FAQs

What does a key fob do?

Key fobs control multiple electronic functions of your vehicle and you typically hold one in your hand. Its major functions include starting your car and opening or locking its doors. Some fobs are advanced to the point where you can just push a button to start the car without ever actually touching it. It is most often part of a mechanical key set or can be a separate device made from hard plastic. You simply push a button when you want your fob to perform a function. It's inconvenient and potentially unsafe to lose a fob or have it break. We're happy to let you know that We are available 24 hours a day if you find yourself in that situation.

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

Not necessarily, but keep in mind it won't be possible to do this with all types of vehicles. The first thing you need to do is locate a blank remote. You will also need the instructions for programming the fob. Be certain that the fob you find is blank or your programming efforts will fail.

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?

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 will it take to replace my fob?

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. You never have to worry about us sacrificing excellent service just to get the job done fast. That is because our locksmiths are professional enough to work quickly while providing the highest quality of service at the same time.

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

Yes. We can only create a replacement for your fob when the vehicle is in the same vicinity. This is the best way for us to make sure that the programming we just completed works as expected. We do understand that your car may not be drivable, so we are happy to come to your location to complete programming of your fob.
