Is it possible for me to program my own key 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.

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

Can you explain the different options I have for key fob replacement?

You have three options when it comes to replacing a key fob. However, working with a professional locksmith organization is always the most attractive one. A second option you have, although we don't consider it to be a good option, is to take your key fob directly to the dealership. They will typically have the key fob available to sell to you and can do the programming for you as well. Unfortunately, some dealerships take advantage of your obvious need and charge you a very high fee. The third option is to complete the fob programming on your own.

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?

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 you need my car to be there when you're working on programming my fob?

Yes, we would appreciate this as we are unable to make a fob replacement unless your vehicle is right there. This ensures that we can test the programming before sending you on your way. 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. If you're stranded because of your car lock problem, please locate a safe location to wait until we arrive.
