Common Myths People Believe about Microchip Car Keys

Microchip car keys, also referred to as transponder keys are designed to keep your car safe. They rely on special codes a car must recognize and without this key and right programming, that car wouldn't start. Cars relying on transponder keys are becoming more popular, and if yours is having programming issues, you can contact us at GreenPro Locksmith for help. Despite the effectiveness of these keys, there are still some myths that need to be debunked, these include the following;

Only a Car Manufacturer Can Program a Microchip Car Key

Most people believe that a microchip key is so secured because only its manufacturer can program it. Manufacturers and dealers have the right tools and software to re-program microchip keys, but a reputable auto locksmith service provider can also program such keys but you will pay much less while getting the same top-quality workmanship. You can rely on our auto locksmith technicians at GreenPro Locksmith for a reliable microchip car key programming service.

You Can Only Get One Transponder Key Per Car

Coding makes transponder keys so secure because it can work with a single car. Perhaps this feature is the reason why many people believe there can be only one transponder key per vehicle. As a matter of fact, several transponder keys can be programmed to work for a single vehicle. Manufacturers will allow a certain number of programming codes per vehicle and that covers the number of replacement keys. what matters most is that your microchip key has a code that only works for your car. 

Transponder Keys Can be Easily Disabled

This is another myth that holds no truth. Many people believe that high-tech vandals or robbers can use sophisticated tools to disable their microchip keys and steal their cars but that is not the reality. Though transponder cars can be disabled that will require a specialized tool that only a certified locksmith or dealership can possess. A thief may not possess the sophisticated tool required to disable a microchip key. 

You Can Purchase a Transponder Key Online

This is actually true but you are likely to end up being scammed when you purchase a microchip key over the internet. You may purchase a microchip key online that will work just fine in the beginning, most of them will stop working after few days or weeks and you will end up spending more to buy a whole key.

If you plan to purchase a microchip key online, you need to be sure of dealing with a reputable supplier and that you are getting a good product. Auto locksmith service providers and dealerships also provide a safe and secured online purchase of microchip keys. Another dark side of purchasing a transponder key online is that most of such keys may not be reprogrammable.
