How Do Transponder Keys Work?
The word transponder is a combination of the words transmitter and responder. The technology behind transponder keys was added to vehicles in order to make it more difficult for them to be stolen. This relatively new form of auto protection has been shown to be relatively successful, as since it was introduced, car theft rates have gone down dramatically since the year 2000.
Of course, though, this technology does not ensure that your car is completely safe, as criminals in their determination and inventiveness have found other ways to profit from cars such as:
- Towing the vehicle and using it for parts replacements
- Bypassing the transponder
- Re-programming the transponder system
