Jeep Key Fob Replacement
A Jeep key fob replacement is often a critical component so that you can do absolutely anything with your Jeep. Some of the newer models use keyless/remote start. Without your fob, you can’t lock or unlock your Jeep, pop the trunk, or get the ignition started.
It’s not uncommon to lose the fob simply because of the small size. If you’re out in the mud and realize that the fob is missing, there’s likely no chance of finding it.
Rather than panicking or calling for a tow truck, you can call us at Express Locksmith. We have the means of providing you with a replacement key fob. We’ll program it to your Jeep and have you back on the road (or the trail) in no time at all.
Whether you need a fob or a key replacement, we just need your VIN and proof of ownership.
Can I Replace the Batteries in My Jeep Key Fob?
Yes! Depending on the Jeep key fob that you take, it will either take a small lithium battery or a CR2032 battery. Most of the time, the battery will last between one and two years. If you keep your fob in your Jeep at all times, it can cause the battery to wear out faster.
When you replace the battery, you have to reprogram the key fob. The reason for this is because it automatically resets. Replacing the battery is easy but reprogramming can be time-consuming.
While you can get directions to handle replacing the battery online or within your owner’s manual, there’s an easier option. Call us to let our professional technicians handle the battery replacement.
Whether you’ve just received the notice that the battery is low, or your fob is completely dead, we can help. Our 24/7 dispatch services will ensure that we’ll get out to you right away.
How Much Does a Jeep Key & Key Fob Replacement Cost?
A Jeep key replacement can be expensive. If you go to the dealership, it may cost you $200 or more. It will depend on whether you need a key, a key fob, and even other parts.
When you visit the dealership, they’ll provide you with a genuine OEM fob and key. These are more expensive than aftermarket ones that work the same way. So, basically, you’re paying extra simply because they were manufactured by Jeep.
Additionally, there’s the labor involved with potentially cutting the key and programming the fob to your specific Jeep. Since dealerships don’t do this kind of thing all the time, it can take them longer – and they’ll charge you in 15-minute increments.
At Express Locksmith Houston, we handle key and key fob replacements all the time. We have the experience to work quickly and efficiently. We can provide a considerably lower cost than the dealership because of our use of quality aftermarket keys and fobs as well as our fast-programming time.
Different model year Jeeps will have various programming requirements. When you want to know how much it will cost for a Jeep key replacement or a Jeep key fob replacement, call us for a quote.
