Do you own a Kia Car? These are great cars, but after a while, the keys suffer from two problems that we are going to look at as part of our Kia key repair service. Here is the type of key we’ll be looking at in this article.
The good news is that these are fairly simple for us to repair, plus the electronics inside the key very rarely go wrong, unlike other makes.
Kia Key Repair Service - Broken Blade
The worst problem is that the blade breaks away from the rest of the key. The issue is that the blade is attached to a blade holder by way of a small pin. The metal that the blade holder is made from is not strong enough and develops a crack around the hole. The next thing you hear is the chink sound as you key blade drops out on the pavement! Or the key blade gets left behind in the lock when you take the key out. Or maybe you find the blade separate in your pocket or handbag.
Unfortunately, the blade holder cannot be purchased separately, it comes as part of a replacement case. The good news is that this is an easy, simple fix at our Lincoln Car Key Man workshop. Let’s look at the second problem we see with these keys.
Kia Key Buttons Perish
The only other problem we see with these keys concern the buttons. Eventually, after many years, the rubber of the buttons wears through. In normal operation, when the rubber is pressed, it activates an electronic switch inside the key. The rubber simply protects the delicate electronics inside the key.
However, when the rubbers perish, then the switch can only be used by poking something into the key, such as a pencil. This can only damage the key long-term. Therefore we recommend our Kia key repair service to cure both of these problems.
