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 is paired to the vehicle, the 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. IMPORTANT: IF YOU HAVE SPARE KEY AROUND, IT MIGHT NOT BE A WORKING CHIP KEY; DON'T ATTEMPT TO START THE CAR NUMEROUS TIMES. (CHRYSLER, DODGE, JEEP AND OTHERS WILL SHUT DOWN THE ENTIRE ANTI-THEFT SYSTEM, CAR KEY SECURITY, (AFTER A FEW TRYS) AND WILL REQUIRE EXTRA WORK, MAYBE EVEN A TOW TO THE DEALER TO FIX IT). -- CALL US.
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. SEE WARNING ABOVE!
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 your doors / trunk.
Many people believe it is the replacement car key that needs to be programmed, but actually it's the car's computer that needs to recognize the new key. That's why the programming has to be done at the vehicle. That's why we come to you, if needed.
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.
