After the years 1998-2001 most vehicles were equipped with a transponder "chip" key. The chip is embedded in the plastic head of the key and you usually don't even know it's there working, until you lose your key. It's there for security reasons and unless the car recognizes this chip and belonging to the vehicle, they car will not start! Or if it starts, it will turn off within seconds. You will usually see the security /theft light lit up on the dashboard when you attempt to use a key without the required programming.
Most car keys today, however, needs some kind of programming! It is the programming process that allows the key to recognized by the vehicles anti-theft system. Without this recognition, they car simply won't start. The key will turn in the ignition and fail to start or start for a few seconds and shut down. This anti-theft system is designed as a foil to thieves that might want to steal your vehicle.
Don't replace your ignition before you call us. Replacing your ignition, when all you need is to replace the key is crazy overkill. It is usually much less expensive to replace the key and you will avoid the inconvenience of having a car you can't lock, because the new ignition key will not work in the doors / trunk.
Many people believe it is the key that needs programming, but actually it's the car's computer that needs to recognize the new key. That's why the programming has to be done by the vehicle.
If you go to the dealer for a key and it requires programming, you will need to tow the car to the dealer (during dealer hours). Not very convenient--and also an added expense.
