The security mechanism behind transponder keys are meant to disable fuel injection and/or the starters of your vehicle if the key that is used is unprogrammed into the chip or misprogrammed. Depending on the model of the car, the distance of the transponder chip from the transceiver varies. Some cars have these two parts as the exact distance from the key ring to the bow of the key.
If, in an unfortunate incident, you lose your transponder key, then you will have to get a new one that hasn’t been programmed before. When you are looking to get a car key replacement for your transponder key, it has to include a key that has been cut in the appropriate manner, and a new chip that is programmed correctly. All of this sounds taxing if you attempt to do it yourself; Fortunately, our team of experienced auto locksmiths at Sherlock Locksmith can take care of that for you!
