Cars and Light Trucks manufactured from 1996 onward have extra security features built in to the key to prevent theft. These features include a “transponder chip” embedded inside the head of the key.
This technology prevents the engine from starting by turning the ignition by force or picking the ignition lock and makes “hot wiring” the vehicle impossible.
When a key is inserted into the ignition and the ignition is switched on, a transponder embedded in the head of the key is energized by an exciter coil that surrounds the ignition lock cylinder. Lost car key replacement atlanta
The energized transponder transmits a signal that contains its unique alphanumeric code. If the code received doesn’t match what is stored in the vehicles anti-theft system, engine starting is disabled.
You may need a replacement car key made when the teeth on the key no longer match the lock enough to turn it due to the wear. The key only works after trying to open the car door a couple of times or the transponder chip stops working. It's a good sign that your car key needs replacement soon since the car might not start when you need it.
It's important to recognize when your car keys need to be replaced so you know when you need to call a car locksmith. Before you're stuck with a car that won't start.
If car keys can be cut by VIN using an online service, why not order the keys online and avoid paying a locksmith to come out or towing the car to the dealer ? Newer cars have transponder keys (often called chipped keys). This means that the car key must be programmed to the car in order for the car to recognize the key, unlock the vehicles immobilizer system, and start the car. That online key won’t start the car until it is programmed to the car by a local locksmith.
Replacing a car key can be expensive and time-consuming. Car key replacement costs varies depending on the make, model year, and type of key, fob or remote required.
Transponder keys are the cheapest to replace at an average cost $150 - $250 for two new keys.
Keyless entry remotes can add an extra $50 - $100 per fob.
Smart key fob replacement cost range between $350 - $800 for 2 new keys.
