Auto Locksmith > VATS Keys

VATS stands for Vehicle Anti-theft System and is also known as PASS-Key (Personal Automotive Security System). Each VATS key has a resistor embedded within the key-blade, and each resistor has 1 of 15 possible values. Sometimes the resistors are refered to as a VATS Pellet or VATS Chip.

If you lose your VATS key, we can interrogate the VATS system on your car to determine the correct vats value. We can then create a new VATS key for your car.

We can come out to your location if you are unable to come to us. Our auto locksmith will arrive in a marked vehicle and carry identification. We'll open your car for you - even if it has electronic opening using a transponder key - and cut you a new set of keys or re-key the lock on site. So give us a call today, and we will get you back on the road again.
