Types of Car Key Replacement
Blade Car Keys
These are the standard, older types of car keys where it is just a machine-cut key. Please note that we can only cut basic car keys for cars that do not require a transponder key (these tend to be older cars).
Some years ago, many car key makers started to fit their keys with an electronic transponder chip. The chip works by means of a unique code for the car’s computer. The transponder sends this unique code is sent to your car’s computer and, if it does not match, then the car will not start.
Many cars have some type of remote-controlled unlocking device which you operate with a button on the key fob. Flip remote keys are keys that retract into the main fob of the key.
Smart keys are, for all intents and purposes, not actually keys as they do not fit into a lock and are designed to stay in your pocket. These normally allow you to touch a button or sensor which can then unlock the car. You can also start your car with the push of a button.
