• Houston Locksmith - Pop-A-Lock


When transponder keys were first introduced in the 1990s, they were touted as an extremely effective measure against car theft. And for good reason: they have a special feature that makes it all but impossible to start the car without the right key. Transponders have a radio frequency chip in the top of the key that sends a unique signal to a receiver near the ignition. If the signal is correct, the car will start. If it is absent or incorrect, you're out of luck. Even a mechanically identical key won't work if it isn't programmed with the right signal.

Transponders protect car owners from unauthorized key duplication and hot wiring. However, they also make key replacement or duplication less straightforward than going to the hardware store and cutting a new one. If you've lost a transponder key, you have just two options: the dealership or a licensed auto locksmith.

Pop-A-Lock Houston can help you get into your car, replace your chip key, and get you back on the road with the least amount of hassle. In case of a lockout, dealers may tow your car to the dealership, adding to the total cost and time involved.
