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.

It is most often part of a mechanical key set or can be a separate device made from hard plastic.

Fob manufacturers typically create them from hard plastic.

It's inconvenient and unsafe to lose a fob or have it break.

Drivers depend on their fobs a lot these days.

Will you be able to replace my key fob?

If that happens to you, just call us at any time of the day or night for immediate help.

Can you replace the fob for my car?

The next step is to program the fob and test it to ensure it works correctly.

The first thing they do is locate a new key fob that meets your car's specifications.

Next, they program the key fob and test it to make sure it works as expected.

Being without your key fob can be inconvenient and unsafe.

Feel free to contact us as soon as you realize that you have lost your fob or that it needs repair.

It's better than going to a dealership because we offer the same expert services, have extensive knowledge about vehicle security, and charge much less.

Every one of our locksmith technicians has several years of combined education and experience to program both manual and electric fobs.

Will you be able to program my fob?

When it comes to vehicle safety, it's not worth it to cut corners just to save a few dollars.

This includes those that run entirely on electricity.

After programming your new fob, they can also deprogram the key set you have now to ensure that your car's computer works with the right information.

You can't take chances when it comes to your personal security and the security of your vehicle.

Too many variables are at play to answer a simple yes or no to this question.

For starters, we need to know the make and model of your vehicle.

How hard is it to replace a key fob?

That depends on the complexity of your current key set as well as the model and make of your car.

We can usually locate a new fob fairly quickly.

This is especially true when you can use a general fob and don't need a specific brand.

Not necessarily, but keep in mind it won't be possible to do this with all types of vehicles.

We understand your time is valuable and will get the job done quickly without the need for rework.

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 mobile locksmiths.

Rather than go through this aggravation, just call us and have us do the work from the very beginning.

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.

What options do I have to replace a key fob?

A second choice is to take your key fob to a car dealership and buy a new one.

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.

If you choose to program your own fob, you will need to locate a blank replacement and follow the instructions that come with it in exact order.

The choice to self-program a fob isn't available with every type of vehicle.

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.

We are certain that our mobile locksmithing service offers you that.

For example, you may need to call a mobile 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?

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.

In the event that our locksmiths don't need to access your car's diagnostic portal, the total time for replacement is typically less.

Your time will be on the longer end if we need to deprogram or cut a key.

Due to the extensive experience our locksmiths bring to their jobs, this normally goes quickly as well.

We would much rather have our locksmith take a little extra time than do an incomplete or unsafe job.

Should I plan to have my vehicle nearby at the same time you program the fob?


We need to create the key with your car nearby for testing.

This ensures that we can test the programming before sending you on your way.

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.

We will send a technician to you immediately, day or night.

It doesn't matter if it's day, evening, night, on a weekend, or on a holiday.

Replacing the fob of your car can be time-consuming when you assume that you need to figure out how to do it yourself because it's hard to trust others with your car.

Many of our staff have experienced damage such as dents and scratches when leaving their vehicle for repair.

We are so certain of the quality of our work that we guarantee your complete satisfaction.

You will soon see that it was a good decision to allow us to complete the work on your key fob and not experience the frustration of trying to do it yourself.

We will fix your key fob problem in no time and leave you feeling relieved that you chose to work with our company.
