Helo and welcome to just answer.I value your input to my questions so I may help you better. I would try OME fobs for the simple reason it would be cheaper to do so and from experience most electrical aftermarket components are chancy to try not just key fobs but sensors too. It's the old scenario you get what you pay for. This is just my experienced advice. I won't ask for an ratting for giving you some friendly advice. Good luck.
