    What is a Transponder Key?

    You may not have heard the name, but odds are good that you’ve come across transponder keys; maybe your own car uses one. Transponder devices use a microchip to transmit a signal from the key to a receiver. These microchips are programmed with a unique serial number by the manufacturer. They operate on a similar principle to a key fob such as you’d use on an office or apartment building, and are also found on gates, garage doors, and home security systems.

    In the case of your vehicle, transponder keys are created by inserting a microchip about the size of a grain of rice into the head of the key.  When the key is turned in the ignition, a signal is sent to the transponder. The transponder converts that signal into electricity and generates a signal that contains its unique digital signature. If the digital signature is recognized, the vehicle will start. For the past twenty years, transponder keys have been an increasingly common anti-theft feature on new cars by making them impossible to hotwire.

    Transponder keys are more expensive to produce than traditional keys for two reasons. First, the key itself uses more, and more expensive, components. Second, because manufacturer software is being updated constantly, we need to maintain state-of-the-art equipment and software so that we can service all the latest makes and models.

    If you need a new transponder key, don’t make your first call to the dealership! Call Star Spangled Locksmithing. We can help you with your needs – we use the exact same equipment that the dealers use, and we beat their prices every time.
