What is a ChipKey?


ChipKeys or anti-theft auto keys contain a computer “transponder” chip in the head of the key programmed to the vehicle’s security system. Duplicate keys for your vehicle require programming this matching code in order to operate the vehicle. Auto manufacturers began phasing these keys into production vehicles starting in 1995. The vehicle’s anti-theft computer and the programmed chipkey help to curb auto theft and reduce insurance premiums.
