How Do I Find Out What Key Fob My Car Needs?

Posted by Keyless Entry Remote on Nov 26th 2013

A lot of people ask me "what key fob do I need for my car??  There are a couple ways to find this information out.  To find the correct part number take a look at your current key fob.  On the back there should be some numbers, match those numbers with the numbers on this fob, if they match it will work.  If you don't have a remote to compare to try giving your local dealership a call, ask for service, then ask them for your key fob part number.  They will ask you for your vin # so have that handy.

Once you have the key fob part number, visit our webiste and search for that part number.  You can also search our free key fob programming instructions blog to see if you are able to program the key fob to your vehicle yourself or if you will need professional help in doing this.

Now you might have a vehicle that has a more than one key fob part number that is compatible with the vehicle, this is fine, just order any of the key fob remotes that are compatible.

I know this sounds like a lot of work, but ordering a key fob from us and programming the remote yourself will save you $100 or more most times.  When all is said and done it should take you about 30-60 minutes to find the part number, order it, and get it programmed to your vehicle.

Having trouble programming the remote or just want a professional to program the remote for you? Enter your city or zip code in the search box below to find a professional key fob installer in your area.
