A dead or malfunctioning key fob is a big problem. While most vehicles have some backup method of operating your vehicle, you'll still want to replace your fob as quickly as possible. Fortunately, Batteries Plus can help. Many of our stores offer fob replacement and other key-related services. These participating locations can help you with everything from programming a new fob to replacing the battery in your old one. Here's a brief rundown of our key services, including how much you'll save, how long it takes and what type of fobs we program.

Do I Need to Buy a Replacement Key Fob at a Dealership?

When most people need a new key fob, they're forced to order a replacement through their dealership. Unfortunately, most dealerships charge a premium for this service and a new fob could end up costing you up to several hundred dollars. Plus, you're stuck waiting weeks for your new fob to arrive.

At Batteries Plus, we offer key fob replacement for up to 50% less than the dealership cost. Since we perform most of our service onsite, most auto fobs can be completed in about an hour. Best of all, our key fob services are covered by a six-month limited warranty.
