Is replacing a fob difficult?

That's why it just makes sense to call our professional locksmith companyhere.

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

How hard is it to replace a key fob?

It's easier to do when you only need an unbranded and general fob, but we have no problem replacing a factory-made fob as well.

We can usually locate a new fob fairly quickly.

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.

It may be possible for you to do this in certain situations.

You would need to find a blank remote in addition to the programming instructions for the fob.

We think the best of your three options is working with professional locksmiths from our company.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Situations that can drive the time estimate up are when we need to cut or deprogram a key.

However, our technicians respect your time and will always work as quickly as possible while still providing excellent service.

Rest assured, we will never hurry through a job at the expense of quality or safety.

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

Yes, we would appreciate this as we are unable to make a fob replacement unless your vehicle is right there.

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