How Replacing Lost Car Keys Works
Transponder key has a transponder chip in it, without which the motor won’t start. This means that if the chip isn’t programmed to receive and respond to the car computer signal, the engine won’t start. This is a very great feature for security purposes. So, if the key you lost is a transponder key, we’ll need to first cut the blade to match your lock and ignition. And after that the locksmith will program your transponder key in accordance with the specifications and frequency of your vehicle.
Replacing Lost Car Keys with Fob
Remote and flip type keys are very much alike. Remote key is a plastic fob, which is an addition to your non remote standard key. With this key you can lock and unlock your vehicle, open the trunk, control the windows and even start the engine. Some of these functions may vary depending on the model of the vehicle. So, just like a transponder key, when you are replacing your lost remote key, we’ll need to program it. In other words, our specialist will have to make sure that according to the car specs the key and the car share the same radio waves.
Generally, flip key performs the same remote functions as a remote key. There’s one cool addition though. Flip key has a plastic fob as well, on which all the control buttons are situated. This fob is bigger than remote key and made to contain the standard car key inside of it. This is very convenient and less space consuming. So, replacement of the flip type key will also involve the programming process that is just like programming of the remote key.
