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. Typically, manufacturers of fobs use hard plastic and they include buttons you can press to get them to perform specific functions. As you can imagine, losing your fob can be an ordeal.

Is it possible for me to program my own key fob?

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.

Another thing you should know is that you might not be able to locate all of the tools you need to complete this job. That is because they are only available to professional locksmiths. Rather than go through this aggravation, just call us and have us do the work from the very beginning.

What options do I have to replace a key fob?

Your options include working with us, bringing your key fob to a dealer, or completing the work yourself. We feel the first option is the best because it ensures the correctness of the work. If you take your fob to a dealership, don't be surprised when the cost is significantly higher than what we would charge you. It's unfortunate, but some dealerships see your desperate need to fix the problem as an opportunity to charge as much as possible. Most dealerships will sell you the fob you need as well as program it. Lastly, you can attempt to program the fob by yourself.

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?

The time it takes to complete this job depends on the steps we must take for programming. Your wait time will be shorter when our locksmith technicians don't need to access the diagnostics portal of your vehicles. The average time for all types of jobs is typically under 20 minutes depending on make and model of the car and difficulty of the fob system.

Situations that can drive the time estimate up are when we need to cut or deprogram a key. Due to the extensive experience our locksmiths bring to their jobs, this normally goes quickly as well. Rest assured, we will never hurry through a job at the expense of quality or safety.

Do you need my car to be there when you're working on programming my fob?

Yes, it's necessary for your car to be right there when we complete a replacement of your key fob. Additionally, your car and the replacement key fob we just completed need to be in the same area to ensure that the new programming works. We are happy to drive to your location if you can't get your car to move safely. When we say that we're available 24 hours a day and 365 days a year, we truly mean it.
