Transponder Key Replacement and Reprogramming ServicesMarch 29, 2018

Years ago, cars were much simpler than they are today. Just place a key into the ignition, then turn it, and the vehicle’s engine would start. Nowadays, nearly everyone owns a car. Unfortunately, stealing cars for profit has increased over time, and that has spurred the need for innovative ways to prevent them from being stolen.

The most effective means against car theft now are manufacturer supplied transponder keys. While transponder keys are designed effectively to thwart car thefts, as an electronic fail-safe means to prevent cars from starting if its microchip isn’t detected, they do at times need to be reprogrammed if damaged, or replaced if lost or stolen.
