Key programming and codes

Electronic keys are highly convenient as they provide protection against thieves. Modern car keys act as tiny radio transmitters. The key transmits a code to a receiver in your car that unlocks the doors upon receiving the correct code.

The code is based on the chassis number (the last 6 digits of your vehicle’s identification number) from your car’s registration document or log book. You may need to provide this information when receiving a key programming and codes repair to prove that you are the true owner of the vehicle.

The transmitter (key) and the receiver (car) must be synchronised in order to function correctly.

Electronic car keys all have transponder chips, and the car will not start if the transponder chip is lost and broken.



Trained locksmiths can solve these key related issues:

  • Programme a replacement transponder key if yours is lost or broken
  • Repair key fobs
  • Lost your key fob
  • Transponder chip inside the car key remote being broken or damaged


Keys that will generally require reprogramming include:

  • Car keys with transponder chips built in (car models post 1995)
  • Flip type keys
  • Car keys with a remote fob
  • Key cards

Auto locksmiths are also well equipped to diagnose and repair a range of immobiliser and ECU system related faults with the use of programming equipment.



How long does it take to program a key to your car?

The programming process can take just minutes, especially when cloning a key. However, different car manufacturers have different systems for programming keys, with some needing proprietary software. A diagnostic machine may be needed in order to complete the programming process or to even gain access into the vehicle.



Can a key fob be programmed for use in another car?

This is completely dependent on the car model and year it was made, but in many cases yes it can.

However, many modern cars have their transponder integrated into the remote fob’s circuit board. Therefore, they cannot be programmed for another car or indeed reused at all.
