Transponder Programming Ipswich
Most cars that have been manufactured in the last 20 or so years have a transponder of some sort embedded in the vehicle and in the key. These transponders contain programmes that are unique to each vehicle. Older models have transponders embedded in the car’s keys and which must be inserted into the vehicles ignition before it will start so that they make contact with the responder in the car’s ignition. Recent years have seen the advent of keyless cars with transponders embedded in plastic cards or discs, and which have replaced the battery-operated remote controls, whether in separate units or embedded in the key handle.
Individually programmed transponders, embedded in the key’s shank, were originally introduced as a mechanism for preventing a car from being hotwired and stolen, but it does mean that if the car key is lost – whether it’s a conventional key and transponder, or just a transponder – you might think that you are in a bit of a quandary. No need to phone your manufacturer’s agent – that will just cost you a lot more, Auto Locksmith Ipswich will come to your rescue.
Auto Locksmiths have had years of experience attending to and programming transponders in motor vehicles.
