What is a Transponder Key for a Car
Car transponders or transponder keys are a feature of many new cars that add an extra step of security to your vehicle. Transponder keys have unique serial numbers and special programming that enable the key to operate and start your vehicle, and your vehicle alone. While the extra security is an added bonus, these keys if lost can create a bigger issue because not just any key can be cut in order to start and unlock the vehicle. Wise Locksmith is equipped with the proper tools and knowledge to re-key transponder keys and program them to your vehicle to ensure you’re never stranded.
Security Features of Car Transponder
Transponder keys work by using a small microchip that communicates through low-wave radio signals with the ignition in your vehicle. Before starting the car will actually read the microchip located in the key and make sure everything matches up before starting, which means that only a key programmed with your vehicle’s specific information will be able to unlock and start your car.
