Should I try to program a fob myself?
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.
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 will it take to replace my fob?
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. 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. Due to the extensive experience our locksmiths bring to their jobs, this normally goes quickly as well. 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. 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.
