What are transponder keys and why do I need one?

Transponder keys offer the ease of convenience of a transmitter and a responder in one small handle. Allow our locksmiths at 561 Car Keys to respond to your needs before you need them! A transponder key has a chip installed within the key handle that emits a signal for a radio frequency. This transponder feature allows a nearby antenna to pick up a signal from your key and then either start or stop the ignition to your car. The ease of a transponder key allows you to utilize your key without having to physically use your key at all! Allow the radio frequency to do the work for you and keep your hands free.
