If your car key is a chip key (transponder key), then it transmits a radio signal at a frequency that your car’s immobilizer is set to recognize. If the key is not programmed to emit the right signal, then your car won’t start, even if the key turns in the ignition. The key blade must be correctly cut, and the chip must be correctly programmed in order to start your car.
Even if you have a push-start ignition, your key fob has a valet key inside. If you have never had problems with the fob, you have probably never used it. However, if the fob stops working, the only way to get into the car is with a valet key. So, you will probably want us to cut the valet key when we create and program your new smart key.
We can often program a key you already have. However, depending on where you got the key, it may not work. We don’t recommend buying keys online, since there is no way to tell who made them or if they are OEM parts. Cheap aftermarket keys may not function properly and are not a good buy in the long run.
It is possible to program your own key, but it can be tricky. Every car has its own programming procedure, and you must follow it correctly.
