Most vehicles today have upgraded the security of the ignition lock by adding in a radio transmitter called a "transponder" into the key itself.
This presents a challenge for the locksmith
wishing to continue to perform automotive locksmithing
as most of us have in the past. We have done what it takes to make keys for these newer vehicles. Computerized keymachines like the one pictured above keep us on the cutting edge of the field along with hand held scanning tools which we use to plug into your cars computer system to program new keys into the car.
We can also handle most of the newer "proximity" based remotes which don't have a traditional mechanical key at all. You keep your remote in your purse or pocket and just press a button to start the car.
