Mazda Key Replacement
There are countless reasons why you might need a Mazda key replacement. You lost your key, your key broke inside of the ignition, or you gave your spare key to someone you no longer talk to.
Depending on whether you know where all remaining keys are, we can program a new key or provide a full replacement so that no one with your old keys will be able to start your car.
Regardless of how old or new your Mazda is, we’ll be able to help. Most importantly, we work fast so that you’re not without your keys any longer than what is absolutely necessary.
Can I Replace the Batteries in My Mazda Key Fob?
Absolutely! The battery in your key fob is only going to last between one and two years, so it’s likely that you’ll need to replace it several times throughout the life of your Mazda.
When your battery starts to die, you’ll get a reminder on your dash. It will tell you that the key fob battery is low and tell you that you need to hold the key closer to the start button.
When this warning shows, you may only have days left to make the replacement before it dies entirely.
Different fobs have different approaches in terms of replacing the batteries. You’ll want to read through your owner’s manual to learn about the proper procedure. Additionally, you’ll want to make sure that you have a button cell battery (typically a CR2025).
As you start the process, you’ll want to make sure that you are extremely careful. Otherwise, you can scratch the fob and even cause damage.
If you can’t replace the batteries on your own (or you simply don’t want to try), you can call us. Our friendly locksmiths in Houston will take care of the battery replacement quickly and affordably.
And, if it’s not the battery that is causing the problem, we do offer affordable Mazda key fob replacement services, too.
How Much Does a Mazda Key & Key Fob Replacement Cost?
The cost of a Mazda key and/or key fob replacement can be several hundred dollars, especially if you visit a dealership. There’s no reason to pay that – and at Express Locksmith Houston, we’re committed to finding you the most affordable solution.
There are a few reasons why it will be more expensive at the dealership:
- They use OEM parts
- They have high labor rates
- They offer a full “experience” while you wait at the dealership
We can provide fobs affordably. Then, we provide the programming so that the fob works with your particular Mazda. We’ll simply need your VIN and proof of ownership before we complete the programming.
With the help of one of our Houston technicians, we can ensure your key is manufactured, your fob is replaced and programmed, and you have what’s needed to operate and secure your Mazda once again.
