Default Lost fob's!!

Good morning all,
I already know my situation is incredibly sh*tty, but somehow we ended up losing BOTH key fobs. My wife called dealer and they said it would be over $400 for new fob...(Push to Start) PLUS have to tow the car to their location to program new one. Does ANYONE out there have a cheaper solution to this problem? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Because we don't know the year and model of your vehicle, the following may or may not apply.
Late model vehicles will not allow you to lock the fob in the vehicle because the fob is still in the vehicle. If you leave a window down and attempt to lock the vehicle and attempt to close the door what happens?


I couldn't pass this up,
You may already know if you can't lock the vehicle one of the fobs IS in the vehicle.

I guess the emergency key attacked to the fob isn't much help if you can't find the fob.

We've looked all through the vehicle....under seats, in the trunk, every nook and crany...no key fob....very frustrating. Someone said you can't do a remote start through blue Link unless the fob is within a certain distance....not sure thats accurate.

If you were able to lock the vehicle ,WINDOW DOWN, then the fob is not anywhere in the vehicle.


Not to worry, as soon as you spend the $400 bucks for a new fob you will find the lost one(s).
Some locksmiths that are trained and have the proper equip may be able to help you , for a lot less$$.

What can you do to prevent this from happening again?
Maybe put a GPS on the remote FOB so it can sound off it if it lost??
