Mobile Transponder Key Programming @ Loyola Service
If you drive a vehicle that was built within the last 20 years and it is not equipped with a push-button ignition, chances are that it uses a transponder key. A transponder key has a computer chip located inside the thick plastic key head which is programmed to connect to a computer located inside your vehicle. Known as a chipped key or a high-security car key, transponder keys were introduced by automotive manufacturers to make vehicles more secure when compared to traditional metal traditional keys.
Vehicles that are equipped with a transponder key will not operate unless a key is inserted into the ignition which has been programmed to the vehicle, even if the key is cut correctly.

Chip Key Programming
The process of programming a high-security car key varies between different makes and models of cars. Some types of vehicles use onboard programming that can be successfully used for chip key programming.
This process eliminates the need for expensive computer equipment and codes when linking a new transponder key to the vehicle, however, this method only works on specific vehicles and requires specialized knowledge regarding the exact steps that need to be taken to successfully link a new chipped key with the onboard.
Vehicles without an onboard programming option need to have new transponder keys programmed using a high-tech coding machine that is available only to licensed, verified locksmith and car dealerships who specialize in laser key cutting. This equipment costs thousands of dollars to purchase, which is why having a new high-security car key costs significantly more than it does to simply cut an old-style metal key.
Regardless of the technique that’s used to program new chip keys for your vehicle, we will need access to your car to complete the job. You can’t just walk into an auto repair shop and get a new chipped key created without having your vehicle with you. This is because the key needs to be synced with the computer inside your car.
