Key and fob replacement tips
There are several ways to save replacement keys and fobs. The first thing to do is always have a spare. You always need at least two keys. One should allow you to keep you and use it on a daily basis, and the other should be stored in a safe place. If you have more than one driver in your household, it’s a good idea to have at least two sets of keys and fobs.
When buying a new car, be sure to get two keys from your dealer and negotiate a third set as part of your purchase or build it to fit your car’s purchase budget. Having a spare means that you can get in the car and start a business without the immediate cost or delay of making a replacement. You can then search for the best deals on replacement key services. Getting stuck without a spare means paying the shop or dealer the cost of towing the car, in addition to replacing the key fob.
It is also important to check the vehicle warranty and insurance coverage. Some basic warranty covers keyed replacement of broken fobs. Extended warranty may also apply. Alternatively, the dealer may have sold a key protection package when you purchased the car. Your insurance or roadside assistance program may also cover the exchange of rays.
Losing or destroying a car key fob can incur unexpected and unexpected costs. Depending on the age of your car and the level of convenience and security technology built into the fob, you have the option of saving money, but I think this is a cheap endeavor that would have been decades ago. Please do not. Dealers are the best bet for quick one-stop fixes, but probably the most expensive option. A mobile locksmith may come to you and offer you great savings. If you have an older vehicle and a spare fob, you may be able to remotely replace and program the fob or keyless entry.
