How much is it to replace a car key?

How much does it cost to replace my car’s key fob? I lost it last weekend and I need to buy a new one.

Answer
It usually costs between $150 to $600 to replace your key fob. Of course, the actual cost will vary depending on which type of car you have. More expensive cars tend to have advanced security systems, so a key fob will likely cost more for Mercedes-Benz than a Nissan.
Since key fobs can be expensive to replace, it’s probably best that you try to find yours before you buy a new one. Here are some helpful tips for keeping track of your keys in the future:
  • Buy a smart key finder, such as a Tile
  • Designate a key storage space
  • Use a belt hook
