Transponder keys are a common feature in automobiles these days. Most cars keys built after 1995 contain transponder chips in them. This chip deactivates the engine immobiliser and allows the engine to start. Transponder chips add a level of safety to cars against the threat of theft as the engine will start only after it receives the correct message from the key.
Transponder keys add to the safety because when the key is turned in the ignition, the ECU (engine control unit) of the car sends an electronic message to the key. The engine will start only if the ECU gets the correct reply from the transponder in the key.
Thus, even a button-less key will allow the car to start only when it is correctly cut to turn the lock and to deactivate the immobiliser. Car keys can be programmed with the help of special equipment and we are the people to go to if you need a transponder key in Perth.

If you happen to lose your car keys or if it is stolen, it becomes necessary that you change the programming of your keys. Otherwise, you will be leaving your car at the mercy of the people who picked your car, as they will have full access to it. We can help you to recode and re-programme your ignition so that the stolen or misplaced key cannot be used to start the car. We can also undertake this process to make the new set of keys compliant with the car after rekeying process. With us working on the reprogramming, it would be as easy as changing the knob of your car.
Just like reprogramming the keys and ignition, we also offer key duplication and replacement services. By duplicating the key, in the unlikely event of you losing your original key, you are ensuring that you will not be locked out of the car because you can use the spare key. Spare transponder keys are helpful in making duplicate keys quicker and cheaper.
