Should I try to program a fob myself?

Not necessarily, but keep in mind it won't be possible to do this with all types of vehicles. The first thing you need to do is locate a blank remote. You will also need the instructions for programming the fob. Be certain that the fob you find is blank or your programming efforts will fail.

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.

The time it takes to complete this job depends on the steps we must take for programming. Your wait time will be shorter when our locksmith technicians don't need to access the diagnostics portal of your vehicles. The average time for all types of jobs is typically under 20 minutes depending on make and model of the car and difficulty of the fob system.

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.
