LOUISVILLE, KY, March 6, 2020—The product development division of Car Keys Express introduces consumer-programmable Simple™ Keys for Chrysler, Dodge, and Jeep FOBIKs, remote keys, and smart keys. The new keys, with integrated remotes, have the same functionality as standard OEM versions and will be available for purchase beginning in late March. Each key in the unique Simple™ Key product line allows retailers to offer consumers a simple, “do-it-yourself” solution for replacing modern car keys. These consumer-friendly, self-contained products include a universal key and an EZ Installer™, allowing customers to pair the key to their vehicle. 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. 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,“ said Mark Lanwehr, Founder and CEO of Car Keys Express.

The universal keys control the remote keyless entry systems for a variety of Chrysler, Dodge, and Jeep models. At the touch of a button, the keys perform the same functions as the vehicle's original equipment, such as locking and unlocking doors, panic, opening the truck, and remote start.
