Transponder Key Programming

Replacing a transponder key for your vehicle is not as simple as getting a new key cut to match your ignition. This process should be performed by a trained professional in order to ensure the key will function properly and start your vehicle. All Pop-A-Lock technicians are thoroughly trained to perform programming of transponder keys for any make or model vehicle, and we guarantee our work to be of the highest level.

What Is A Transponder Key?

Transponder keys are specially designed to provide a higher level of security by placing a signal emitting circuit inside the key. This circuit is activated when it receives a signal from the computer in your vehicle, which is known as the ECU, or electronic control unit. Communication between these two components is required to start the vehicle, and will result in failure to start if they are improperly configured/programmed. This technology greatly increases the security of your vehicle's ignition, as it cannot be started by any other means.
