A transponder car key is an auto key that has transponder chip installed inside of it. The extra security that the chip provides offers ultimate protection to your vehicle. Without the correct signal sent by the chip to the transceiver in your car, the car simply will not start. In other works, a car that uses transponder key will not work if you do not have the key on you. While it is still possible to access and open the doors and the trunk of the vehicle, to start the car, you still need the properly programmed transponder key.
Do I have to program my transponder key?
If your car has transponder key, in order for it to work and start the ignition, the transponder key must be programmed. Transponder key programming is not something you need to do for older types of vehicles, which use regular metal key without any high level security chip installed.
How long does it take for locksmith to program the transponder key?
Transponder key programming doesn’t take long, and you will reunite with a newly programmed key within couple of minutes. If you lost your transponder key, the experienced locksmith can still make a new key for you using only the car itself. The locksmiths have the right tool to cut a new key for code, using Vehicle Identification Number VIN.
