Brisbane’s Most Reliable Transponder Key Programming
We first saw the introduction of car key transponders in 1993 in European cars. These days electronic transponder keys are now commonly used in all new cars on the road. These keys add significantly to the protection of ignition locks of cars, preventing theft. A properly programmed transponder key means that hot-wiring or breaking the ignition lock of your car is near-impossible. That’s why it’s essential to have your car key programmed or reprogrammed by an expert.
What exactly is a transponder key?
In general terms a transponder key is a manufactured accessory that comes with a car and provides the transmission link between the car and the key. Programming a transponder key means that your key is designed to start one specific, individual car thereby reducing opportunities for theft.
Programming a car’s transponder key works through a little transmitter that is in the head of the car key and when inserted into the ignition, the key transmits an electronic request to the engine and the immobiliser box, which then allows the car to start.
If the car does not recognise the serial number as the one it was programmed with, it won’t start, and obviously you won’t be able to drive it.
