Modern vehicle keys are far more secure than earlier keys and the vast majority today, have a remote control lock and unlock facilities. The key and the vehicle need to be paired to ensure safe and secure operation of the remote locking facility.
Programming of the keys requires specialised equipment, to programme the key to the car. You can have your key programmed for any make and model of car at either of the Alastair Reid Garages locations.
Almost all cars are now locked and unlocked using a high security central locking system operated by remote control, that includes all models of car. Key fobs are particularly secure and need to be replaced correctly.
Alastair Reid Garages can provide and program any remote or replacement key fob for all cars at excellent competitive rates.
Car remote fobs are normally very reliable, lasting for years. Therefore, if your remote does stop working, the most likely cause is the battery in the fob, a simple replacement should suffice in most cases. Alastair Reid Garages can supply batteries and test key fobs.
If your key fob stops working, is intermittent or erratic in operation, then call in to Alastair Reid Garages to have the remote checked.
