I have a 2018 Q50s.
It only came with one key fob and I would like to get another.
What is the best way to do this without the dealer prices?
Also, once I get it, can I program it my self or will I need a dealer or some specialist?
Preferably something that comes with a key I can match as well.
My newly purchased 2017 Q60 3.0t Premium came with only one key fob as well. Bought two new ones from KeylessRemotes through Amazon. $70.
Called my local auto locksmith to inquire about programming them both. The guy quoted $125 for both, plus $45 to cut each spare key. Total $220.
I took the car into my local Infiniti dealer for a complimentary inspection (gave it a free car wash too, which I thought was pretty cool). I asked the service advisor about the programming and he said he'd do both for $85 plus $40 to cut each key. $165. I figured heck, let the dealer do it and I would pass on the spare keys... For now.
He came back 20 minutes later and said they fobs I bought were "the wrong frequency". That didn't sound right to me because I was pretty careful about checking the FCC number, ICC, part #, etc. They matched.
Called "tech support" for the keys sold to me. The rep asked for my zip code and gave me the number of another local, independent, mobile locksmith.
The guy quoted me $75... For everything. Came out, plugged his tool into the ODB2 port...i swear he was finished in under ten minutes, keys cut and ALL!
All functions and keys work fine.
Prices vary widely. I got the two key fobs for $70... Both programmed and keys cut for $75.
