About transponder chips:
In the late 1990’s transponder chips were introduced in vehicles to the U.S market. A transponder is an electromagnetic chip which contains car specific information that is required for a vehicle to start. In most vehicles that are equipped with a transponder, if there is an information mismatch or absence, the vehicle’s fuel pump will be disabled therefore, the vehicle will not start.
How do I know If my key needs to be programmed?
If your car is made after the year 1998 there is a high chance that the keys need to be programmed in order to start the car. In most vehicles there is a security light which will normally flash if you have inserted a key that is not programmed. For example: If you own a Honda, you will see a flashing key symbol on the cluster that indicates that the key that has been inserted is not programmed. The vehicle engine will turn over, but it will not start because the information in the transponder chip is missing or incorrect.
Can I program a car key myself?
Some vehicles you can program the key without any special equipment. However, most vehicles will require a car key programmer in order to match the information and code the keys.
Is Triton Locksmith able to program car keys?
Absolutely! We are equipped with some of the latest and most sophisticated car key programming equipment that is available. All of our mobile car key programming units are equipped with the scanners that are needed to get your vehicle running. When you contact Triton Locksmith for any car key programming services, please provide us with the year make and model of the vehicle that we will be working on, and we will ensure to come prepared for the key programming procedure.
How much does it cost to get a key programmed?
Car key programming cost will depend on the year make and model of the vehicle. For instance, if it is a simple procedure such as lets say a 2005 Ford F-150 or a 2011 Honda Civic, you will be looking at around $75 to get the key programmed. When it comes to more complicated vehicles for example a 2017 BMW 3 Series, the actual computer of the vehicle needs to be removed from the vehicle in order to match a new key that will be able to start the car. In such instances the cost will range between $250-$450 depending on the difficulty. That said, there are also older models that will require extra labor and risk such as an early model toyota and Lexus, which in those vehicles the computer of the car also has to be removed and opened in order for us to read and write the new key information.
