How a Chip Key Works: When you turn on your cars ignition, the engine control unit (ECU) will send a message to your car key, thus enabling it to start your car. The key must be cut correctly to engage the ignition lock and programmed properly to communicate with the automobile. Re-Programming chip keys must be done with special equipment, dealerships and professional locksmiths are always the preferred choice for reprogramming or duplicating a chip key.
Also known as Transponder Car Keys, car keys with remote keyless entry use a radio frequency with an identity code to communicate and operate your vehicle. Programming or Re-Programming a remote keyless entry (chip key) utilizes unique digital computers to access your cars’ computer and connect or re-connect it to your chip key
Even though chip keys might cost more to duplicate then the average car key, they help prevent your vehicle from being stolen and can actually lower your insurance (in some cases) by having it.
