About transponder chips, car keys and remote fobs
Every time you try to use a car key or remote fob with your car, the car’s electronic system checks to see whether it recognizes the key or fob. This is done by means of a small electronic transponder chip embedded within the key or fob. When that transponder chip is correctly programmed to bond with your vehicle specifically, the electronic system recognizes it, the immobiliser unit unlocks and you can switch the vehicle on as normal.
If for some reason the transponder chip in the key or fob is not programmed for that vehicle — as might be the case with a brand new car key or remote fob, or with an unauthorised copy — the immobiliser unit will not unlock and there is nothing you can do to switch the engine on.
This is great for security, but it also means that if you need to replace your remote fob or car key, you will need a competent car key and remote fob replacement specialist who can programme the transponder chip in your replacement car key or remote fob correctly to your car.

How a CarKeyAdvice.com approved specialist will replace your car key or programme your remote fob in Lincoln
After booking the job through CarKeyAdvice.com, we will send you an auto locksmith who can reach you on location quickly in Lincoln and who also happens to be an expert in your specific car model.
The technician’s first task will be to open your locked vehicle. Don’t worry if you are completely locked out or have no spare keys, original documents or security codes: all CarKeyAdvice.com approved specialists are thoroughly trained to open locked vehicles of any kind using the most modern, fast and non-invasive techniques.
Having gained access to the inside of your vehicle, the specialist’s next task will be the extraction of the electronic immobiliser data from your car’s system. This is basically simple electronic information, and its extraction is similar to copying a simple electronic file from one computer to another.
If you need a replacement car key, the auto locksmith will cut a new key blade using his laser equipment; if you need a new remote fob, you will be supplied one that will work just like the original. He will then use the electronic immobiliser data extracted in the previous step to authorise your replacement car key or remote fob for your vehicle specifically.
After checking that everything is working correctly, your remote fob or car key has been successfully replaced and you can drive your vehicle away.
Meet a CarKeyAdvice.com approved auto locksmith in Lincoln
Clive Jillings, 41, of Nettleham, talks to us about his work as a CarKeyAdvice.com approved auto locksmith in Lincoln:
“I have been replacing car keys and remote fobs for over eight years, which means that, at a conservative guess, I have unlocked cars and replaced car keys and remote fobs for several thousand customers!
“The majority of my customers lost their car keys and are completely locked out of the vehicle, which is parked somewhere. It is therefore imperative from their point of view that I reach them as quickly as possible on location.
“I drive around the Lincoln area with my van, which I also use to carry all the dealer-standard equipment I need to replace car keys and remote fobs. I use special CarKeyAdvice.com approved techniques to open locked cars in a matter of minutes in the most non-invasive way — customers tend to be very pleased with the speed and smoothness of the operation! I then proceeded to extract the electronic immobiliser data from the car’s system — exactly how I do this depends on the specific car model. It can be as simple as plugging a special tool in a socket, or it can be considerably more involved, but in over eight years of doing this, I have never failed to obtain the electronic information I need!
“After cutting a new key blade with my laser equipment or supplying a new remote fob of the correct model, I use the electronic immobiliser data to programme the transponder chip in the key or fob using my dealer-standard diagnostic equipment. This establishes an unequivocal electronic bond between the key or fob and the customer’s vehicle, and enables the key or fob to be recognized as authorised.
“I really enjoy the considerable variety of different people I meet every day, which is an interesting contrast to the sometimes intensely electronic nature of the job. There is a lot of driving around and it’s always incredibly busy, but after eight years I can safely say that I enjoy my occupation and would not want to be doing anything else!”
