But what about the transponder?
Transponder keys were designed to be theft-proof, and all cars since 1995 have them. The technology requires us to have sophisticated equipment in order to perform car key programming.
There is a transponder chip in your car key. When you place your key in the ignition and turn it to start, the transponder sends a signal to the Engine Control Unit in your car. If the serial number on the transponder’s microchip matches the immobiliser in your ECU, your car starts and you’re on your way.
