Transponder ‘Chip’ Keys
A transponder key is a key with an electronic chip embedded into the plastic body of the key. The chip transmits a radio signal from a handheld device to a remote receiver in the vehicle. They’re most commonly used to unlock and start your vehicle. Each one is programmed to only start a specific vehicle, reducing the possibility of theft. The chip itself is passive, so it does not need a battery. A unique code within the vehicles’ ECU (engine management) matches the code held in the key, allowing it to start. If the chip is damaged or missing, then your vehicle will not start.
