CINCINNATI AUTOMOTIVE TRANSPONDER PROGRAMMING
We are Automotive Key
We make keys for cars, trucks and motorcycles
At Automotive Key in Cincinnati, we reprogram the transponder in your key on-site. A transponder chip disarms a vehicle immobiliser when the car key is used to start the engine.
The majority of keys to cars built after 1995 contain transponder chips, so you need to make sure your automotive locksmith knows how to reprogram it correctly. The process of key identification is similar in most automotive transponder systems. Once a key is inserted into the ignition lock and turned to one of the 'on' or 'run' positions, the induction coil that is mounted around the ignition lock sends out an electromagnetic field of energy. The windings in the transponder chip absorb that energy and power the electronic chip to emit a signal. The induction coil reads the signal and sends it to some type of computer device to recognize the signal. If the signal is recognized as being already in the computer’s memory the signal is accepted and other electronic components in the vehicle are set into motion to allow the starting of the vehicle or the continuation of the engine running. Immobiliser systems based on Transponders may not be as safe as they are considered to be. Some immobiliser systems tend to remember last key code for so long that they may even accept a non-transponder key even after a few minutes of taking out the original key from ignition. Not only do we do the reprogramming, we also carry keys in stock, so you don't have to wait for days or weeks with a dealer.
We are here to make replacing your key as painless as possible. Transponder key reprogramming can be a nightmare for an amateur locksmith, so go with the professionals and save time. 100% Customer Satisfaction Guaranteed.
Losing your transponder car key and finding an automotive locksmith to make a replacement key these days is not an economical task. Although coded car keys are meant to increase auto security and make your vehicle theft-proof, better auto security and technology has its cost. Car dealerships will charge you way more than you may have imagined for vehicle computer reprogramming & file restoration, in fact, most will just tell you to replace it because they don't want to deal with it. Our emergency locksmith team can duplicate or clone your key and remote for far less money than the dealerships will charge you. Better yet, there's no need to wait a day or two to receive your new key. We carry an extensive inventory of keys to meet the demands of our service area so you will never have to wait for your key to arrive.
