Like to avoid the high cost of the dealerships? Unsure about the quality of key fobs offered online?

Are you thinking ... The dealerships are too expensive, I'll save money and buy it online!

Are you thinking ... What if I take the chance and buy it online, then how do I get it programmed?  Now, in Grand Rapids MI we are offering an alternative!


Car keys and key fobs sold online don't have to be OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) approved!  This means the vendors selling online are not required to sell Factory Brand items.  If you buy an after-market item, understand they are not made with the same level of consistency or quality to be compatible with all vehicles. (We have an inconsistent level of success with programming the after-market items).  

NOTE:  Need to be specific was to whether your car is equipped with "push button start".  Fobic will look exactly the same as the one without push button start, but will not work with your vehicle!

Some remotes and car keys can be self-programmed, meaning you can do it yourself.  Information can be found online from many sources. Unfortunately, not all are completely accurate or easily understandable.  Also, many instructions online will help you program the buttons (in the case of a remote head key or fobic) but not the transponder chip itself. In order for the vehicle to start, the transponder chip inside needs to be paired to the vehicle, with special equipment, not available to the general public.
