Does AutoZone Program Car Remotes or Key Fobs?
Well yes and no. AutoZone and many of the other big box auto parts retailers do have car remotes and key fobs to sell. They come with instructions to self-program those remotes in. Some stores will help you with that programming. But the stock they have is limited. Only a few vehicles have On Board Programming (OBP), a majority of remotes have to be done by a dealership or a certified locksmith with the proper equipment to get into the vehicles computer and memory to coordinate the codes within. The next factor to consider is time and money.
Between a Dealership and a Locksmith, the dealership will generally cost more. Quite often twice as much as what the locksmith would charge. The Locksmith will also cost you less time with no hidden or additional fees. The dealership has a huge showroom facility they must maintain, and a locksmith just has their small shop. So, they can pass the savings on to you. The Locksmith is also a specialist. They handle both the remotes and the keys involved with starting and securing your vehicle. If there are any tricks or difficulties that each car can present, they will be able to address them quicker than a dealership that doesn't come across them every day.
