Transponder Keys: What is a Transponder and How Do They Work?

The keying device we call a transponder operates by transmitting and receiving data using radio frequency. Transponders are relatively new to the automotive industry. They were first introduced around 1995, and are not standard on most vehicles. They are widely used in toll booths, animal tracking, and access control security systems. Consider it a key with an electronic identification tag built in.
Transponder keys work with technology. Manufacturers embed a transponder chip into the head of each key. Each chip contains a trillion possible electronic codes. When a driver inserts an ignition key, for instance, the transponder sends a signal to a disc-shaped antenna surrounding the cylinder housing behind the shroud on the steering column. This antenna relays the signal to the control module. Once the module recognizes the signal, the vehicle is allowed to start.
To discuss your best options and pricing for transponder keys, give us a call with your vehicle year, make, and model. Bring your vehicle to your shop to program extra transponder keys. If you lose all your keys, we can come to you to provide this service.
