Transponders & Transponder Chip Keys

NEED TO REPLACE A TRANSPONDER CHIP KEY IN TAMPA?

TAMPA FLORIDA LOCKSMITH

Transponder keys are intentionally difficult to duplicate. That’s a good thing for keeping thieves away, but it makes replacing one of these ‘chip keys’ a bit more difficult than sauntering down to the hardware store. Unlike a regular key, a transponder key contains a chip that sends a unique signal to the ignition switch. If the signal is absent or incorrect, the engine will not start. Even if someone makes a copy of your key, it won’t work unless it’s programmed with the right signal.

Losing a transponder key means that you’ll need to call a professional car locksmith for a replacement. Take care of the problem the easy way by calling Pop-A-Lock Tampa.
