business hours. Therefore, if you need a replacement key ASAP, that may be a problem.
  • 3) As always, ask for a quote and call more than one dealership. You should be able to get this service at any location.
