Boston CAR KEY AND KEY FOB REPLACEMENT SERVICE

FAQs

What does a key fob do?

A fob for keys is a hand-held device that controls many of the electronic functions of your car. For example, the fob can lock and open your doors as well as start your car. With some fobs, you can even start your car without touching the steering wheel or ignition switch. You may see a fob as a stand-alone device or as one part of a mechanical set of keys. Fob manufacturers typically create them from hard plastic. You just push a button on your fob that corresponds with its unique function. Drivers depend on their fobs a lot these days. This makes losing one a real hassle. If that happens to you, just call us at any time of the day or night for immediate help.

Is it possible for me to program my own key 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.

What options do I have to replace a key fob?

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.

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?

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.

It takes time to replace a car key fob. It can also be an annoyance when you feel you need to do it yourself because you don't trust anyone else to do it. We will quickly earn your trust when you see how accurately and promptly we can fix your problem. Our company also guarantees the workmanship of every technician. Besides fixing your key fob, this means that you don't have to worry about someone scratching or denting your car when working on it. We wouldn't like someone doing this to our cars and we certainly won't do it to yours.

Our locksmiths chose this line of work because they enjoy helping people through a stressful situation.
