Car Keys Express Releases Universal Aftermarket Flip Key for GM Vehicles

The FCC-certified key works on more than 6 million GM vehicles from model years 2010 through 2017, and can be reprogrammed multiple times, according to Car Keys Express.

Car Keys Express said it has released the world’s first universal flip key for General Motors vehicles.

Featuring integrated remote, the key has the same functionality as standard OEM versions, according to the company.

The key will be available for purchase in July.

“Retailers, key professionals and consumers no longer have to rely on counterfeit keys imported from overseas or pay top dollar for OEM keys from dealerships,” the company said in a news release.

The FCC-certified key works on more than 6 million GM vehicles from model years 2010 through 2017, and can be reprogrammed multiple times, according to Car Keys Express.

The universal key controls the remote keyless-entry systems for a variety of Buick, Chevrolet and GMC models. At the touch of a button, the key performs the same functions as the vehicle’s original equipment, such as locking and unlocking doors, panic, opening the truck and remote start, according to the company.

This key is the first device to be released in the company’s new product line, Simple Key. Each key in the product line allows retailers to offer consumers a DIY solution for replacing modern car keys.

The self-contained products include a universal key and, if required, an EZ Installer, allowing customers to pair the key to their vehicle. Once cut, consumers follow simple instructions to pair the key in just a few minutes.

“Car Keys Express is the first and only company to offer a diverse line of aftermarket, universal keys,” said Mark Lanwehr, founder and CEO of Car Keys Express. “Our innovations bring real automotive key replacement back to retail. Simple Keys allow retailers to offer their customers an alternative to the time, expense and hassle of a dealership appointment.”

Car Keys Express offers aftermarket keys and remotes providing coverage for most of the 250 million North American cars on the road today “for a fraction of the cost,” according to the company.

“Our mission is to make replacing car keys simple and affordable again,” Lanwehr added. “Today our universal products combine the capabilities of over 600 OEM devices into two dozen keys. As we release more and more keys, prices for key replacement will actually decrease over the years.”

The Universal Aftermarket General Motors Flip Key is one of three Simple Keys scheduled for release before the end of 2018.
