One of the major enhancements in the automotive industry over the last decade is the introduction of computerized keys called Transponder Keys. These keys have a transmitter in the plastic head of the key that communicates with the car when the car is started and verifies the key is legitimate. This prevents brute-force thefts of automobiles because if the ignition is broken, it will turn but it won’t start the car.
Transponder keys require special equipment to read the information stored in the key as well as write that information to a new key after it has been cut to match your existing key.
