Key Programming

Since the mid 90's the law in the UK stated that all new private vehicles sold will be fitted with an anti theft immobiliser system, this was introduced earlier by some manufactures and was also introduced on commercial vehicles. This anti theft system is quite secure. The Keys have an embedded transponder chip that must be recognised by the vehicle before it will start. The circuitry that controls this function is an integral part of the onboard computer system of the vehicle. Until the system recognises a registered Key, the starting, fuel, and ignition systems of the vehicle are not functional. This has helped to reduce car theft but causes major problems for the vehicle owners when the vehicle Keys are lost or stolen. Entry into the vehicle in such situations and following lockout has become more of a problem.

New replacement Car Keys and Fobs will require Programming to the vehicles Immobiliser, using the correct Key Programming equipment and a secret code that is unique to the vehicle or they simply will not work. Most ordinary locksmiths are no longer able to assist in this situation. Our workshop is equipped with the latest transponder production equipment, keys and cutting machines along with the latest state-of-the-art Key Programming equipment. This enables us to cut and program most makes of vehicle Keys in house.

Did you know that the Car Key is the most daily used item? With cars being such a necessity today for most of us, it is vital not to be caught out by losing or breaking your only Key. If this should happen the total cost would be considerably more than buying a spare key.
