Key services

Since 1995, almost all new vehicles sold in the UK, had to have some form of immobiliser installed in order to reduce the number of vehicles being stolen. Most immobiliser installed were a transponder-based system, this type of immobiliser system did not involve the person with the key to do anything to either arm or disarm the immobiliser.

The transponder was hidden into the head of the key and was energised by an Ariel mounted around the ignition barrel, which also read the transponder and checked with the car immobiliser system that the transponder was a valid one. If the transponder was recognised by the car the then the immobiliser system was disarmed and allowed the engine to start. Since 1995 the types of immobiliser systems have become more complex and the keys now in come in different forms, but nearly all keys still use a form of transponder.

Transponder key replacement

A lot of car keys today come with a transponder, which uses a microchip embedded within the head of the key, programmed to your vehicle by the manufacturer. The receiver has to detect the correct serial number in order to unlock or start the engine when the driver turns the key. A transponder key is a more cost-efficient alternative to the more expensive remote key. If you would like us to check if you can have a standard transponder key for your vehicle, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Dash Keys

In the last 15 years, manufacturers have made it harder to steal cars. A dash key, also known as a POD key, is popular in Volkswagen, Audi, Landrover and BMW vehicles and are normally pushed into a key reader in the vehicle dashboard to start the vehicle. Eydens auto locksmiths can supply and program new keys to these vehicles and delete any missing keys from the cars immobiliser system. Main dealers often quote long delivery times on their keys, however Eydens Ltd, hold large stocks of Dash style keys making your key replacement a fast and efficient service.

Key cards are regularly used with Renault vehicles and can be easily get broken. Fortunately, Eydens carry large stocks of keycards, which enable a quick response to your lost or spare key requirements. This includes the two main types of key card; the proximity key which allows you to start the engine by pushing the start button as long as it is anywhere in the vehicle, and the non-proximity which is inserted into the card reader in the dashboard of your vehicle before you push the start button.

Proximity keys, smart keys and keyless keys

Proximity and Smart keys are becoming the most popular type of car key. They come with varying functionality; from keys that lock and unlock and start the engine without the need to press a button or put a key in the ignition, to keys that do require the push of a button to lock and unlock your vehicle, but allows the vehicle to start with the press of a button if the key is in the car.
