What Is Cloning And How Does It Work?

What Is Cloning And How Does It Work?

What Is Car Cloning?

When people talk about car cloning, they could mean one of two things. One is a type of crime. One is not.  Car cloning is a type of vehicle identity theft. Some ne’er-do-wells have begun copying the vehicle identification number, or VIN, from legally registered automobiles.

They can then apply that VIN to a stolen car and sell it, with the purchaser of the vehicle being none the wiser. That’s why, if you’re buying a previously owned vehicle, make sure the seller is reputable. You may buy a used car in good faith, but if that car was stolen, police services will still repossess it from you and give it back to its rightful owner.

At Anderson Automotive, we offer car cloning services in the Summerside region of Prince Edward Island. But we don’t mean the criminal kind! We won’t steal your VIN. But we can clone your car’s key fob if you’d like.

What Is Car Key Fob Cloning?

The type of car cloning we offer is legal and can be very handy. As the relentless force of technology marches on, many vehicles come with key fobs instead of, or in addition to, the traditional, inanimate metal key. This can be more convenient if you want to open your vehicle’s door or trunk while carrying something, so you don’t have to physically unlock the door. It also allows you to open the door at a distance.

If you want to copy your car’s key fob, this can be tricky. Cloning a car’s key fob is not like cutting a duplicate key. It takes special equipment and technology to pull off. We, at Anderson Automotive, have the technology, tools, and know how to duplicate your car’s key fob. This way, both you and your spouse or other family member can access your vehicle without any of the hassle of trying to schedule who has the key fob and when.

Car Key Fob Replacement

At Anderson Automotive, we can also replace your key fob if you lose it. We offer professional and expert key fob cloning and replacement. It’s important to trust these jobs to the professionals, because if your replacement key fob is poorly programmed, you could have some significant issues.

A poorly programmed key fob makes your vehicle vulnerable to security threats. You may also end up with an unusable vehicle, a broken module, or requiring repairs that are much more expensive than a key fob replacement.
