Frequently Asked Questions
What does a key fob do?
A fob for keys is a hand-held device that controls many of the electronic functions of your car. For example, the fob can lock and open your doors as well as start your car. With some fobs, you can even start your car without touching the steering wheel or ignition switch. You may see a fob as a stand-alone device or as one part of a mechanical set of keys. Fob manufacturers typically create them from hard plastic. You just push a button on your fob that corresponds with its unique function. Drivers depend on their fobs a lot these days. This makes losing one a real hassle. If that happens to you, just call us at any time of the day or night for immediate help.

Would anything bad happen if I program my own 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.
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 should I expect this to take?
We typically quote a job time ranging from 10 to 20 minutes. However, this isn't an absolute. Your fob replacement could take more or less time depending on whether it's a manual or electrical system as well as the number of required steps. In the event that our locksmiths don't need to access your car's diagnostic portal, the total time for replacement is typically less.
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.
Should I plan to have my vehicle nearby at the same time you program the 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.
