Transponder Programming Swansea
A transponder key has a chip that increases the security of your vehicle. The chip has a signal that communicates with your vehicle transmitter when you need to lock, unlock the doors or ignite the engine. If a vehicle either sends a wrong signal or fails to, the car does not start but will operate the doors and the trunk.
If your vehicle uses a transponder key, it must be programmed after replacement or duplication. You do not have to go to a dealer to program your vehicle as our technicians have the proficiency to program a car key. We know the ins and outs of the entire process. Transponder Programming is a complex process that requires technical knowhow coupled with professionalism and expertise. This is what defines us. We have been in the business of programming car keys for decades.
Not all keys need programming apart from transponder keys. A transponder key has two parts; a metallic part and a flattened rubber or plastic part. If you have such a key but are not sure if it is a transponder key, wrap the plastic part in a foil and try to use it to start the vehicle. A car that uses a transponder key only starts when you use a transponder key, so if the car does not start, then your car uses a transponder key. You can call us or visit us and we will confirm to you whether your vehicle uses a transponder key or not.
You can replace or duplicate your transponder key if it gets damaged or broken, or if it gets lost. Do not buy a secondhand transponder key as it will likely malfunction with your car. This is because transponder keys can only be programmed once and a secondhand car key has already been programmed beforehand. You cannot therefore program it to function with your car, so it is a waste of time and money to buy such a key.
Programming a transponder key takes minutes to complete. The key can either be programmed using another key or our locksmiths can use your car. Some vehicles require you to program the key when you are inside the vehicle. Our auto locksmiths are always careful with your car and will not damage anything during this process. They only retrieve a code that matches what the new key needs to function and then they copy it to the blank key. Some transponder keys can be programmed at a remote location without the vehicle, but at some point, the key needs to be programmed inside the vehicle. This is called secondary programming.
