City 2 Surf Locksmiths...

Can Re-flash Your Cars ECU, On The Gold Coast!

Reflashing the Engine Control Unit (ECU) of your vehicle is an advanced service performed by professional locksmiths using cutting-edge technology to reprogram the vehicle to recognize new car keys. This process is essential when all original keys are lost, necessitating the removal of old keys from the vehicle's memory and the introduction of new ones into the system.

City 2 Surf Locksmith Gold Coast recently assisted a customer with a 2003 Toyota Rav4 who had misplaced all their keys. It's worth noting that for certain vehicle models from Toyota, Lexus (including the Honda Prelude, Acura RL, and Acura NSX) from the late 1990s and early 2000s, traditional key programming methods through the OBD port are not viable if all original keys are lost.

Typically, this scenario would require a complete ECU replacement. However, with our expertise and specialized equipment, City 2 Surf Locksmith Gold Coast can reflash the ECU directly, bypassing the need for costly replacements and allowing the vehicle to accept new keys without the original ones. This technique ensures your vehicle is accessible and operational again, efficiently and securely.

The majority of vehicles manufactured after 1995 are equipped with immobilizers as a measure against car theft, with many manufacturers adopting transponder key technology.

This technology incorporates a small chip within the car key that, when inserted into the ignition, must correspond with the vehicle's onboard computer for the car to start. Like all technology, issues can arise...

City2Surf auto locksmiths are seasoned specialists in transponder technology, offering supply, repair, and reprogramming services for transponder keys ever since this technology was introduced to the Queensland automobile market.

Simply contact us with your vehicle's make, model, and year of manufacture, and we will provide you with a precise quote for key replacement.

Additionally, we carry a comprehensive selection of central locking remotes for various makes, including Holden, Ford, Toyota, Subaru, Lexus, Mazda, Mitsubishi, and many others, covering all the well-known brands.
