Since around 1997, car keys were introduced with tiny unseen transponder chips in the head of the keys, which talk to your car’s onboard computer. These are essential for starting your vehicle!
This was done by the manufacturers to make the cars harder to steal. However, as a result, the price to duplicate keys has increased.
It also means that if all keys are lost, the physical key needs to be made AND the car’s onboard computer has to be reprogrammed. This can be an involved and costly process.
So get some spares ready to avoid the lost keys dilemma.
