Car Key Programming in the High Desert

The transponder keys is a computer chip that is placed inside the head of the ignition key. This chip has an embedded code, uniquely defined to each key, which emits radio signals to another device installed in the car. The signals transmitted are predetermined radio frequencies that are identified by the device installed behind the steering wheel. After the identification, the device verifies the code and performs the functions that it had been asked to. In case the code is not recognized by the device, it will not unlock the car door or start the engine. Thus, only the owner who is in possession of the key will be able to start the car.

The transponder key gives the owner an access to the vehicle through keyless entry. A single key can be used for performing various functions such as locking/unlocking the car door, starting the engine, activating/deactivating the alarm and turning on/off the fuel pump. It is an added advantage as you don’t have to carry different keys. When an intruder tries to hotwire your car, the system emits signals to the transponder key followed by the information received through the car sensors. This key ensures the security of the car by eliminating the chances of car theft.
