Subaru Keyless Battery Replacement Service

Keyless Fob Battery Replacement for Your Subaru in Santa Cruz

These days, not many people have a key that they have to put into the door of their vehicle to enter. The whole concept of a keyless entry to your vehicle is prevalent. We all enjoy the convenience of just walking to the car having it unlocked once we arrive at the location. This is a quality feature that makes it easy, especially if you carry grocery bags, children, or whatever else before you approach the ride. Over time, though, the key fob battery is going to begin to die out. This is where our team comes in to help with a keyless battery replacement for our Santa Cruz customers.

How a Keyless Entry Works

The whole concept of a keyless entry system is not anything new, but it also brings with it a great deal of mystery. Just how does the car know that you are near it and what makes it unlock? It all has to do with the fob and the signals that it sends out when you are walking up to the vehicle. The unique signal is looking for your car at all times. When you walk up to your car, it connects with the signal of your vehicle, causing the car to unlock. It is a great piece of technology that also works when you go to turn on the vehicle. The one issue with the system is it relies on the fob to have power at all times. If there is no power in the fob, it has no way to send out a signal, and thus no way to unlock your car doors or start your vehicle. This is when you need to revert to a more traditional physical key entry.

Replacing the Battery

The usual problem when it comes to a key fob that no longer works is the key fob battery. The battery will die out over time and when it does, you need to swap it out. Once the car is not regularly unlocking as it should, that is a fair indication that you have a battery dying out. We can assist with the replacement.

Whether it is a Subaru or another make and model of vehicle, we will do our best to give you the necessary attention to get that keyless entry working once again.
