How much does a replacement Tesla key cost?
What should I do in the interim while I'm waiting for the new key? I have the Model 3.
“For the Model 3, you can purchase a key card from Tesla for $25.
The key card will work as a backup if you can’t open the vehicle with your phone. You can also purchase a key fob for $175 that pairs with your Tesla automatically and allows hands-free access.
Since most owners pair a smartphone with their Tesla, you should be able to unlock and drive it using your phone, even if you are waiting for a key card.
Unless you lose your phone, too, this will ensure you don’t have to deal with locking your keys in the car or replacement fees again.”
