Car key programming in Rochester, NY
My Locksmith provides car key programming services for residents of Rochester, NY and the surrounding areas.
The reason for car key programming is:
Since 1995 car manufacturers began to build cars with a better security system. The change in the security system is basically adding a chip to the key that has to be programmed into the vehicle in order to start it. These keys are called transponder keys.
What is a transponder key?
A transponder key is a key that has a chip inside it. It is another security measure that is designed to increase the security of the car.
This chip communicates with the transmitter of your car and only when there is proper communication between them, you can start the vehicle. A key which is not programmed to the car will still open the door and the trunk but will not start the vehicle.
Each vehicle has a different key and a suitable chip.
Remote control programming in Rochester, NY
A remote control works on a radio transmitter which has the capability of pushing a button to unlock and lock the vehicle. Also, the remote control has the ability to start the car if the plug is present in the vehicle.
There are many types of remote controls. Therefore, there are a few things you should keep in mind if you are purchasing a remote control yourself.
First, it is necessary to distinguish which is the appropriate FCC (Federal Communications Commission) for your vehicle.
Second, be aware of second hand remote control or transponder key purchases.
