Replacement FOB

Anyone have a good source for replacement OEM fobs?

The dealer or eBay maybe?

I've seen fobs of various sorts at Batteries Plus but I've not looked to closely to see if they have ones that would match and E series. They typically have good service and warranties. I'm also not sure if they are OEM fobs, likely not although they looked very similar.

I bought these for my 2011:

I'm not certain they would work for your 2005, but I think so? Since I had a working fob, I was able to reprogram them myself.

How is the range on those? Ive seen some back and forth on the reviews.

I haven't had any problems, although I think I may have replaced the no-name batteries at some point (we've had them for 4 years). Range is easily further than my other vehicles--I can activate it from inside my closed front door ~50 away and watch the lights flash, either directly (van parked on the street) or reflected off my neighbor's garage door (parked in my driveway with no line of sight from my front door).

Sweet. Thanks for the info. I swear I bought some OEM fobs off ebay quite a few years ago, but when I look now, they're all aftermarket. Hopefully these hold up.

Hopefully they work out as well for you as they have for us. Thankfully they're not too expensive!

Slightly related: any suggestions on where to get a replacement key, or does one need to go to a dealership regardless for programming? We only received one key when we bought our van, and I keep forgetting to pick up a spare. One of these days that's going to bite us...

I just bought some on ebay. My 2005 doesn't use a transponder key. Not sure about the newer vans.

This is what I bought...

Gotcha. Mine definitely has the transponder, so I guess I need to do some more research on whether programming it is a dealer-only thing.
