GM Flip Key: Car Keys Express

Car Keys Express Announces Release of Universal Aftermarket GM Flip Key

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.

The product development division of Car Keys Express announces the release of the its first universal aftermarket flip key for General Motors vehicles. The key, with integrated remote, has the same functionality as standard OEM versions and will be available for purchase in July.

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.

This key is the first device to be released in the company’s new product line, Simple Key. Each key in the unique 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, 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.”

Key Features:

  • Easy, no-tools setup
  • Universal design
  • Five button configurations
  • FCC-certified
  • Works on over 6 million vehicles from 2010 to 2017
  • Compatible with all standard industry diagnostic tools and equipment
  • Can be reprogrammed multiple times
  • “Better than OEM” three-year warranty

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. This key is the latest in a long line of remotes and smart keys released by the company. It follows the previously released universal aftermarket Ford, Lincoln and Mercury remote key; Chrysler FOBIK; Chrysler, Dodge and Jeep remote key; and Nissan Smart Key. Together with Universal Car Remotes and Universal Car Keys developed and manufactured by the company, 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.

Lanwehr added, “Our mission is to make replacing car keys simple and affordable again. 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.”

Why Do Vehicles Go Out of Alignment?

If camber, caster or toe are out of specifications, there is usually a reason why.

You’ve seen it a hundred times. A vehicle comes in with abnormal wear on a front tire. It looks like camber wear. One shoulder is badly worn, but the other front tire appears to be OK. You put it on your alignment machine and check camber and toe. Sure enough, camber on the wheel with the worn tire is out of specifications. You visually inspect the suspension for obvious signs of wear or damage like collapsed control arm bushings, a bad ball joint, or a weak or broken spring, but you find nothing. You assume the front end is out of adjustment, so you reset camber to specifications and send the customer on his or her way.
