Default Door Lock Keychain

Question, does anyone know what the key chain thing is called that unlocks your doors as well as has the panic button and alarm? There is very little on the web that tells what the name of it is.

I lost mine and there is only one door lock to unlock from the outside. Does anyone know around what one of these would cost or if I could even get a replacement?

Thanks

They are called a Key Fob, not too sure as to the cost to replace it.

it is called a FOB, which is a short form of FOBIK, which means Frequency Operated Button Integrated Key

you can get a replacement from your dealership, most times they will also charge you to reprogram it

a CERTIFIED LOCKSMITH can also get them & usually program it for a bit less than the dealers price

some automotive audio & alarm places can order them, i don't know IF they can program it for you

another source is eBay, BUT if you buy it through them, make sure it has the correct number of buttons as your working FOB, even more important is that the ad reads BRAND NEW in Package, never used, a unit that is once programmed for any vehicle including one that is exactly like yours will NOT work!!!

1 website that i looked at, i don't know if they are trustworthy or not reads
2003 Dodge Ram Truck Keyless Entry Remote
Dealer Price: $70.00
Our Price: $39.95
http://www.carandtruckremotes.com/do...k-remotes.html

this is a eBay site that reads NEW, read the bottom of the page, it reads about what i mentioned about eBay FOBs. at that price i would contact them & order 2 of them, after getting assurance from them that they will work & are NEW as advertised
