Auto Transponder Keys
Most modern cars feature transponder keys as part of their anti-theft security measures. They use microchips, programmed with a unique serial number, to transmit a low-level signal from a key that is read by a remote receiver. Using (radio frequency identification (RFID), the receiver, located near the ignition, detects the correct serial number that unlocks the car. This technology is more secure because if the car doesn’t detect the exact serial number, it won’t start. If a car thief attempts ‘hot wiring’ and breaks the ignition lock, it will not work.
If your car uses a transponder key, it’s a good idea to have at least two copies. While they can help deter thieves and intruders, transponder keys can still get lost or stolen. By having a second valid, programmed transponder key, you can avoid the stress and quickly get back to your day. Just remember to keep your extra key close by, so you’ll always have a way to access your vehicle even without your primary key.
OUR LOCKSMITHS ARE AVAILABLE 24/7.

What To Do When You’ve Lost Your Auto Transponder Key?
Losing a key is a stressful situation you don’t want to be in, especially when you’re on the road and far from home. While cars with transponder keys are usually safe from being stolen, it does make the replacement of missing keys a bit of a challenge. This is why it’s important to have another key readily available for emergencies. However, if you don’t have one and you’ve locked yourself out of your car, don’t panic. Try to take a deep breath and clear your head so you can come up with the best solution. Every so often, people react drastically without trying the simplest solution to a car lockout problem.
Before you start breaking your car windows or jimmying its doors, take a moment to calm yourself. Then, try to retrace your steps and check your bag or pockets. Once you’ve checked the places where your key might have ended up, reach out to an expert that can help program a new transponder key for you.
