Blade keys are the typical, steel-cut car keys that were the industry standard in the US before 1995. They have no chips or communication technology inside. They’re no longer in widespread use, as it’s mostly drivers with older car models who require them. However, replacing them is simple and can usually be done pretty quickly.
Transponder keys are the most common key in use today. They’re made with a chip inside the fob which sends a low-level signal to your car’s onboard computer system. The signal is what allows your car to recognize your key and startup. It’s unique to your car and can only be replicated by a trained, professional. So, what to do when you’ve lost your transponder key? Well, you can go to a dealership and pay outrageous prices. Or, you can call The Locksmith Indianapolis and we can originate a transponder key for your car much more affordably.Not sure you have a transponder key? There’s a couple of things you can look for. Usually, transponder keys are thicker than regular blade keys. They also have a hard, plastic shell that makes up the fob. You can always call the manufacturer or dealer if you’re unsure. (But remember – we can make you a much cheaper replacement!)
