Sydney’s Preferred Automotive Locksmith to Car Keys Replacement

Automotive Keys are Made Differently These Days
If your car was born after 1990, chances are it will use a Transponder key. Transponder keys are different because of what is embedded in their head. A microchip.
If you lose your car keys or have them stolen, your car could be stolen, or taken for a joyride. Using specialist automotive key equipment, we recode your key and the ignition switch it controls.
Unless we recode your Ignition, your transponder key won’t work.
Why are Transponder Automotive Keys More Expensive than Regular Car Keys?
A few reasons:
- The base metal is more expensive
- The microchip embedded in the head of the key is expensive
- To make the key work, an automotive locksmith also recode your Car’s Ignition System to ensure it matches the key made

Automotive Keys and Transponder Keys Replacement
Security for our automotive is imperative. That is why we offer car key replacements for any brand or model of car.
For transponder keys, we use a piece of special equipment where an RFID or a Radio Frequency Identification chip is placed inside the head of the key that your car can verify by programming the ignition.
We also use a particular machine and durable materials for regular car keys to make a replacement copy that works like the original lost or damaged key.

What are common automotive locksmith problems?
We usually solve several automotive issues such as lost keys, locked keys in the car, blown a fuse, transponder battery issues, key malfunction, faulty locks and broken actuators.
Are transponder keys more secure than regular keys?
Transponder keys have a unique embedded RFID chip in the plastic head of the key. The connection between the key and the car is wireless. The ignition reads the chip in the transponder before you can start the vehicle.
A regular key can easily be copied and used without another layer of security. Therefore, having a transponder key adds extra protection, which makes it more secure.
