Transponder Key Creating
It was in 1993 that European cars were introduced with transponder keys. Most new cars on the road today use electronic transponder keys. A key like this adds significantly to the security of ignition locks in cars, making them less likely to be stolen. It is nearly impossible to hot-wire or break a transponder key when it is properly programmed. It is, therefore, crucial that an expert program or reprogram your car key.
Transponder key: What exactly is it?
An electronic key, or transponder key, is usually a manufactured accessory and is used to transmit information between a car and the key. When you program a transponder key, you allow your key to start one specific individual car, cutting down on the opportunities for theft.
A transponder key can be programmed by inserting a small transmitter in the head of the key, which makes an electronic request to the car’s engine and immobilizer box and gives it permission to start. Cars that don’t recognize their serial numbers cannot start and are, therefore, impossible to drive.

For transponder key services, you should contact a company like Kalix Locksmith.
