Regarding the hard key, this may sound a little cheesy but can't I take the hard key out of my key fob and simply keep that on my key ring? It's small and lightweight compared to the key fob itself, but it does have a large head on it.

I'm assuming the key that goes with the electronic fob is a physical key that goes on your key ring.

I am curious about that as well?

You have it correct, I do carry keys and will continue to do so.

I was not aware the physical key designed for the card fit inside the card, I thought it just came with the card as a physical key to be on a key ring.

I am not understanding your question.


the Smart card has its own physical key that stores inside the smart card, you don't have to have it cut, you can leave it as a blank and carry the key from your regular fob if you want.

to me it defeats the purpose. I have no keys and have no desire to carry keys. My house is all smart locks, the car is smart locks, everything is keyless. but I guess if you have to carry keys then it isn't a big deal.
Thanks for the info Mr Incredible. I carry keys and have been trying to get away from keys. I am not well educated on these matters . 👍

Fyi there a number of aftermarket key fob replacement options availible for significantly less (over a hundred $) than dealer prices which include programming instructions, clearly a profit center for the dealer.

@Mr. Incredible How do you lock / unlock the car with the smart key? Do the smart key have physical lock/unlock buttons?

@Vpops Can you post some links to the aftermarket key fob replacement options?
