Car locksmith – Programming a new key
Most cars today are highly advanced and come with chips being installed in their ignition keys, called transponders. These chips can connect to the ignition engine. If a thief tries to hotwire the car or try to start the car with another key, the car might get locked or freeze. However, this also means that having a key lost or damaged can be a real problem because you can’t simply create a duplicate key or cut a new one. These keys must be programmed to communicate with the car. You can get this done by a car dealership which isn’t hassle-free. It might take you days to get a new key. It is also going to cost you a lot. The cheaper alternative is to get an automotive locksmith to program the new key for you.
