How Does Key Fob Replacement Work?

Key fobs are a great way to access a vehicle without having to dig through your pockets or purse. But what happens when they stop working? Key fob replacement can be done by any locksmith. Here’s how it works:

What does a car key fob do?

Before learning the process of replacing a key fob, let’s check first how a key fob works. The key fob is a small remote that can be used to lock and unlock the car, as well as open and close the trunk. It has a button for each of these functions, but it also has additional buttons, depending on your car’s model.

The key fob is powered by a battery. If you’re trying to start or stop your engine with your key fob, you may notice that sometimes it takes several tries before the car starts, this is because there’s only so much power in the battery. If you find yourself unable to start your vehicle after several tries, check its battery first, if this doesn’t work, call a locksmith so they can help get you back on the road again safely and securely.

Process of replacing a car key fob.

Key fob programming can be confusing for anyone, even for car vendors. It may seem like a simple matter of pressing a few buttons on your key fob to set up your vehicle’s security system. But there are several steps involved in this process and some of them aren’t always obvious.

In addition to setting up security settings using the appropriate buttons on your key fob or another electronic device, you must also input codes manually into each module or chipset of the vehicle’s security system that is connected during installation. These modules include:

  • Door modules (which control door locks and unlock/lock systems)
  • Trunk lid module (which controls trunk lid opening)

There are numerous reasons for replacing a key fob.

Some of the most common include the following:

  • Lost keys.
  • Stolen keys.
  • Broken or malfunctioning keys.
  • Extra/spare key.
