Some of the following questions are asked by our customers so we are here to answer them:
What is a Transponder Key?
A Transponder Key is a tiny chip in a car key which is part of the anti-theft security measures. It transmits a low-level signal from a key that is read by a remote receiver. It gives a signal to your car when inserted into the ignition. The vehicle will not start if it’s the wrong key.
Do you need to program your transponder key?
If you want your key to work in a vehicle that requires a transponder key, then yes programming is necessary. Standard metal keys do not require programming. 24/7 Supertech Locksmiths can scan your key to verify if there’s a transponder chip inside.
Would you need to purchase a new key?
Many people do not know locksmiths can assist with remote keys. Once a spare key is needed, it should be brand new and come with a warranty. We can supply and program an original key to the best quality for your vehicle.
If your key is stolen, is it reprogrammed when the new key is made?
Yes, this is available. However, if the key is programmed, it is not possible to reprogram the key itself. Your locksmith will need to adjust the computer inside the vehicle. The system will be erased, so the old key will no longer be operable. Only then will the new key be programmed to your vehicle.
