Car Key Replacement
It happens! You've misplaced your keys, damaged your existing key, or locked your fob in the vehicle; AutoECU provides a full professional car key cutting, programming, and synchronisation service with non-destructive entry.
Lockpicking and forced entry has always been a security risk and in today's era is far too easy - for this reason, cars require more than just a key blade to function.
Refer to the 'Keys' section to learn more about car keys and their nature in 2021.

Our work consists of module repair and software writing. This also means we can remap vehicles to tune their engines to run faster, or more efficiently!
An 'ECU map' is a crucial piece of software that can be described as a map of instructions found within the ECU (Engine Control Unit) telling the physical parts of a car when and how to work. By 'remapping' the ECU you are essentially modifying the software so that the engine can run the way you tell it to.
Software Coding & Programming
Often when picking your new vehicle you will encounter many specifications and trim levels appealing to your taste. The differences in these vehicles may be within the software and thus coding can replicate the extra features you missed out on.
With the code edited you can benefit from features such as windows rolling down via the remote, brighter headlights, folding mirrors when locked, auto locking of the vehicle when driving and so on... for select vehicles there are a number of features which can be added that the manufacturer do not offer. It's almost like it's illegal :)
And then there are features that require hardware fitment such as remote central locking, immobilisers, multifunctional steering wheels and so on... of course, retrofitting is an option, but in modern cars they require more than just changing the wiring harness and actual parts - theres programming required.
Thankfully 3rd party solutions are widely available and you are no longer limited to the dealership to offer you the expensive addons you might have find a liking for.
For damaged or faulty modules that cannot be cloned, this service provides a full reprogrammed replacement. We used data retrieved from your vehicle to reconfigure the OEM standard that arrived from the dealership.
Due to unforeseen issues, vehicles tend to have some common failures which open the possiblity for foreign damage. This would include water intrusion, short circuits, brittle connections and so much more which cannot be known until wear and tear takes its course. Again, AutoECU offers a mobile service if your vehicle has become immobilised and unable to drive.
