Key FOB Programming

Home » Key FOB Programming

All vehicles made since 1995 have an immobilizer system installed. For a car to start, it needs a key that the car’s computer recognizes. These types of keys use a variety of technologies to work. You might have heard them call smart keys, transponder keys, and key FOBS (Frequency Operated Buttons).

If you need to reprogram car keys, FOBs, or remotes, please call 1 Response Locksmith at 305-675-1971 for immediate response anywhere around the Miami-Dade area.

The days of traditional car keys is definitely gone, though we still duplicate them on older vehicles. These days, there are multiple types of car keys on the market, many of which need to be programmed. Let’s look at a few of the options.

  • Transponder keys use an electronic chip embedded in the car key head. The key sends a unique code to the car’s computer. If the code doesn’t match, the car won’t start.
  • Car key remote controls can start the car, unlock the doors, sound an alarm, and even pop the trunk. The remote sends a coded message to the car’s computer. If the car doesn’t recognize the code, it won’t perform the desired action.
  • Smart keys aren’t technically a key because they don’t physically unlock a lock. Instead, they send signals to the car indicating an authorized driver is approaching. The driver gets in and uses a button to start the car itself.
  • VATS keys have a resister embedded into the key. When it’s inserted into the ignition, the car checks the key’s resister value against the resister value assigned to the car. If the match and the key fits, the car starts.

Each of these keys requires a different programming method. Our technicians have the training and equipment to do the job quickly and professionally.
