So, you have your key, but your car says "Key Not Detected". Now what?
The Dead Key FOB App is your Back-up Plan, an instruction utility to get you into your push-button start vehicle and get you underway when the battery in your key fob -- your car's remote control -- goes flat.
And the Key FOB 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 no time. At the worst time!
-- Yes, your dealer can help -- if they are open and you get the right person.
-- And, yes, the instructions are in your owners manual -- if you can find them. Give it a try! We'll still be here after you've searched through 400 or 500 or more pages.
-- Roadside assistance? About all they can offer is a tow truck...
-- Did you borrow or rent the car??? Be prepared!
Is there a standard ‘hard’ key? Yes, and we’ll show you how to retrieve it. And special attention to Audi, BMW, Cadillac, Chevrolet, Hyundai, Jaguar, Kia, Lexus, Volkswagen and Volvo owners: the keyhole may be hidden! Just to make the car look better! And the instructions to find are now locked in your car in your owner’s manual!
Worse, there is no standard way to start the car. The Dead Key FOB App will show you: over 30 distinct starting variations (General Motors and Hyundai/Kia use six different ways each, Ford another four while Mazda and Honda/Acura three each!); 13 variations on retrieving the mechanical key, and multiple variations for getting into your vehicle if you can't find the key hole. They are shown by vehicle manufacturer.

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