Q: What is a transponder key system?
A simplified explanation of a transponder key system is as follows: located around the mechanical key hole of your ignition is an antenna coil
. When the key is turned on, the coil becomes energized and creates a small magnetic field. This magnetic field
in turn energizes a small transponder chip imbedded in the plastic head of your key. The chip
then emits an alpha numeric code signal
to the antenna ring which the carries the information to the cars computer. If the signal contains the proper coding, the computer allows the car to start.
Q: Why should I use Lockout Express LLC as my locksmith?
The proper tools, training and key blanks are all required to make a key properly. I have state-of-the-art equipment
and have been certified by the Associated Locksmiths of America
. When choosing a locksmith ask lots of questions and check them out thoroughly. Also, beware of online gimmicks selling discount keys. There are many online companies selling phony, unusable keys and remotes that are much cheaper than maybe the quote you received. The old adage, ‘If it sounds too good to be true it probably is’
should be adhered to.
