Phoenix CAR KEY AND FOB REPLACEMENT SERVICES
Frequently Asked Questions
What is a fob for keys?
A fob is a device that interacts with your car's electronics. It can complete several different functions, including opening and locking the doors and starting the car. Some fobs are equipped to open a car's doors and start the vehicle without the driver ever even touching it. A fob can be a separate device, or it could be part of a mechanical key set. Typically, manufacturers of fobs use hard plastic and they include buttons you can press to get them to perform specific functions. As you can imagine, losing your fob can be an ordeal. The good news is that We are available 24 hours a day to help restore or replace yours.
Will you be able to replace my key fob?
This is one of the basic service we offer, which means we will have no problem completing it for you. Once a locksmith arrives at your location, he or she will learn about the specifications for your car in order to match it to a new key fob.

Would anything bad happen if I program my own fob?
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.
Another thing you should know is that you might not be able to locate all of the tools you need to complete this job. That is because they are only available to professional locksmiths. Rather than go through this aggravation, just call us and have us do the work from the very beginning.
What options do I have to replace a key fob?
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.
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?
We typically quote a job time ranging from 10 to 20 minutes. However, this isn't an absolute. Your fob replacement could take more or less time depending on whether it's a manual or electrical system as well as the number of required steps. In the event that our locksmiths don't need to access your car's diagnostic portal, the total time for replacement is typically less.
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 can only create a replacement for your fob when the vehicle is in the same vicinity. This is the best way for us to make sure that the programming we just completed works as expected. We do understand that your car may not be drivable, so we are happy to come to your location to complete programming of your fob. Regardless of your location here or in the nearby communities, we're available to help you any time that you need us. It doesn't matter if it's day, evening, night, on a weekend, or on a holiday.
