Transponder keys contain a microchip that must be near the ignition column or the vehicle will not start.

Spotting one of these keys is fairly simple. With a transponder key the plastic around the base of the key will be more dense and weigh quite a bit more than a key would without one.

However, any key could be a transponder key. Oftentimes, just looking up your make and model of key will provide this information as well. 

These are usually transponder keys. Also commonly referred to as "chip keys". 

Over time, any key will simply stop working. As soon as you start to lose the shape of the key, this could cause some serious issues.

Think of this, over time your key has been ground against the tumblers inside of the locks and smashed into your pocket. That's just before factoring in any actual damage. Oh what a world to see, the life of a key and all the places it has traveled. 

Overall, just general wear and tear is the underlining issue that causes a key to need replaced. 

On average these keys can cost anywhere from $120-$300 but please do call for a direct quote.
