If your keyless entry fob stops working, finding a replacement can be harrowing, which is why automotive locksmith Keyless Ride developed the K2 universal remote. Rather than stocking hundreds of individual OEM units, dealerships just have to dock a K2, tell it what make, model and year your car is (it's compatible with 70 percent of the North American market) and it'll pair up with your ride's on-board wireless hardware within five minutes. Better still, you can lighten the load in your pocket by adding a second car to the same remote (if you have a weekend whip, that is). The company will be demonstrating at next year's CES, throwing James Bond-style gun poses as they open two cars at once -- we hope.

Universal Automotive Keyless Entry Remote from KeylessRide Hits the Market – A Retailer's Dream Come True

KeylessRide's K2 Keyless Entry Remote Controls up to Two Vehicles with a Single Remote

2012 International CES AUSTIN, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--KeylessRide is pleased to announce the availability of the industry's first universal automotive keyless entry remote. Branded as K2, the universal remote offers the same functionality as the factory original and works on vehicles up to and including the current model year.

Retailers appreciate the K2 universal remote because it provides access to the lucrative automotive remote replacement market without the large stocking requirement. In fact, the K2 Forge retail system allows retailers to stock a single remote instead of hundreds to achieve up to 70 percent coverage of North American vehicles. Best of all, each K2 remote is capable of operating up to two vehicles, significantly reducing cost while lightening up the customer's keychain.

The only customer information a retailer needs to configure a K2 remote on demand is the year, make and model of the vehicle. Once configured, the K2 remote is then paired with the customer's vehicle through a simple 5-minute activation procedure. Since the K2 remote controls the original equipment already present in a vehicle, the activation procedure does not require the installation of any aftermarket add-on modules, another huge plus for retailers.

The K2 Forge retail remote system will be demonstrated at Booth #2306 of the 2012 International CES, which runs Jan. 10-13, 2012 in Las Vegas, NV.
