Automotive Key Cutting Perth – lost or stolen

Has another car locksmith in Perth said that they can't help you because it’s a transponder? A1 Locksmiths can because we specialise in all types of automotive keys in Perth. Whether it be genuine remote key, smart key or aftermarket non remote keys, we have the required mobile diagnostic programming technology to cut and program your transponder or electronic keys whether you have a key or not.

What are transponder keys?
The biggest change to the automotive industry in recent times has been the introduction of the built-in immobilize system on most cars manufactured since 1995 (late 94 in some cases). This involves placing a microchip in the head of the key, which is a miniature transmitter and receiver. There is an engine management system in the engine compartment that can recognize the signals transmitted from the key. If the correct signals are not detected the engine will not start. Transponder keys are now the most common type of lost car keys by Perth drivers.

How does a microchip work?
An electronic chip with a permanent memory which contains an electronic code. The transponder has an antenna with which it can interface with an external electronic control device. Through the antenna the device emits a fixed frequency signal. The transponder receives the signal and then transmits its electronic code, by means of special frequency modulatons, to the control device which is able to process the code. The transponder has no external input power supply (passive system) - it receives the energy necessary to work from the signal emitted by the external control device (inductive coupling between the control device antenna and that of the transponder).

Smart Key
The smart key allows the driver to keep the key fob in their pocket when unlocking, locking and starting the vehicle. The key is identified via one of several antennas in the car's bodywork and a radio pulse generator in the key housing. Depending on the system, the vehicle is automatically unlocked when the door handle, trunk release, or an exterior button is pressed. Vehicles with a smart key system fitted are required to have a mechanical backup, usually in the form of a spare key blade supplied with the vehicle. Some manufacturers hide the backup lock behind a cover for styling.

Car Key Replacement
A1 Locksmiths provide a quick and affordable service for car key cutting in Perth, north or south of the river. We can provide a shell key for your broken car keys for many makes and models. This is a much cheaper option than replacing the whole key as we can reuse the internal part of your key which has all the programming already in it and put it into a new shell and recut the metal blade to give you a new key.

Spare Keys
