Transponder Programming


Trasponder Key

Transponder Keys

Most modern vehicles have transponder/immobiliser key, this immobiliser is seperate from your central locking and is what allows your vehicle to start. A transponder is a small glass or carbon chip inside the plastic head, majority of the time you wouldn’t even know it’s there. The chip sends a message to the vehicles computer (ECU) once the vehicle detects the correct transponder it allows the vehicle to start.
