Car Key Programming
Old cars vs. new cars and the evolution of the technology
As society evolved in the last 2 centuries, so did the cars. Having a car, two centuries ago was more of a luxury option, where today it became a commodity. The vehicles, in the beginning, were very simply built, where all that was needed was a simple car key to start the car. Today, vehicles are more complex. Some still require just a simple car key to start the car, but since 1995 these keys have incorporated in them a transponder chip. The introduction of the transponder chip was in response to the increased number of auto theft and required programming. While a simple car key can perform the fundamental task of starting the engine, there are many other variations of car keys such as fob keys, flip fob keys, keyless fob keys, dash fob keys. What they all have in common, is that all these car Keys need to be programmed with the security modules and be recognised as soon as the fob key is present within the car, inserted into the ignition barrel or into the dash. As with all gadgets, at least for the number of functionalities that these fob keys have, we can call them gadgets, are prone to become defective or sometimes for no apparent reasons they can de-synchronise which can render the vehicle unusable for the time being.
Here are a few reasons why car key programming may be needed:
- New car key;
- New car key replacement;
- Car battery replacement;
- Car key battery replacement;
- Water penetration.
