What does a key fob do?

A fob is a device that interacts with your car's electronics. It can complete several different functions, including opening and locking the doors and starting the car. Some fobs are equipped to open a car's doors and start the vehicle without the driver ever even touching it. A fob can be a separate device, or it could be part of a mechanical key set.

Should I try to program a fob myself?

Since every make and model of car is so different, we can't answer this question with complete certainty. However, it may be possible in some situations. It requires you to obtain a blank remote as well as the correct instructions for programming the key fob. The reprogramming won't work if someone programmed the remote previously and it is no longer blank.

Some people start this job only to end up frustrated because the tools they need aren't available to the public. You can save yourself this type of aggravation by contacting our company at the start of the project. Another potential drawback to programming your own fob is that some methods of self-instruction require you to have extra keys available for your car already.

Can you explain the different options I have for key fob replacement?

You have three options when it comes to replacing a key fob. However, working with a professional locksmith organization is always the most attractive one. A second option you have, although we don't consider it to be a good option, is to take your key fob directly to the dealership. They will typically have the key fob available to sell to you and can do the programming for you as well. Unfortunately, some dealerships take advantage of your obvious need and charge you a very high fee. The third option is to complete the fob programming on your own.

Before you can attempt self-programming, you need to locate a replacement fob and read the instructions accompanying it very carefully. However, you should know that this won't be an option for every make and model of vehicle. This option usually costs less upfront but could cost you more over time. For example, you may need to call a professional locksmith in the future to undo any damage you created with the fob due to not having any experience programming them. When you consider our transparent and competitive pricing model, we hope you will agree that working with a professional is your best bet.

How long does this process take?

Most jobs take between 10 and 20 minutes to complete, but it could be more or less depending on the number and complexity of the steps we need to follow to program your fob. If your vehicle is designed in such a way that our locksmiths don't need to work with a diagnostic portal, the time for service will fall on the lower end of the spectrum.

You can expect the service call to take longer if you need a key cut or deprogrammed. Even so, our expert technicians will complete the job as quickly as possible while still maintaining the highest standard of quality.
