Prior to 1998 most model vehicles that were sold in the U.S.A were not equipped with any transponder chip that would increase the security of the vehicle and require it to be programmed except the GM VAT system, which we will discuss on a different page.
Why do car keys need to be programmed?
Not all car keys require programming however, most nowadays do. For instance you can find a newer 2018 Kia Optima that is not a push to start and it does not require a transponder chip to be programmed. On the other hand, if you have a 1998 Honda Accord, it is indeed using a transponder chip which requires key programming in order to start.
The transponder chip holds a certain code (once programmed) that will allow your vehicle to start. In most cases when there is a mismatch of information in other words if the transponder has not been programmed to the vehicle, the car computer (ECU – Engine Control Unit) will not recognize the key therefore, it will send information to the fuel pump to stop working or will not let the car to start at all.
If your vehicle is equipped with this chip without getting it programmed, you may turn your ignition but the vehicle will not be operational.

I lost my key and need a new key made and programmed for my vehicle. Will the old key still work if I find it?
That is a great question! And the answer will depend on the year make and model of your vehicle. As an example; in most Ford vehicles we are able to simply add a key to the vehicle, and the old keys will remain operational, and the same will apply to Chevrolet. However, if you are certain that the keys are lost or stolen and you Do Not want them to be able to start your vehicle any longer, chances are that 2 working keys have to be programmed to the vehicle in order for the car to start. On the other hand, for instance a Nissan, Honda or a Toyota, the vehicle’s computer will automatically erase any keys that were previously programmed to the car once a new key was programmed. And if you end up finding the old car key it will no longer start the vehicle unless it is present at the time of making of the new car key.
Can I program a car key myself?
In some makes and models even if all keys are lost you will be able to and some will require you to have 2 working keys to do an on board programming. However most vehicles will require you to have special equipment in order to program a car key.
How much does it cost to have a car key programmed?
The cost for car key programming in Plantation and the surrounding area will depend on the year make and model of your car. For instance, if you hire for car key programming alone, and you bought a new key for your Honda online, and need us to only program it to your vehicle, it will cost between $80-$150. More sophisticated vehicles such as BMW, Mercedes, Volkswagen and such can range from $80-$450 it just depends on the vehicle.
What is the best auto key programmer?
There is no right answer to this question, it all depends on your needs and budget. We normally use a combination of tools sch as : Advanced Diagnostics Smart Pro, Autel IM608, Auto ProPad, VVDI and others.
Can a chip in a key go bad?
Even though it is not common it could happen. Transponder chips can break, if they are saldered to a board there can be a short or just randomly weve seen it happen.
