Computer Chip/Electronic Car Keys

Electronic and computer chip keys for cars are a specialty of Klein Brothers.

With the rise of modern technology, remote means of securing vehicles and controlling their various functions are becoming increasingly popular. The majority of car keys made since 1995 contain a device that can receive and transmit radio signals, called a transponder chip. This chip disarms a vehicle’s immobilizer once the key is turned in the ignition to start the engine, adding an extra layer of security to your vehicle. Since then, laser-cut keys and VAT (Vehicle Anti Theft) keys have been made to perform the same function (added security). Additionally, many vehicles today are keyless, controlled by electronic keys, and most physical vehicle keys nowadays come attached to a small box, invariably made out of hard plastic, incorporating a set of buttons that can be pressed to remotely control certain functions of the vehicle, such as the popular push to start ignition, which enables users to start their engines with the press of a button. These small plastic boxes are called key fobs. The number of vehicle functions subject to the control of key fobs is increasing as technology advances and smart keys become smarter.

Unfortunately, technological advances come with certain problems attendant upon them. This is to be expected; these are the growing pains of modern technology. The key can break or snap, damaging or destroying the transponder chip within. Or the remote key fobs can be lost, misplaced, broken, or accidentally locked inside the vehicle, requiring replacement and/or reprogramming or recovery. Other problems can surface too. For example, the lock and unlock buttons stop working, or work only intermittently, or the fob becomes water damaged, or wear and tear causes the fob to start looking shabby. And that’s where we come in.
