Creating a keyless car key, also known as a keyless entry fob or a proximity key, is a complex process that typically requires specialized equipment and knowledge of the specific car's make and model. Here's a general overview of how a locksmith might create a keyless car key:
Whether you need a new key, key programming, or assistance with a car lockout situation, we can provide the expertise and assistance you require. A car key transponder, also known as a transponder key or simply a “chip key,” is a key that contains a small electronic chip (transponder) embedded in the plastic head of the key. The transponder key is designed to work with the car’s immobilizer system, which is a security feature used to prevent unauthorized starting of the vehicle. Here’s how a car key transponder works:
Cloning: In some cases, if the owner has a working key fob, the locksmith may use cloning technology to duplicate the existing key fob’s code onto a new one. This typically requires a cloning machine capable of copying the code from the existing key fob.
Cutting the Physical Key Blade: In addition to programming the electronic components, some keyless car keys also have a physical key blade that may be used to manually unlock the vehicle’s doors or start the engine in case of a dead battery or electronic malfunction. Fast Car Locksmith may need to cut a new key blade or transfer the existing one to the new key fob.
Testing: After programming and cutting the key, the Fast Car Locksmith will test the new keyless car key to ensure it functions correctly. This includes verifying that it can lock and unlock the doors, start the engine (if applicable), and perform other functions as intended.
Handover to the Owner: Once the new keyless car key is successfully created and tested, Fast Car Locksmith will provide it to the vehicle owner. The owner should test the new key fob to ensure it works correctly with the car.
It’s important to note that the ability to create a keyless car key can vary depending on the make and model of the vehicle, as well as Fast Car Locksmith’s equipment and expertise. Some advanced keyless entry systems may require access to the manufacturer’s databases or specialized tools, and not all locksmiths may be equipped to handle every type of keyless entry system.
Additionally, creating a keyless car key for a vehicle without proper authorization is often illegal due to security and anti-theft concerns.
