Car Key Replacement

Different types of car keys

Wafer car key replacement

The keys for opening the wafer lock can be marked with grooves on both the top and bottom of the blade. Double serenity is created so that the key can be inserted in two different ways. However, most wafer locks found in cars have wafers above and below the lock. This means that biting on these keys will move some wafers up and others down. These locks work similarly to a standard pin Tumblr lock.

The wafers are spring-loaded and raised by biting the key at different heights. The height they need to increase depends on the size of the wafer. The longer the wafer, the deeper the groove. If the wafer is short, the groove will be shallow. Words can be found next to these keys. These words will flip pictures of each other because the key has to work in two different ways.

The security of these locks is not all that impressive. There are many tools that can open the lock without the right key. Items such as Ziggle keys, Marshall keys, and Wave keys can be inserted into the keyway to open the lock. There are various methods of operation of these skeletal keys. Some have to turn in the lock while others just have to be inserted and turned as if they were the right keys.

Adding a traditional wafer key will help with security. For example, a transponder chip embedded in the plastic cover of a bow will prevent the car from starting with one of these keys. However, a transponder chip will not prevent a thief from opening your car door. If you need to cut a wafer key to replace your car key, make sure you also check if you need a transponder chip.

Slider car key replacement

A Car Key Replacement that moves sliders is known as a slider key. These keys are easily recognizable for a snake-like path cut along the blade. In almost all cases, this pattern will be displayed on either side of the key so that it can be inserted in two different ways.

Like wafer locks, these paths are used to elevate or lower the internal components of the lock. The lock slider sliders follow the cut path on the key and when the key is fully inserted, all sliders should be at their appropriate height. In contrast to the sheer line of a wafer lock, the slider lock will have different gates.

Each slider needs to be attached to a gate so that they are out of the way and allow the lock to rotate freely. This means that the deepest gate will always be the true gate. For security, multiple unnecessary gate locks have been added. These are known as false gates and the slider does not provide enough depth to keep the lock unobstructed.

Without a false gate in the lock, these devices would be incredibly easy to pick up or open. This is not a concern for most car owners because very few criminals pick locks, and even fewer car thieves pick locks. In addition, most slider keys only serve as a backup. These are the keys of choice for most smart key systems, and will not start the car if the fob is not present.

Often these keys are hidden in the fob and slide when a fob button is pressed. Once this button is pressed, the key can be pulled for free. Remember to keep this key in the slot again until it clicks and locks.

If you need to cut a slider key to replace your car key, this is not a problem. All it takes is a laser key cutter. Locksmith Legends can cut that key and make you feel safe knowing you will always have access to your car.

Car key fob replacement

A key fob simply referred to as a fob, is the electronic part of the key. A key fob is often described as a kind of remote. This remote will open your door at the click of a button. In the new push-button ignition car, a fob is required to start the car. With proximity sensors, fob can act as a security token. A security token is a term used in the world of electronic locks.

This means that the fob is a device that allows the user to authenticate and gives them access that would otherwise be secure. Instead of needing to swipe this token against a lock, it can send a signal to the car. This will be done using Bluetooth, Infrared, or Near Field Communication (NFC).

Going to some cars, Fob will unlock the door. The fobs that allow you to easily unlock a car with the key you hold are often called smart keys. This is the same technology that allows a car to start with the push of a button. A new trend from Key Forbes is Remote Start. This means that your key fob can be used to start the car before you get inside.

Similarly, your doors can be opened or locked when you are quite far away, now some automobiles give the same power to start the car. This feature must not be complete without the ability to remotely stop the car.

Key replacement of transponder vehicle

A transponder key uses two key systems in conjunction with each other. First, you will have a traditional key, which is either a slider or a wafer key. This key works just like any other key. It is completely inserted into the lock and turned. Same for operation doors, trunks, and ignition. The second system that works is the transponder chip.

The term transponder is a portmanteau of “transmitter” and “responsive”. It is an electronic chip with non-volatile memory. This protects the chip’s programming from being removed when power is removed from the device. When the key is turned on in the ignition cylinder, the car emits a small electronic field that powers the chip. With this power, the transponder chip sends a message to the car’s transceiver.

The transceiver can be found in the key ring, which is wrapped around the ignition cylinder. If the signal is OK the car will start. The transponder is male (key) and the transceiver is female (key ring). For car key replacement to work, both parts must be functional.

This type of safety means fuel injection and/or disabling your car starter if an unprogrammed or incorrectly programmed key is used. The distance that the transponder chip can take from the transceiver varies. In some cars, the exact distance from the key ring to the key bow after the key is fully inserted. It can be as incomplete as the two front seats in a car.

If you lose a transponder key, you will need a new one that is not programmed. Your car key replacement will include a key that has been properly cut and a chip that has been properly programmed. Transponder Key Programming is a service that  Locksmith Legends offers along with our stable car key replacement services.
