What is a fob for keys?

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.

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.

Many times, the tools needed to program a key fob aren't available to consumers and you will need a professional locksmith to complete the job for you. Rather than go through the hassle of trying to program your fob only to discover you can't locate the equipment, plan to work with our professional locksmith company from the start. Another thing to consider is that certain methods you can perform by yourself require you to have a spare key for your car. This happens most often when you need to duplicate a key.

Can you recommend the best key fob replacement options?

We think the best of your three options is working with professional locksmiths from our company. This ensures that quality and speed of the work. A second choice is to take your key fob to a car dealership and buy a new one. A dealership employee can program it for you, but it will likely cost you much more than either of your other options. Although not all dealerships do this, some have the reputation of taking advantage of people who appear desperate for help by increasing the price as much as they can. Your final option is to obtain a blank replacement fob and attempt to program it 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 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.

If your car won't start or you don't feel comfortable driving it, remember that you can contact our dispatch center and we will send a technician to you immediately.
