How to Start Your Car with a Dead Key Fob


If your keyless entry fob stops working – either because the battery died or it was damaged – it might seem like you don’t have a way to open or start your car.

You can always call us at (866) 900-8854 for help, but what if it is late at night? Or you’re trying to get into a car you’re not familiar with, such as a rental car or your friend’s car?

We found a free app that can be very helpful when the fob isn’t working.

The Dead Key Fob App provides you with instructions and illustrations for getting into and starting a push-button start car from 17 manufacturers. There are 13 variations for retrieving the standard mechanical key and several different ways for getting into the vehicle – including getting past the hidden keyholes in some models. The app will also show you different options for starting the vehicle when the key fob is dead.

It’s a handy app to have.
