Frequently Asked Questions
Have questions about how this all works and whether or not we can replace your particular auto fob? Read through below see some of our most commonly asked questions and answers.
Can you duplicate my particular auto fob or remote?
Enter the make, model, and year of your vehicle into our Key ID tool (Key ID tool).
I see multiple remotes that are similar to mine after I enter the make, model, and year of my car. How do I know which remote to pick?
Try and compare your original remote to the remote images that are displayed on the Key ID tool and select the one that matches. We advise that you start by double-checking the button configurations. Depending on the make and model of your automobile, you may be eligible for a Universal Car Key. This will be indicated after you enter your vehicle’s make, model, and year on the Key ID tool
I have a quote from my car dealership or another locksmith to program or duplicate my car fob – will you price match it?
We will! Simply provide us with your quote in writing and will attempt to price match what you’ve been offered by the car dealership prices for replacement keys, remotes, and programming.
What if I don’t have an original remote and am unsure of what it looks like?
Give us a call or email message. We’d be happy to assist you.
I don’t see my model or year listed. What should I do?
Please call or email us directly. Some keys are very similar making it difficult to distinguish between them online. One of our professionals can help clarify which remote to purchase.
Why do I need to have my remote/key programmed by a professional? Can I do it myself?
Car manufacturers intentionally complicate the car key/remote duplication process as a theft prevention measure. “Smart keys”, which require a combination of advanced technology and automotive locksmithing expertise to program correctly, are the outcome. Such precision entails that even the smallest of programming mistakes can void all working sets of keys to the vehicle or worse, completely wipe the on-board computer. An immobilized car means the hassle of a tow to the dealership, as well as wasted time and money.
Most newer vehicle models require remotes and keys to be programmed before they will function, but not all remotes/keys require special programming. Some can be programmed by the customer, by following instructions provided by our technicians at pick-up. Questions about your particular vehicle? Give us a call.
Is the key cutting service included with the programming fee?
No, the programming fee does not include key cutting. Key cutting prices typically range between $4.00-$50.00, but can be higher depending on the difficulty. Please check with us before ordering if you have any questions.
How long will it take to program my new key or remote?
The average time to program a new key or remote is between 5-15 minutes, however every vehicle calls for a different procedure. Please plan to allow our technicians up to 30 minutes for programming; 45 minutes during peak hours (between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m.). We strive to serve our customers as quickly as possible, without sacrificing the quality that we have provided for years. Feel free to call our technicians ahead of time for a more accurate estimation of the length of your visit.
