A quick fix for a broken Ford key fob
Last Updated on
There is a fairly simple fix. It requires some epoxy and a picture hangar frame.
- Clean the back of the fob
- Mix the epoxy
- Secure the hangar to the back of the fob. Be sure not to expoxy where the fob separates in the event you need to change the batte
The end result isn’t necessarily pretty but it works.
There are other options. You can purchase replacement key fobs for $10-$20 each. The key fobs have to be programmed to the vehicle. The process is a little tricky. The fobs come with instructions. I wasn’t sure if I would have to reprogram all of my fobs or not so I just fixed the key ring part.
Update November 2019
My repair finally failed. I found a set of two fobs on Amazon for about $10. The programming was easier than I expected. Considering that the epoxy could cost 5-10 dollars, the replacement fobs were a great deal. Fobs for other makes and models might be a lot more expensive though.
