Electronic Keys, Professional and Local Locksmith
Need Electronic Keys?
There are several types of electronic keys. They share similar functions, but it is important to know that not all electronic car keys serve the same purpose. You need to be on the look out for just what type of key you are looking to buy.
A transponder key is a physical key that has a chip inside of it. The chip is often underneath the plastic cover on the bow of the key. If the bow of your key has a remote installed on it, the transponder chip may also be in this plastic. These keys still need to get into the ignition cylinder of a car. They are not the same as keyless entry devices. Once you buy any electronic car keys that have these chips, you will have to undergo some form of transponder key programming.

If you are getting a new transponder key, be sure that the blade is blank. There should not be any grooves on the key you have purchased. This is because this device requires car key cutting as well as programming. Most locksmith stores that sell locks will be able to make the shape the grooves on a key cutter, but programming may be a little tricky without a spare on hand. If you do not have a working transponder key for your car, it will need programming using your car’s onboard computer. Be sure you consider all the replacement needs before looking into electronic car keys.
