Ignition Repair or Replacement Warning Signs

Call us right away if you experience any of the following issues:

  • Your vehicle won’t start

Charles is the Man of the day! He helped me with getting two new key fobs for my Mazda 3 2015 after losing my keys the day before. I’m so grateful for him, he knows exactly what he is doing and is confident in getting the job done with ease. I highly recommend calling him for any lockout problems you have . Highly recommend!!!!!

We had a Mercedes at home and a key that had stopped working and had already had one person come out, spend 2 hours, and decide that he couldn't do the job. It was apparently a difficult job and not easy to find people willing to tackle it but Charlie came out as soon as he could and got the job done. A week later when the new key appeared to have stopped working he met us where the car was, quickly ascertained that the problem was not with the key but in fact the car lights had been left on, jump-started the car, and prepared to be on his way, without asking for any remuneration (and our area is out of his normal area to begin with). If we hadn't been impressed enough before with Charlie's professionalism, this second interaction was proof of his professionalism. F.A. Locksmith is a class act!

They were great!! I called their office on a Saturday. The technician called me back within ten minutes and was at my house within an hour from the original call. We had two keys from an older model Mercedes that quit working. He was able to program the new keys and cut the door keys in less than an hour for FAR less than the dealer would have charged. We are EXTREMELY pleased with the service provided.

Charlie was knowledgeable, respectful & punctual. I was in town on vacation and supposed to leave the day of service when my key fob to my BMW was erased. Three hours later and a TON of labor in a driveway, my BMW was back on the road thanks to Charlie's knowledge. Charlie was a life saver that day. If he couldn't fix it, I would of had to tow & leave my car at the dealer for at least a week, rent a car to drive back to New York and then fly back to Raleigh. I couldn't thank Charlie enough for his hard work. I couldn't even argue with the cost of service vs all the extra costs I would of paid. Charlie thank you again and keep up the great work!!

Amazing!! Needed help getting a new key for my car. Got a quick response from the technician with more than fair pricing. Got a new key programmed and cut very quick for my car at less time and cost than the dealer quoted me. I will definitely use F.A.

Same day service and they were able to replace and program a fob as well as cut the key for my 2015 Audi Q3. Total cost was $100.00 less than the dealership and I never left the house. The technician was courteous, let me know what was going on the entire time, and we thoroughly tested all functions of the fob before he left. Highly recommended!

Omg. He was awesome. I called several other companies and they gave me the run around. We actually waited on one locksmith to show up but never did. So I called F.A Locksmith which was my last hope. I will recommend this company to all my family and friends in this area. Again THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE. AWESOME CUSTOMER SERVICE!!!!!!! AWESOME ALL THE WAY AROUND.

Long one. Strap in. I wish I could remember the name of the smith that assisted me. Dude is an absolute legend. I lost my BRZ key with no spare. After a call to the dealership and a quote for a few thousand I decided to check around. He was able to get into my car quickly, with no alarm. Knew the system inside and out. At first no dice with the key (only takes oem), but he found one. A perfect match. It went from a huge problem to peace of mind in a matter of minutes. And the best part, their keys come with a fairly lengthy warranty. Very professional, very quick, highly recommended. You really can’t go wrong here.
