As the years have passed and security technology has advanced, the car ignition mechanism has greatly evolved. Traditionally, an ignition is a kind of tumbler lock which uses a number of pins in varying configurations to immobilize the inner cylinder. The ignition key is inserted and aligns the pins along the shear line, allowing the inner cylinder to rotate and start the engine.
In the past couple of decades, ignition keys have changed from this traditional lock mechanism to varying forms boasting increased security. Ignition keys can be sidewinder or laser cut keys, which require that a groove be carved out of the side of the key with a special tool. In recent years, nearly all vehicle manufacturers have made the transition to transponder key security systems.
Transponder keys, smart keys, chip keys—there are many names for the keys that now control passive and active security systems in vehicles. In a vehicle with such a system, the entire engine can be immobilized if the transponder chip is missing.
In many of the newest vehicles, there isn’t even an ignition since the computer chip simply syncs with the vehicle and starts the car at the touch of a button. Dealing with these much more complex ignition transponder keys requires the proper tools and software to carefully reprogram a key with the proper code or reprogram a car to accept the code of a new key.
