"Think outside the lock"
may also be called “chip keys”. Transponder keys
are automotive ignition keys with signal-emitting circuits built inside. When
the key is turned in the ignition cylinder, the car's computer transmits a radio
signal to the transponder circuit.
The circuit has no battery; it is energized by the radio signal itself. The
circuit typically has a computer chip that is programmed to respond by sending a
coded signal back to the car's computer. If the circuit does not respond or if
the code is incorrect, the engine will not start. Many cars immobilize if the
wrong key is used by intruders.
Chip Keys successfully protect cars from theft in two ways: forcing the ignition
cylinder won't start the car, and the keys are difficult to duplicate. This is
why chip keys are popular in modern cars and help decrease car theft.|
