What is a Car Key Fob?
Key fobs, sometimes called remote key heads and car remotes, are electronic controls that allow keyless entry for modern cars and trucks. Sometimes they’re separate units, like little remote controls, that you keep on your keychain. Other models are integrated into the head of the car key itself, which is why they’re sometimes called remote head keys.
How Do Key Fobs Work?
Remote key fobs work by emitting an invisible pulse of light that your car can sense. Most remotes work on a frequency of 300Mhz-320Mhz. When you press one of the buttons on the key fob, the car’s onboard computer does what you signaled for it to do. This can vary with the model, from super simple lock/unlock signals to more sophisticated alarm triggers, remote starts and trunk opening signals. Some key fobs get very complex, which is why LockTech only employs licensed, certified and fully insured locksmiths who have a solid grounding in the technology of remote key fobs.
Key Fob Services We Offer
There isn’t much that your key fob needs that LockTech’s trained auto locksmiths can’t help you with. Every call is unique, but in general, your electronic car remote occasionally needs:
- Key fob programming, so it works with your car and doesn’t interfere with others’ remote signals
- Key fob replacement, in case yours is ever lost or broken
- Key fob battery replacement, which doesn’t usually have to be done often, but older fobs can run low on power and need a change sometimes
It’s a good idea to get replacement key fobs programmed by professionals who can guarantee their work since these can be somewhat complicated pieces of equipment. For the same reason, you might want to leave the business of taking the key fob apart and changing out its battery to a qualified auto locksmith who you can be sure won’t damage the sensitive wires and circuit boards inside your car remote.
