Vehicles are equipped with key codes, which are number sequences that link a key to its specific vehicle. If you need a new key for your vehicle, you'll need to have the key code to create your key; without it, you won't be able to start your car. Key codes are noted in the paperwork given to you when you purchased your car. If you cannot find the key code in your paperwork, don't panic because your vehicle identification number contains your key code as well.

Contact your local car dealership or a professional locksmith to request a new key for your vehicle. Both will need to make sure they have the correct type of blank key for the make and model of your vehicle.
Provide the dealership or locksmith with your key code. If you can't find your key code, you can provide them with your vehicle identification number (VIN). Your VIN is located on your vehicle's paperwork, your car insurance paperwork, and your title and registration paperwork. It is also located on the driver's door panel and inside the windshield on the bottom left corner, visible from outside your car.
Schedule a time to go to your dealership and get your new key, or for your locksmith to come to you with your new keys. You will be asked to provide some form of proof that you are the owner of the vehicle, such as your registration or insurance card. Pay for the service provided to you and for your new keys.
