A transponder chip key uses a radio signal to authorize ignition of your car. While it is the key itself that turns the ignition, the transponder chip in the key sends a signal to the car’s computer which then allows the car to start. If you have the right key, but the transponder chip is not functioning or it needs to be reprogrammed, you will not be able to start your car.
The advantage provided by transponder chips is that if you lose your key, you can remove the lost key’s transponder code from the car’s computer. In other words, that key will no longer be able to start the car. This added level of security is the primary reason that car manufacturers install this feature.
If you lose your key or if the original is malfunctioning, you will need to program a new key or reprogram the transponder chip in the existing one.
