Why are My Automobile Keys Not Working?

It never fails.  You’re late for meeting.  Your kids are late for school.  Or, you’re late for school.  And, your automobile key isn’t unlocking the door or starting the car.  Or, your remote key (i.e. key fob) isn’t functioning?  Why?

Instead of screaming or getting a stomach/headache, let’s try and figure it out.  Here are some common reasons why you’re in your current predicament:

•    Dying or Dead Key Fob Batteries:   this is usually why remote keys / key fobs stop working.  Always check the batteries first before going on to any other cause.

•    Your Key is Worn / Damaged:  as time passes, keys wear.  We harshly toss them into purses and pockets and sometimes drop them onto the ground and other hard surfaces, causing chips, twists, and breaks.    This can render them useless.

•    Internal Damage:  for the aforementioned reasons and sometimes for unknown reasons, connecters inside a remote key/ key fob wear and weaken.  Eventually, the key won’t let the user get into the automobile or start it.

•    Improper or Inferior Quality Key Duplication:  sometimes, an untrained, uncertified locksmith improperly duplicates a key.  When that happens, it simply will not work.  Make sure you copy your keys with a trained and certified locksmith.

•    Un-programmed Key:  a remote key / key fob needs to be programmed or set to your automobile in order to work.  Sometimes, dead batteries, replacing the batteries, certain WIFIs, and other systems trigger a remote key to un-program.

While you could always replace a battery, contacting a trained, certified locksmith is the best way to fix these issues.
