Locksmith in San Jose.. Cut and Program
 
Does anyone know of a good locksmith that can cut and program a key with the immobilizer chip? Preferably in the San Jose area.

The dealer was quoting me like $149 to cut and program the new key.

Not in San Jose, but I went to Lockworks Unlimited in Redwood city, and they cut and programmed for $100.

XxSti05xX 03-13-2012 05:16 PM

That's a reasonable price. I just called a few places and some are quoting me even higher then the dealer.

Wow..

Well according to the guys where I went, Subarus are one of the harder keys to cut... BTW, if you need a remote programmed, get one off [url=http://www.carandtruckremotes.com/]Keyless Remotes - Car Remotes, Replacement Key fobs, Keyless Entry Remotes, Transponder Car Keys[/url] And then look [URL="http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1636339"]here[/URL] It is the cheapest way out there. Subaru wanted to charge me $200 just for the remote. another $30 just for program.

Ya its crazy how much they wanna charge. Just got off the phone with another locksmith and he wanted between $140-180. Told him he was trippin and I would just rather go to the dealer.

Found the remote here

does this not apply for earlier models? becasue my 04 fxt doesnt have a chip in the key,and i could program the keyfob myself also

No only Subarus with immobilizers. The remote anyone can program as long as you know the steps

05 stis and on i believe. 100-150 is a decent price for reprogramming and cutting a key. We pay Hernandez locksmith 100$ to reprogram keys for us at times. I dont think he'll guarantee the Subaru ones though.

Give Steven's Creek Parts a call and ask for Ryan (Unit91 on i-club). He's the parts and service director and will give you a good price.

Don't mind his expression of art through facial hair, he offers good help and his guys do too.

Ya $100-150 I think is a fair price. Some places I called wanted well above $150. Had one quote me $225 :jawdrop:

I sent him a PM but he never got back to me. I'm gonna swing by tomorrow and see what he can do.

There's a place on the corner of Phealen and 7th Street that advertises they can do chip'd keys
Never used them, but they always look busy

Blazingbuda40 03-13-2012 09:22 PM

anyone know how much just for a cut key?

theoutbackdream 03-13-2012 09:23 PM

I got quoted $60 for just the key getting cut. $30 for program. then tax at Lockworks Unlimited

foosh 03-13-2012 09:33 PM

I bought a 06 sti remote on ebay for 20 bucks and programmed it myself although it took like an hour because i kept messing up

try this stand in great mall milpitas thats by the burlington coat factory. They programmed a honda key and cut it for just 15 bucks

Id get a blank key with transponder on ebay, therye around 20 dollars and go around trying to get it cut and programmed

I called them today and they quoted me $80 to cut and program the key, but said they couldn't guarantee it bc I was gonna use a key from a 2005 Legacy GT. Didnt matter bc I knew it would work.

I also had emailed Capitol Subaru and they quoted me $15 to cut and $145 to program. Hella rip off

I then decided to drive over to Stevens Creek Subaru and talk to Ryan. Asked him how much and he said, free to cut and $75 to program.
Told him he had a deal. 30mins later they were done and everything works great.
