Key fob replacement

A key fob is a remote for your car. It interacts with your vehicle’s electronics, opens doors, and can even start a car in modern vehicles with keyless ignition. This fob may come as a standalone device, or it may come attached to the mechanical key. In most cases, the fob is a plastic device with some buttons on it for operation except in some luxury cars where the material of the fob is high-end.

If you ever lose your fob, whether the standalone device or one with a mechanical key, we can assist you in replacing it. A fob requires programming, unlike a standalone wafer or slider key. As such, the replacement process will take longer than it does with a traditional key.

We can assist you in replacing the fob. We take over the entire process from getting you a new key fob and program it to interact with your car. Our locksmiths have the knowledge and the experience needed to get you a fob within a short period.

Call us at (347) 770-5525, and a locksmith will be with you within a short time.

How Do We Replace a Fob?

Fobs are more secure than traditional keys because they are programmed to work for individual cars only. Replacing the fob and the attached key occurs in stages. You can allow us to source for the generic or factory-made fob, or you can do it yourself, and we will program it for you.

It is easy to buy a fob out there and program it with the available instructions. However, it would be best if you had us to assist you in getting the right fob and program it right for security reasons. We always have a fob at hand to save you the time it takes to shop for one.

Our locksmiths have the skills and experience needed to program the fob and ensure that it meets your needs.

Once we have the parts, we will then get the instructions to program the fob. We have programmed several fobs in the past, and we may not need the instructions. However, new security measures come up every day, and we still confirm from the provided instructions.

There are several dangers to buying aftermarket keys for your car. Let us assist you in getting the right parts and program them right for you.

How Do We Program the Fob?

Every car brand has a different process to program its fob. We have the locksmith documentation from several car brands to make the process fast and straightforward. There may be a little dismantling of your car’s interior, and we may also need to open the onboard car diagnostic port. After we program the fob, we can reinstall the dismantled panels.

We ensure that no harm comes to your car as we have the right tools to manipulate your vehicle’s computer.

While manipulating the computer, we invalidate the fob and lost key and program the new fob into the system. You will have to wait for the programmed fob to start being active – this is a security measure that ensures criminals do not have access to your car.

Whatever the process and the instructions from the manufacturer, we will be there to assist you.

How Long Does It Take to Replace a Key Fob?

The programming method the automaker has set will determine how long it takes to program the fob. If the process doesn’t require us to access the onboard diagnostics, the process is short and can take 10 minutes or less. If the process requires that we access the onboard diagnostics port, we will do it in about 20 minutes.

If you need other services, say to deprogram lost key fobs or cut another key to attach to the fob, the process will take a little longer. Regardless of the service you need, we ensure that we work as fast as possible. We do all this without sacrificing the quality of our work.

We are a team of reliable professionals that can work fast and still deliver impeccable results.
