Sherlock's Locksmith had a successful project in Pittsburgh, PA, where we provided our expertise in key fob reprogramming. Our client was having trouble with their Hyundai key fob, so they called us for help because they could not unlock or start the car using it. This project shows our dedication to providing top-notch locksmith services and putting customer satisfaction at the forefront.
Scope of Services
Key Fob Assessment
The client's key fob stopped working right after replacing the main battery in their Hyundai vehicle. Our certified car locksmith carefully looked at the client's Hyundai key fob to figure out the issue. As we suspected, replacing the main battery interrupted the communication between the battery and the vehicle's security system. This first evaluation helped us to come up with a specific solution.
We reprogrammed the key fob using modern tools and techniques. After we configured the key fob's settings, we verified they were correct and working. This reset aimed to make a secure connection with the car upon reconnecting the main battery.
After reprogramming the Hyundai key fob, we made sure it worked perfectly by putting it through a series of functional tests. We left no room for mistakes and worked hard to ensure the key fob would again function as expected.
Key Fob Reprogramming After Replacing the Car's Main Battery
A key fob for a vehicle may need reprogramming in several situations. That is especially true when you replace the battery with the key fob. This step could be necessary for a variety of reasons:
Loss of Power
The key fob may lose power temporarily when you replace the car's main battery or get loose or disconnected wires. A small battery inside the fob usually powers the electronics on key fobs. However, these electronics also need the battery in the car to communicate with the security system. If you disconnect or remove the main battery, this communication stops.
Resetting the Vehicle's Computer
Once you disconnect the main battery, you must reset the vehicle's computer systems. That includes the systems that recognize and communicate with the key fob. After this reset, the key fob might need to be reprogrammed to make a secure link with the car again upon connecting the main battery.
Modern cars have high-tech safety features, and key fobs are an important part of these systems. Such a key fob and the car's computer system must be in sync for safety. If you disconnect the main battery, the system might see it as a security risk. You must reprogram it so only enabled key fobs can access and start the car.
