How does a transponder key work?

Nearly all modern cars have transponder keys, but few drivers understand how they work. The word “transponder” stands for transmitter and responder. The plastic part of the key contains a tiny microchip with a unique serial number, which sends a low-level signal to a receiver near your car’s ignition switch. If the correct transmission is not detected, the car will not start. This prevents hotwiring, as well as the use of unauthorized duplicate keys.

At Texas Premier Locksmith, we are able to create new or duplicate transponder keys and program your vehicle to work with them. They are more expensive than traditional flat keys due to the programming, but they offer invaluable protection against car theft.
