Automotive Transponder Keys

Loosing your car keys can often be scary. Depending on the make and model of the vehicle, replacing lost car keys at a dealership can cost you several hundreds of dollars. Modern vehicles usually need a transponder chip in the head of the key programmed and also programmed to the vehicle’s immobilizer system before the newly cut key will start the car. This requires a lot of specialised equipment to produce working keys. In most cases Assured Locksmiths and Security Solutions can replace your lost keys for less than your dealership but this of course is depending on the make and model of your car.

We offer two different types of aftermarket Transponder keys for your car:

  • a flip transponder key with remotes and
  • a non flip transponder key without remotes . This key will require you to unlock and lock your car by using the key in the door lock.

We can also cut and program genuine keys to a wide range of vehicles including some proximity keys to suit push start models.

FAQ

What is a Transponder and how does it work?

A transponder is a part of the key which disarms the immobiliser when it is used to start the engine of a vehicle. They have mostly become an industry standard in all modern cars manufactured after 1997.

When you place your key into the ignition barrel and turn it to start your vehicle, the barrel emits a magnetic field which in-turn sends a small amount of power to the microchip/RFID chip located in the head of the key.

With this small charge, the transponder chip is able to communicate with the Engine Control Unit/Immobiliser Unit contained within the vehicle itself. If the codes from the transponder chip matches that of the immobiliser unit, the vehicle will start. However, if the codes do not match, or the vehicle is attempted to be started with a standard key, the engine will not start.

What is the difference between genuine and aftermarket car keys?

The main difference between genuine car keys and the aftermarket alternative is price. Genuine keys are more expensive, however our aftermarket variations are much more durable and even utilise identical RFID transponder chip as the genuine model. We can replace your lost/misplaced car key with are quality aftermarket option, and at a fraction of the price.

What is your VIN and how can you find it?

Your vehicle identification number (VIN) consists of 17 alphanumeric characters and can be found in various places within your vehicle as well as official documentation relating to your vehicle such as registration papers or your service and warranty book.
