Transponder Key Programming
Transponder key programming is offered by Auto Price Locksmiths as part of their replacement car key service. When replacing a lost car key or a broken car key you must replace and programme a new replacement transponder chip in the key.
What is a Transponder?
Since 1995 car manufacturers have introduced a transponder chip embedded into the plastic head of the vehicle key. The transponder chip is a passive device which does not require power or the need to press a button. The immobiliser reads the code from the transponder when the key turns in the ignition. If the right code is read the car will start, however if the transponder key is lost or damaged the engine wont start.
