We at Look2 Locksmith Calgary keep our phase and continue to innovate to serve and provide the highest level of service and satisfaction.
What is a key fob?
A key fob is a keyless entry remote transmitter and serves as a security device for the car.
When you press the button, you can hear a loud horn from where the car is; the key fob will transmit a signal to the nearby car’s system and allow the owner to unlock their vehicle from a distance.
The owner can access the car security system and enable keyless entry to the vehicle in a place full of cars such as condominiums, residential, parking garages, offices, and public facilities.
This makes looking for your car in a vast parking lot a lot easier.
How to replace your car’s key fob?
Damage or broken key fobs can happen to anyone.
If you badly need to replace your car key fob, here are the things you must consider.
Check Your Car Warranty
Before hiring a locksmith, you must first check your car’s warranty and insurance to see if your provider covers the damaged key.
Some providers include key fob warranty, so you wouldn’t need to hire a car locksmith; instead, you can go to the dealer where you bought it and let them handle the replacement.
Modern cars have extended warranty coverage and cover key-fob-related issues.
Contact The Dealer
Many vehicle manufacturers provide the service of replacing or reprogramming lost or damaged key fobs.
Present-day vehicles have programmed key fobs with codes, where it has to undergo reprogramming before it unlocks the door in the event of lost key fobs.
Some manufacturers give the codes only to their dealers with the equipment and knowledge to program the particular car.
Although a bit more expensive, contacting your car dealer is recommended, especially with the brands that have extreme security.
Order Online And Do-It-Yourself
Nowadays, placing an order online at the comfort of your home is very trendy.
Luckily, some key fobs are available on this platform.
All you have to do is look for your car model on the website, inquire about the key fobs, place an order and pay via credit or cash.
Ordering online is also the cheapest method of replacing your car key fob.
You can also do it yourself by watching videos and reading manuals.
However, not all key fobs are available online, especially high-end vehicles.
Call A Car Locksmith
Locksmith is way cheaper than bringing your car to the dealer and letting them fix it.
You can also save time and effort by calling locksmith shops since they are dispersed in several locations and can go to where you are any time of the day.
Typically, the locksmith will ask questions about the car make, year and model to prepare the necessary tools to fix the issue.
You better get yourself handy with the complete car details.
How to replace key fob on residential or establishments?
Like cars, modern houses have security systems installed and have access through a key fob.
It has the same function as a car key fob where it arms and disarms your home’s security system when you click the device.
The manufacturer specially encrypts some residential or establishment key fobs.
The encryption is exclusive and needs proof of ownership to access the system.
Calling a professional locksmith is one of the best and cheaper ways.
They can instantly go to your location and rescue your locked-out vehicle by giving them a call.
Key Fob Copying Services
They are websites or companies that offer to duplicate electronic key fobs.
All you have to do is fill out the form asking about the details of the lost or missing key fob and provide the serial number to see if they can copy the exact model.
You will need to show proof, documents, or certificates to exhibit ownership of the vehicle.
