Replacing Transponders

A Car Transponder

Is your transponder sending out incorrect signals? Is your engine failing to start? If so, your transponder may be damaged. While you may be able to open the locks on your vehicle, a broken transponder could prevent your car from starting.

As with all types of technology, transponder chips will not last forever. Over time, it may become damaged and stop working. An old or malfunctioning transponder will usually display the following warning signs:

  • The vehicle will not start and there are no obvious reasons why.
  • Your transponder is visibly damaged (e.g., water damage).

Fortunately, we at All Pro Locksmiths have the skills and expertise to replace your faulty transponder quickly and painlessly. As professional locksmiths, we can offer replacement keys, coding services, and central lock repairs at lightning speed. If you’re keen to get back on the road as soon as possible, don’t hesitate to call our friendly team today.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do locksmiths determine how to program the new key?

A qualified locksmith will use one of the antennas within the car’s bodywork. Radio pulses emanating from the key’s housing can also be used to determine how the new key should be programmed. Vehicles with smart keys often have a mechanical backup – usually in the form of a spare key blade.

How long do smart key batteries generally last?

This will vary, depending on the make and model of the vehicle. However, in most cases, a smart key battery will last from 2 to 3 years. Some fob keys last from 4 to 6 years.

Can Wi-Fi interfere with my car’s keyless remote?

Yes. Some Wi-Fi systems can generate harmonic interference if they have poor shielding or wiring. You may need to reconfigure your router to prevent the issue from occurring. Placing your remote in an RFID-blocking wallet may also be of use.

Can I program a transponder key myself?

Technically, it is possible to programme your own transponder key. However, this may be difficult for owners of certain car models and is best left to professionals.

Can you add central locking to a car?

Yes, it is possible to convert your car to a central locking system. While it may be possible to do this yourself with a special kit, professionals such as the team at All Pro Locksmiths will be able to finish the job quickly and to a higher standard.

Are you cheaper than my local dealership?

Yes. Dealerships often charge much more for relatively simple services such as transponder reprogramming.
