Would anything bad happen if I program my own 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. Keep in mind it won't work right unless it's blank and no one attempted to program it previously.
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?
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. Most dealerships will sell you the fob you need as well as program it. Lastly, you can attempt to program the fob by yourself.
In order to complete the third option, you first need to search online to find the replacement fob and then figure out how to interpret the directions and complete the job. Keep in mind this option isn't available for every type of car. Although doing it yourself may cost the least, it could leave you with additional problems that you will need to pay to fix later. It's best to start the process working with a locksmith from our company. We offer extremely competitive prices and guarantee professional and prompt help with your issue. You can't go wrong with quality products and workmanship and pricing that doesn't take advantage of you.
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.
Your time will be on the longer end if we need to deprogram or cut a key. However, our technicians respect your time and will always work as quickly as possible while still providing excellent service. We would much rather have our locksmith take a little extra time than do an incomplete or unsafe job.
Do I need to have my car present when you program my key fob?
Yes. We can only create a replacement for your fob when the vehicle is in the same vicinity. This is the best way for us to make sure that the programming we just completed works as expected.
