What is a Transponder?
A transponder is a part of the key which disarms the immobiliser when it is used to start the engine of a vehicle. They have mostly become an industry standard in all modern cars manufactured after 1997.
How does it Work?
When you place your key into the ignition barrel and turn it to start your vehicle, the barrel emits a magnetic field which in-turn sends a small amount of power to the microchip/RFID chip located in the head of the key.
We do caution that attempting to start a car with an unprogrammed transponder key will more than likely shut the Engine Control Unit down which completely immobilises your vehicle.
