When you are locked out of your car, you desperately need the service of a locksmith in Omaha. One of Carl Jarl Locksmiths’ most frequent service calls is auto lockouts or to replace lost car keys. Losing your car keys or getting locked out can be an extremely stressful situation filled with panic and frustration, but it doesn’t always have to be that way. It is important to have locksmith information on hand BEFORE you need it. The overwhelming majority of calls to locksmiths are made under emergency conditions. Customers are often placed in victim-like situations, often late at night, and are easy prey to untrustworthy locksmiths.
Common Types of Automotive Keys If You Get locked Out of Your Car
- Transponder Keys – These car keys contain a computer microchip in its handle that enforces ignition security and prevents key fraud. Transponder keys can be mechanically or laser cut depending on what the make and model of the vehicle is.
- Smart Keys – These car keys use computer microchips as well as sensors to open cars without the use of a traditional key. All that’s necessary is to have the keys on your person and your car will automatically unlock your car and start it as you approach it closely.
A transponder chip disarms a vehicle immobilizer when the car key is used to start the engine. The majority of keys to cars built after 1995 contain transponder chips. When the car key is turned in the ignition, the engine control unit (ECU) on the car sends an electronic message to the key, and it will allow the car to start only provided it receives the correct message back. So, even for a simple car key without any buttons, the key must be cut correctly to turn the locks, and also programmed correctly to disarm the immobilizer. Car keys with chips can be programmed using special programmers.
Transponder keys are different from automotive remotes that are used to unlock and lock your vehicle; some transponder keys are built inside of your keys (in a component called remote key heads) while others are placed separately.
A proximity key is a small fob that allows for a keyless entry and ignition system. The fob communicates via radio waves with your car to lock and unlock doors and start the engine when within the acceptable range.
