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.

Some people start this job only to end up frustrated because the tools they need aren't available to the public. You can save yourself this type of aggravation by contacting our company at the start of the project. Another potential drawback to programming your own fob is that some methods of self-instruction require you to have extra keys available for your car already.

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.

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. The choice to self-program a fob isn't available with every type of vehicle. It will cost you the least amount of money at the time of service, but it's very likely you will pay more later when the replacement breaks due to improper programming or another common error. In a situation like this, it's best to go with spending the least over the life of the car and gaining the greatest return on investment. We are certain that our professional locksmithing service offers you that.

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.

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?
