What is a transponder key?
A transponder key is an automotive ignition key that contains a computer chip. When you turn the transponder key in the ignition cylinder, a radio signal is sent to the transponder circuit from your car’s computer.
It acts as a security mechanism for your vehicle that is programmed specifically for your car.
Without the chip, your car will not start and furthermore, if you insert a key with the wrong chip, there is a big chance your car will immobilise.
