Chip Key - Who Needs Batteries?

When you insert your chip key into the lock or ignition, your engine control unit sends a signal to the chip key that powers it and enables it to send a programmed code to the ECU. This means your engine will only start for your chip key, so there’s no fear that someone can hot-wire your pride and joy, and owning a transponder key also means you can forget about replacement batteries. Cool, right?

We know you love your car; it takes you places and gives you wings. Let’s help you give your car better security; give us a call and let’s get you a transponder key and frustrate every would-be car thief.

FAQ

Your transponder key is a pretty tough cookie; it contains a little transponder chip that is activated by a low power radio frequency signal from your engine control unit, so even if it comes together with a battery-powered remote control door lock, it will still work when the battery is gone. Really, it would take actual physical or chemical damage to the chip for your key to stop working.

Transponder key programming is necessary if you have changed your ignition, or you’ve just gotten a new key. The code on the chip in your transponder key has to match the code on the chip in your Engine Control Unit (ECU) before your engine can start. This feature is what gives your car that extra layer of security; if the engine won’t start, then anybody who wants to steal your car better get a crane with which to lift it.

No, you don’t need to change your ignition. Your transponder key talks directly to your Engine Control Unit, so all you need to do after you get a transponder key replacement is give us a call and our experts will promptly be there to program your key with the right code for a small fee, of course.

After ignition key replacement and reprogramming, your car is as safe as it was when you had your former keys. Because the reprogramming changes the code that your ECU uses to authenticate your transponder key, even your old key would be useless in the hands of a thief.

A chip key, or a transponder key, adds an extra layer of security to your car. Because of the technology involved in its making, your chip key is more expensive than a normal ignition key, but reducing the risk of your car getting stolen to the point where the prospective thief would need a crane to carry your car off is a pretty good trade-off. Wouldn’t you agree?

Because it’s cooler? Haha! Seriously though, you have a number of good reasons to choose a transponder key over the other sort. The first is security; a transponder key ensures that your car engine will not start unless your car key is inside the car, so anybody who wants to steal your car would need to pinch the keys. The second is durability; a transponder key does not suffer from worn edges like a normal metal key, so you can use it for a much longer period as long as you don’t break it or drop it in a vat of acid.
