How Your Transponder Key Works (and Doesn’t Work)
The transponder key that came with your car uses wireless technology to talk to the computer in your vehicle. Your transponder ignition key has a computer chip in its head. When you insert the key in the ignition and turn it to start the car the car’s onboard computer essentially asks the transponder “Who goes there?” If the transponder responds with a valid code the computer allows the engine to start. If the onboard computer is not happy with the information it gets from the key it will refuse to allow the engine to start. In this way, even if someone is able to make a perfect copy of your key, if it’s not programmed with the proper transponder code it’s not going to start the car. And that’s great.
However, sometimes folks lose their keys and don’t have access to a backup. Or they try to start their car one day and find the transponder is not working properly. When this happens their car is essentially useless and will continue to be until you find someone who is capable of performing transponder key programming.

The Fast Affordable Solution
When problems with the transponder key arise folks tend to have one of two responses. Either they call their car dealer or they call a tow truck. If they can’t get through to their dealer the tow truck will be their backup plan. But both of these options are time consuming, money wasting and unnecessary. The dealer will charge you an arm and a leg for assistance (if you can get through to them) and the towing company is just going to move your car to their lot and then call a locksmith. Like us. In the end you’ll wind up paying for the tow (not cheap), any storage time incurred on the lot (not cheap) and the services of the locksmith. When all you really need to do was call B&W Locksmith and Auto.
