Unlike a standard car key, a transponder key has a chip that acts as an additional security feature to enhance user authentication. The chip sends out an alert to your vehicle’s transceiver, and the car only starts when it receives the correct signal. You have to program the key if you want to use it in the ignition. Not every vehicle needs programming, but any car designed to use a transponder key cannot start without one. The key can open the trunk and the doors, but the vehicle will not start.

If you lose your transponder key, it is defective, or you want a spare, the best thing to do is to call TBC Locksmith. Our fast, professional team has extensive experience in making transponder keys for different types of cars. When you need us, we will send a technician to help you at any time of day or night in any location within 50 kilometers from Toronto.

Superior On-site Services

We can program a new transponder key on the spot and in minutes. If you need a duplicate key, we will take slightly longer, but you can trust us to work fast without sacrificing quality. We will purchase a blank transponder key that is appropriate for your car. It must have the proper shape and without previous programming. We look out for your best interests, and our technicians will do the work right.

Each vehicle has its programming pattern that requires precise information relating to your car and specialized equipment. Therefore, it is better to let the experts do it. We can program some keys remotely using only the existing keys. However, it will still need some secondary mechanical procedures inside the car. We will inform you and complete the process at your convenience.  

If you want multiple options for your key, we will program the transponder using your vehicle and include as many additional capabilities as possible. We will find the code that matches your transceiver and copy it onto a blank key. If you like, we can erase the existing keys. In-car programming machines impose longer waiting times, a security feature that prevents quick illegitimate use of the devices. However, we will make it up to you with fast service.
