Cincinnati CAR KEY AND CAR KEY FOB REPLACEMENT SERVICE
Frequently Asked Questions
What are key fobs?
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.
Do your locksmiths know how to replace a 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. The next step is to program the fob and test it to ensure it works correctly. We understand that no one wants to be without the key fob for their car. We encourage you to contact us for immediate service as soon as you know that the fob needs replacement. Our technicians have extensive knowledge about car security and will provide you with better service than you would receive at a dealership for a lower cost.
Can you program my fob too?
We are experts with this skill as well. Every one of our locksmith technicians has several years of combined education and experience to program both manual and electric fobs. We can also deprogram your current set of keys to make sure that it doesn't interfere with how your new set interacts with your car's computer. When it comes to vehicle safety, it's not worth it to cut corners just to save a few dollars. You don't want to leave your car vulnerable for anyone to get into to steal your valuables inside or even the car itself. Remember that our company is just a phone call awayhere and that we respond to service calls at all hours.
Is replacing a fob difficult?
Too many variables are at play to answer a simple yes or no to this question. For starters, we need to know the make and model of your vehicle. In most cases, we can find a new fob for you right away. It's easier to do when you only need an unbranded and general fob, but we have no problem replacing a factory-made fob as well. We will complete this task as quickly as possible so you don't have to spend any more time than necessary dealing with a car lock issue.

Is it possible for me to program my own key fob?
Since every make and model of car is so different, we can't answer this question with complete certainty. However, it may be possible in some situations. It requires you to obtain a blank remote as well as the correct instructions for programming the key fob. The reprogramming won't work if someone programmed the remote previously and it is no longer blank.
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?
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.
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?
The time it takes to complete this job depends on the steps we must take for programming. Your wait time will be shorter when our locksmith technicians don't need to access the diagnostics portal of your vehicles. The average time for all types of jobs is typically under 20 minutes depending on make and model of the car and difficulty of the fob system.
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.
Replacing the fob of your car can be time-consuming when you assume that you need to figure out how to do it yourself because it's hard to trust others with your car. As our customer, you don't have to worry about our workers damaging your vehicle with scratches or dents when completing a job. We are so certain of the quality of our work that we guarantee your complete satisfaction. You will soon see that it was a good decision to allow us to complete the work on your key fob and not experience the frustration of trying to do it yourself.
