Honolulu CAR KEY AND FOB REPLACEMENT SERVICES

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.

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.

Some people start this job only to end up frustrated because the tools they need aren't available to the public. You can save yourself this type of aggravation by contacting our company at the start of the project. Another potential drawback to programming your own fob is that some methods of self-instruction require you to have extra keys available for your car already.

Can you recommend the best key fob replacement options?

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 does this process take?

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.

You can expect the service call to take longer if you need a key cut or deprogrammed. Even so, our expert technicians will complete the job as quickly as possible while still maintaining the highest standard of quality. You never have to worry about us sacrificing excellent service just to get the job done fast. That is because our locksmiths are professional enough to work quickly while providing the highest quality of service at the same time.

Should I plan to have my vehicle nearby at the same time you program the 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.

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.
