If you lose your car’s key fob for remote keyless entry, you can buy a universal remote that may be programmed for your car with the K2 from Keyless Ride.
Keyless Ride claims it is offering one of the first such universal OEM replacement keyless entry remotes, and it will display the system at CES in January.
With K2, retailers no longer need to stock hundreds of replacement remotes. The K2 works with up to 70 percent of North American vehicles, says Keyless Ride.
Also, each remote works with two cars so you don’t need to carry a fob for your spouse’s vehicle.
The K2 , “offers the same functionality as the factory original and works on vehicles up to and including the current model year,” said the company.
As long as the customer knows the year, make and model of his car, the fob can be configured to his vehicle. There’s a 5 minute activation procedure.
The K2 is offered by Secured Mobility based in Austin, TX and San Jose, CA metro areas, doing business as KeylessRide and Street Keys.
K2 be on display at Booth #2306 at CES in January in Las Vegas.
