Before a remote will work it has to be programmed into the car. The programming process requires you to bring us the vehicle that you want a factory replacement remote programmed into. This service doesn’t require an appointment and usually takes 5 – 15 minutes depending on the process involved. The price to program your remote will vary depending on the required steps to introduce the remote to the car. Call or stop by our shop for your estimate!
Different Types of Programming
Advanced On-Board Programming is a method of remote or key program that requires simple tools to perform.
The simple tool generally needed is a jumper wire or the pulling of fuses. Its important to know what you’re doing before shorting any connectors in your vehicle.
(example – “Insert your ignition key and turn to the ‘on’ position. Using an already programmed remote, press ‘lock’ for 4 – 10 seconds….”
This programming is fairly time consuming but when all else fails we can still get you going! Very few locksmiths are capable of this level of key programming. For the most advanced of jobs we do have an out of state partner that can program these via the mail. If you own a vehicle that requires the use of our out of state partner, please be aware that extra time will be needed.
