Transponders and Transponder Chips


Transponders, or chip keys, were invented for your protection against hot-wiring and unauthorized access. Unfortunately, if you lose your transponder key, you’ll face the same problems as a thief would: an engine that won’t start and a car that can’t get you where you need to go. Transponder keys, which are now common in most makes and models, contain a special chip hidden in the head that transmits a code to the ignition. If it’s the right code, the engine will start; otherwise, you’re out of luck.
