What Is a Transponder Key?

The transponder car key is named after the same device embedded in the key itself, i.e. a transponder. This technology is used as a security measure to increase the protection of your vehicle and make cars safer and generally more difficult to break into.

The transponder authorizes you as the rightful owner of the vehicle by communicating with the computer receiver in the car which is programmed to only respond to the correct signal, unique to every vehicle. 

However, just like any piece of technology, programming a car key transponder, requires both specialized equipment and knowhow, which is what LockSmithsPros is here to do. 

How Long Does It Take To Program a Key For Your Car?

Many car-owners fear that if they have to reprogram their car keys, that will take them ages. As it turns out, however, most auto locksmiths will not take you more than several minutes to program a new transponder car key but we will also need to cut the key blade of the transponder key so all-in-all you are looking at about half an hours work.  

Now, this service can only be carried out by certified and experienced car locksmiths such as the ones we work with at LockSmithsPro. The upside of our nationwide network of licensed and mobile car locksmiths is not only that a team will be dispatched to your location as soon as you place a call to our call center, but similarly, you can expect quick delivery and expert service.

Why May Programming a Transponder/Car Keys Take Longer?

Do not worry, though, because our team leaves nothing to chance and our mini-vans are fully equipped with all the required devices, equipment and tools we need to deliver quick service.

Furthermore, we will need to cut for you a new car key replacement and for that, you will need you VIN or vehicle identification number

If you have an exiting key we are looking at a cloning or duplication job but if the keys are lost and there are no old keys to copy we need to produce a new key from scratch.  The new key from scratch will require us to purchase your unique key code using your vehicle identification number (VIN) and if that is not available our locksmiths have the specialized tools and blank keys to backward engineer a new key for you.
