Locksmiths have transponder detectors that read if a transponder is active within a key. The device we have is called "TD3AII Transponder Detector" by Ilco.

What car keys have chips in them?

Transponder Keys - have a chip inside the handle of the key, which also often features remote control buttons for locks & trunk access. "Remote keys" and "switchblade keys" are two types of transponder keys.Smart Keys/ FOBIK Keys - an all-in-one car remote & key, usually standard with push-button start & "keyless entry" carsVATS Keys - for older model GM vehicles have been called "chip keys" because of the resistor on the key blade. The resistor looks like a "chip," but in fact is not a computer chip at all.


Does a 2004 silverado key have a chip?

I believe it has what's called passkey 3. There is a transponder embedded in the key head. There is an exciter ring / theft deterrent module mounted around the lock cylinder. When key is inserted, transponder emits proper code to exciter ring which in turn sends a class 2 serial data message to the powertrain control module to allow fuel and ignition operation.

Can a transponder key ignition on a 99 explorer be changed to a non transponder ignition?

This is not for the rule abiding, uptight individual, so as far as the rest of the world goes.. if you have one key to your transponder key vehicle. Simply take the key hide it under your dash on the driver side in any fashion you feel comfortable with, but, of course, have a key cut that matches it(regular key) your computer will pick up the transponder under the dash and the $3 key will start it. Your other question will be "can people still my car now" yes, they can... will they.. NO, probably not. The reason for that is, that thieves know what they are stealing. they know your car has a transponder on it and won't even try.. they will move on to the next car. Can you bypass the transponder? NO. once again.. a thief knows this...

Will the transponder key keep a 99 Jeep Laredo from starting?

Normally it would only cause a problem if the transponder key had severe damage or trying to start the car without the transponder. If the key looks ok and there's no damage to the sstem then it's probably not the transponder system causing the problem. The dealership could figure this out.


How do you program my transponder key?

I don't program your transponder key. Try taking it back to a garage of the same type as your car e.g ford and they may be able to provide some help.
