Facts about Transponder Keys:
Transponder keys are keys with transponders embedded in the keys key bowe or head, and these transponders use radio waves to communicate with your cars computer. The communication that takes place between your cars computer and the transponder key is basically verification of an electronic code that is understood by your cars computer and the transponder key. Inserting the wrong transponder key into your cars ignition lock will cause your cars computer to reject the code generated by your transponder key, and your car will not start.
It isn't always easy to identify a transponder key, because the transponder key is embedded in the keys key bowe and covered by plastic. However, most transponder keys have a larger key bowe or head, than a normal key, but this isn't always true. Usually your cars dealership can tell if your car uses a transponder system from your cars VIN number, and some locksmiths can identify transponder keys using special equipment.
