Bay Area Transponders and Transponder Chip Keys

Pop-A-Lock Locksmith serving San Francisco, San Mateo, San Carlos, Berkeley and surrounding Bay Area, has the proper equipment and the highly trained locksmith technicians to not only get you into your locked vehicle and make you a duplicate key, but to make sure it is programmed properly to your car’s transponder codes.  They can also generate you a new transponder key with accurate transponder codes to replace your lost car keys.

A transponder key (sometimes called a “chip key“) is a key that has been designed to deter theft of a given vehicle by providing a radio link (radio frequency identifier or “RFID”) between the car and the key.  Transponder keys with their unique RFID radio frequency offer an increased degree of theft resistance, lost transponder car keys makes it necessary for you to select a qualified professional locksmith, whose equipment supports the transponder protocol when it comes to originating or duplicating transponder keys.

Keep in mind that any key or keys (even one with the wrong transponder code) that are correctly cut mechanically will allow the ignition to turn.  However, only a properly cut key with the properly coded transponder will allow the engine to start.

Remember, if you ever get caught needing a new transponder key or any auto locksmith service, call Pop-A-Lock Bay Area.
