Should you Repair or Replace a Car Key Fob?

Most modern cars on the road today use a key fob that allows keyless start and entry to your vehicle. However, this advanced technology can make things a little more tricky when emergency strikes. When you lose or damage your car key, you will need to have it either replaced or reprogrammed by a professional car locksmith.

Depending on the situation and condition of your car key, depends on what service can be done. For example, if you have lost your car key, it will need to be completely replaced and reprogrammed. If your car key is damaged (and salvageable), it is possible that it can be repaired.

What to do when you’ve lost or damaged your Car Key Fob

If you’ve lost or damaged your car key and require a replacement, you have a few options. You can go to a dealership, which can be timely and expensive, and they could even turn you away if you didn’t originally purchase your vehicle from them. Not what you want to hear when you’re probably already stressed.

You also have the option of purchasing a car key fob online, however you will still need an auto locksmith to programme it to your vehicle. Again, this route can involve unnecessary extra waiting and costs.

Especially when an auto locksmith will be able to provide the whole service for you (including the key fob) that very same day.

If the battery in your car key fob has died, which happens more often than we think, then we can also get this replaced promptly.
