Common Transponder Key Issues We Are Hired To Handle

Some of the most common transponder key problems we are asked to help are strongly connected to serious issues like missing, lost, or stolen transponder keys with no spare set. This means you have no key to duplicate and the new transponder key must be correctly cut using advanced machines and programmed with updated software. A transponder key that is not programmed accurately will prevent the car's transceiver from receiving the correct message or “digital key”. The car will, accordingly, fail to switch off the immobilizer and get the engine to start. This is true whenever there is a missing or damaged RFID element.

Normally, transponder key programming is done at the same time as the new laser car key is cut. Nonetheless, this is not a general rule of thumb and it depends on one locksmith to another and from one car model to the next. We have the expertise needed to figure out what is the best course of action for each vehicle that reaches us. We can usually cut a new transponder key using laser car key cutting machines, generating a new transponder chip key that will require programming. At the same time, we will assist you with the removal of any leftover transponder key RFID codes from the car's computer. This is needed in order to ensure that none of the previous keys to your car can continue to be used to start the engine, except for the fresh set that we will personally cut and program for you. This is particularly necessary, if not mandatory when you suspect your keys have been stolen from you.

Transponder Key Programming Services

Drivers may not always be aware of the presence of these transponder chips since they are not visible to the naked eye, nor do they require them to press any buttons. Inserting and turning a transponder key in the ignition means sending a radio signal to the vehicle's transponder. If the transponder fails to issue the valid code answer, the car's computer will fail to start the engine. A transponder key has no battery inside as it relies on energy coming from the radio signal it uses in order to function. The process is called inductive coupling and it refers to the capacitor inside the radio receiver generating the necessary voltage inside the transponder of the respective key.

Needless to say, a transponder key can add lots of extra protection to a vehicle, since it actually checks the legitimacy of the key in use. This can significantly lower the risk of someone hot-wiring your vehicle in an attempt to steal it or use other unauthorized procedures, such as slide hammering.

One of the greatest challenges we are confronted with when asked to replace a missing transponder key in the middle of the night refers to cutting the perfect laser car key. Without a spare key to use for duplication, the process must be completed from scratch. Depending on the type and model of a key our car relies on, we may need to put on some elbow grease, extra skills, and tools for it. Other times, it may only take as little as a few minutes. We will quickly assess the locks and ignition on your vehicle and give you a realistic and transparent approximation of the duration of the key cutting.

Our technicians also rely on their long experience in the field, as well as industry know-how to cut perfect car keys and make sure they can be programmed and used straight away, with no delays.

Most of today's cars come with an OBD connection usually found beneath the wheels. This is the place where our locksmiths will connect their special machines such as the Pro Pad and collect important data on the vehicle, including the car make, year, and model. This information is needed for accurately programming the new transponder key hassle-free. Some brands such as Porsche cars will require us to connect to ProPad to the engine computer, which means we will need to open the cover of the engine and proceed with the programming from there.

We also advanced handle transponder key programming services with the help of tools such as the Smart Pro car key programmer with a top user interface and good software that uses the Info Quest technology.

Dave is great! He was punctual and professional. And after installing the new locks on all of our doors, he cleaned up after himself! The same cannot be said for the last service I hired… would definitely recommend and use again!

We live not too far from Chicago and I spend about a hour and a half to get to my office. Mornings are always in a hurry for me and a broken door would be the worst I could expect. However, this was exactly what happened. I had no time to lose and so I called 247 Ontime Locksmiths. The expert guy from Locksmiths could fix the problem and I could go to work.
