How Do We Cut A Transponder Car Keys

Similar to cutting a normal car key, we have several ways of cutting transponder car keys. The first method we use is by disassembling the door lock from the door, and reading a code in the cylinder which tells us how to cut the transponder key. The second method we use is by connecting to the dealer’s database to extract a code using the car’s VIN number. The third way would be to pick the ignition and read the code off of it.

There’s not much difference between cutting a car key and cutting a transponder key, the difference is in the key head. Inside the key head, or remote head, there is a radio frequency chip that receives a pulse of electricity when you put it in the ignition. The pulse is then sent back to the car’s computer (ECU) through the immobilizer, if the ECU recognizes the chip inside the key, it then unlocks the immobilizer. That’s why it’s called a transponder key. In order to get a vehicle recognize a transponder key, we need to program the transponder car key chip.

Programming transponder car keys is done by either plugging a computer into the vehicle to register a new chip, or by an on-board ignition switch series of action such as turning in on-off several times in a specific order. Think of it like a combo move from Mortal Kombat or Tekken, but with your car key.

Our locksmiths are flexible and work quickly around your schedule, so you won’t miss any part of your day. If you need new transponder car keys cut at home, office, or at a shopping plaza, give us a call, we’ll come right to you.
