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 explain the different options I have for key fob replacement?

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.

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?

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 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.
