The ultimate guard against car theft:
Earlier car thefts were common. Car thieves used to break into the car, hotwired them and managed to drive them off. However, with the implementation of transponder keys in 1995, and its vast acceptance by the automobile industry, the tables turned. This simple device prevented hot wiring of the cars thus bringing down the instances of car stealing significantly.
How does it work?
Remote controlled key is extensively used for automatic locking and unlocking and is different from a transponder chip key system which works independently. It carries a microchip embedded inside having a unique serial number. When the key is inserted into the ignition, it transmits a low-level signal that is validated by the car to deactivate the immobilizer. If the signal is unrecognizable, the car will remain stationery. In more advanced systems, rolling codes are encrypted, wherein the validation code changes after every use, making transponder key cloning impossible.
Why you need an expert auto locksmith?
The transponder keys designed to protect your vehicle against thefts are quite simple to look at but are very complex. They work on two principals. Firstly, the physical appearance, precise cutting of the blade which goes inside the ignition and turn the tumblers.
