 Thanks to modern technology, remote means of controlling and securing vehicles has become increasingly popular. Most car keys made since 1995 include a device that can receive and transmit radio signals, called a transponder chip. The chip allows you to disarm the immobilizer of your vehicle once you turn the key in the ignition to start it. A laser cut key will perform the same function (added security) as a VAT (Vehicle Anti-Theft) key. Furthermore, most cars today are keyless, controlled by electronic keys, and most physical keys are invariably attached to a small box, usually made from hard plastic, that includes a set of buttons to allow users to start the car remotely. Key fobs are these small plastic boxes. Smart keys are becoming smarter as technology advances, and more vehicle functions can be controlled by key fobs.

Modern Technology

The technological advance comes with certain problems. Modern technology has its growing pains. This can cause the transponder chip in the key to break or snap. Alternatively, the remote key fob can be lost, broken, or misplaced, and need replacing and/or reprogramming. Many other problems can arise. For instance, the lock and unlock buttons stop working, or they work intermittently, or the fob becomes water damaged, or the fob becomes worn. Our job is to fix that.

Key fob repair, replacement and recovery

Your key fob is a wireless remote that interacts with the electronics in your car. With the right programming, they can do many things, such as opening the doors, starting the car, and controlling the LCD system within the car. They can even function without being physically touched. The key fob is frequently attached to a mechanical key, but this trend is declining. 

Smart Key Duplication and Programming.

We offer professional key fob replacement for lost, locked, or broken keys. We can recover an existing fob or get you a new one, program it afresh, and perform any other fob-related tasks. Our technicians can replace your key fob. Generally we can program the key fob on the spot.

Nonetheless, the difficulty of key fob replacement varies. A variety of factors are involved, including the model of your vehicle, its manufacturer, etc. Our first option is to procure for you an unbranded key fob; it is the quickest and simplest option; the second option is to replace the proper factory made keys, which may take longer. But all in all, your priority is our aim; if you value time more, choose the former option, but if you have a little more time to spare, choose the latter.

Key fobs and push to start ignition

Push to start ignition is one of the most widely used and influential remote vehicle functions, allowing you to start your car with the push of a button. However, it also causes most problems. In one instance, a customer was left stranded inside her car when she returned from dropping her friend off at the airport. Her key fob was in her friend’s jacket pocket. The car shut down automatically when her friend left its range. In minutes we were able to save her from embarrassment. Our 24/7 service will be there for you the fastest if you need your key fob repaired or replaced in an emergency.  

Other services

We also provide laser cut keys, keys which, as the name implies, are cut with lasers for added security. The keys are stronger than regular keys and have greater precision. They also require specialized tools to cut, and professionals who know how to use said tools.

We can replace and make VATs (Vehicle Anti theft) keys as well. Like laser cut keys, VAT keys also add another layer of security. Every VAT key is loaded with chips that possess unique registers. If a regular locksmith without expert knowledge were to try replicating a VAT key, that key would fit into ignition, but it would fail to start the car.

I was very impressed with the efficiency and ease of getting two new keys made for my car.(I had called another place in town and they never even returned my call!) I spoke with a gentleman last evening, made appointment and Ilan was at my house this morning. He was polite, knowledgeable and has a good sence of humor! He even took a few moments and chatted with myself and elderly mother when he was done. Highly recommend this company, would not hesitate to use them again!!
Thanks again!!
