Transponder Keys: Explained!
The term ‘transponder’ essentially means a transmitter and a responder. Hence, transponder key acts as the communicator responsible for sending and receiving signals from an immobilizer installed in the car. The engine control unit has an immobilizer which works like an electronic security device. When turned off, it allows you to start the car. When turned on, the immobilizer will prevent any ignition. Transponder key is the tool that turns the immobilizer on and off. The practice of using an immobilizer is primarily to discourage and prevent auto thefts. The contemporary automobiles cannot be hotwired as in the old days because of the transponder key.
Transponder key may look very similar to a normal key. It is the door key and the ignition key. While transponder keys are state of the art and they are much more durable than ordinary keys, yet they can go kaput or malfunction from time to time. Physical damage, electronic or software issues along with a range of facilitating factors can render a transponder key unresponsive. If that happens, you need transponder key programming.
