What are the benefits of Transponder keys?

The main benefit of this type of key is that unauthorized duplication of the metal part of a car key won’t be enough in order to ignite the car and steal it. Some car manufacturers even have a different signal transmitted by the ignition every time a key is inserted, in order to make the car even less vulnerable to theft. So even though nowadays it’s basically enough for a scammer to have a photo of a car key in order to replicate the code that is carved in its metal part, it won’t be enough for them in order to be able to steal your vehicle.

Only professional locksmiths who have the necessary programming equipment and computer software are able to replicate a Transponder key or make a brand new one from scratch.


UK Auto Locksmith has you covered!

UK Auto Locksmith team has all the necessary tools and skills in order to program your transponder key quickly without any hassle. Most locksmith businesses do not have the required car key programming equipment and can only supply you with a basic car key that will simply open your vehicle. In this case, without the transponder chip, the key won’t be able to start your vehicle.

At UK Auto Locksmith, our specialists have practical experience in transponder key programming administrations. We can give you a key that won’t just get you inside your car yet additionally enable you to start it and go back on the road. Our transponder keys are genuine trades for your car’s original set.

NO matter what type of key you need, our professional car locksmith team in London is here to help you.

What is the difference between a transponder key & a remote key?

The word “transponder” is a combination of “transmit” and “respond”, which is the process that happens when you insert this type of key into the ignition. Unlike regular old-style metal keys, Transponder keys have a black plastic cover that hides an electronic chip, which communicates with the car’s ignition once the key gets inserted into the ignition switch.

When it happens, the ignition sends a radio signal at a certain frequency, which should be recognized by the Transponder chip. Only an original key or a key that was made by a qualified locksmith will be able to recognize the right radio frequency and respond the right way to the ignition’s authorization request. Unless the whole process goes smoothly, the ignition won’t start and it will be impossible to start driving the vehicle.
