Dead Key FOB

Dead Key FOB

The Dead Key FOB App is Back-up Plan, a utility, to get you into your push-button vehicle and underway when the battery in your key fob goes flat.

And it will go flat. Sooner than you will be ready for. Why? Because the very nature of a keyless start system requires that the key fob attempt to be in constant radio contact with your vehicle. The end result the battery in your keyless start system’s key fob will be depleted in two years or less.

Is there a standard ‘hard’ key? Yes, and we’ll show you how to retrieve it. And special attention to Audi, Jaguar, Lexus, Volkswagen and Volvo owners: the keyhole is hidden – just to make the car look better! And the instructions to find are now locked in your car in your owner’s manual!

And worse, there is no standard way to start your car. This app will show you: 29 distinct starting variations (General Motors and Hyundai/Kia use six different ways each and Ford another four!); 13 variations on retrieving the mechanical key, and six variations for getting into your vehicle. They are shown by vehicle manufacturer.

The battery in your key fob WILL go dead, but there IS a back-up plan! And we can help.

The App is a good-faith effort to find every possible option for getting in and starting a push-button start car with a dead key fob. Get it today!
