Transponder keys are the new generation in automotive security. These keys contain a small chip embedded in the head of the key that communicates with the computer in your vehicle. This chip is uniquely programmed to your car. When a key with the correct programming is used, it tells the car it is safe to start.
If you have a vehicle equipped with a transponder key system, there a few things you should know:
