Cutting the Keys

We follow a step-by-step basic procedure for making replacement keys for a car when all the car keys are lost. The methods used to deliver a complete product for a remote transponder key depends on the manufacturer.

Diagnostic Programming

Broadly speaking, diagnostic programming requires using a specialist computer tool to connect the car’s security system via OBS port that lies hidden somewhere under the dash board. We use different diagnostic tools and procedures for different cars. Once the diagnostic tool is connected, depending on the car and type of system used, we delete the lost keys and remote to program in the new keys and remotes.

EEPROM Programming

EEPROM is an abbreviation for Electrically Erasable Programmable Read Only Memory. It is a type of computer chip that is used in a wide variety of modern electronic devices. We use this method to correctly program the car and/or transponder chip so that the car starts without any problem when you turn the key.

Remote Programming

In cars of certain make and model, the remote for central locking is programmed either during diagnostic or EEPROM stages. For cars that don’t use these processes to program the remote, we remotely programmed their car keys by “chicken dance” method.

Proximity & Smart Keys

Today the number of cars on the road with proximity or smart keys, along with the feature of push button start is soaring. These cars have sensors that detect the correct key when it’s in the vicinity and allows entry and starting of the car without taking it out of your pocket. We program the transponder and remotes using the diagnostic method.

Before We Start Our Work, We Require the Following Details:

Since every make and model is different, their blades, remotes and transponders vary greatly. That’s the reason why we require complete details of your car to deliver the right solutions. We need the license plate number of your car registered with Vic road. Using this, we get the VIN that makes it easy to identify the make, model and year of a particular car.

Contact us For Modern Car Keys and Components

Right from the early 90s, a majority of vehicles come with sophisticated security features like electronic immobilisers, central locking system and high security locks. These advanced elements have also made the modern car keys equally sophisticated. Just as the variations of types and security level in the traditional key, the modern car keys also come with a unique remote control. This unique remote control is used to control the central locking, transponder chip and also the touch screen.

We examine all the 3 main components in detail to understand its unique functionality.

If the key is all metal with no plastic and still it starts, then it means that your car doesn’t have an immobiliser that requires a transponder.

If you own a car that is built after 1995, then it will have an electronic immobiliser and the key will have a transponder. Even if the key doesn’t have any visible electronic component, except a plastic head, there are possibilities that it has a chip hidden in the plastic head.
