After 1995, vehicles started to contain a small transponder chip within the key. This new security measure drastically lowered car crime. When the car key is turned in the ignition, the engine control unit (ECU) on the car sends an electronic message to the key. Once the transponder in the key sends the correct message back the engine will start.

This technology greatly helped with the lowering of car crime. However, if you had unfortunately lost your keys the process of replacing these keys became increasingly difficult.

Our services can replace or repair any transponder chip in your keys. We can then reprogram the chip to your car. We are also able to erase all old or lost keys meaning they won't be able to start the engine.
