Here’s how we do it! Transponders are designed to be theft-proof, and all cars since 1995 have them. The technology requires us to have sophisticated equipment in order to perform key programming.
There is a transponder chip in your key. When you place your key in the ignition and turn it to start, the transponder sends a signal to the Engine Control Unit in your car. If the serial number on the transponder’s microchip matches the immobiliser in your ECU, your car starts and you’re on your way.
Our specialist car locksmiths reprogram both ends of the system, providing new keys as well as immobiliser codes. If your original key has been damaged, we’ll simply transfer the chip to a replacement key and you’re on your way!
We send our car specialist locksmiths all over Essex and surrounding areas.
