Keyless entry remote
system comes standard with most late model vehicles. Remote keyless entry ( RKE
) controls are design to remotely lock, or unlock the vehicle from several feet away from the vehicle. As an additional feature most keyfob
controls allow trunk opener button, alarm (sometimes as a security option and sometimes just horn button). For more expensive cars you may also find a remote starter
feature. Late model SUVs and minivans can also come with the remote openers that allow power doors, and the rear gate of lift gate to be operated from the remote control key fob
. Most cars also have alarms to alert unauthorized activity or theft attempt. There are many phrases to describe the system, depending on manufacturer, type of a device and personal preference of end user. Most common names include keyless entry remote system, smart remote system, remote start system, automatic car starter, remote starter for cars, remote clicker, remote door opener, car keyfob
or simply key fob. Everyone has its own favorite phrase on how to call their car alarm security system remotes for their keyless entry control.
It is a common misconception that you can only buy, obtain a remote from a local car dealer. These days customers are not restricted to buying a remote keyless entry control from a dealer. Where to buy a replacement keyless entry remote
for my car? There are some reputable online stores, like us www.carandtruckremotes.com
, where you can purchase a brand new key fob
or even used remote
car door opener at discount prices. Sometimes our customer says that we sell those remote car door openers cheap comparing to a price at a local dealer. Most international customer, e. g. from Canada savings are even greater since most replacement remotes
and chipped keys are even more expensive in Canada and overseas.
For most makes and models, you can program the remote yourself with our just using your car key (in most cases it is a transponder chipped key
) and just the remote.
Most keyfobs or car alarm
remotes communicate with the vehicle using a code (it could be a fixed or rolling code). This is how your vehicle knows " which remote to listen to". Once the keyless entry module, the receiver is trained to recognize the remote key fob (very often called remote programming) your vehicle would recognize the remote control and perform the lock, unlock or other functions.
It does not matter if you have a just standard remote door opener
, remote keyless system alarm with door locks control or keyless entry remote start remote that makes your remote engine start

For the keyless entry remote systems that require programming by a dealer, it usually just takes less than 5 minutes to do. Our strategy with going to a dealer is, please show up and tell them. I have a keyless entry remote key fob
(or starter for your car) and I need to get it programmed. I know it only takes a couple of minutes to program or set up the remote for my vehicle. Can you please do that free of charge or a courtesy?
If your dealer is telling you that it takes an hour to program your remote, it simply means that they are being dishonest with you.
