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...

On a 1998 Ford Explorer : Yes ( as long as none of the key cylinders has been changed )


dealer it,s a coded key works with a transponder in system


1998 Explorer uses a PATS II system with a transponder in the keyhead.


the plastic cover on a key with an immobilizer is softer and larger than one without. if you have no key to compare, look on the dash with the key not in the ignition. if there is a red light in the shape of a car with a key shape on it that flashes every 2 seconds or so, it has a transponder. when you put the key in the ignition the light turns off.


You need a transponder key in the ignition switch, not under the dash. The sensor is located near the ignition switch and it has a very short range of sensitivity.


Do you have the original ignition key?? Tape the old ignition key to the cowling around the ignition, then put new key in the ignition and see if it will run. The reason for this is there is a transponder chip in the old key that needs to be picked up by the rim module around the ignition barrel. If it works, take keys apart and swap transponder chip . Hope this helps


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.


The only way to use a standard key on the 2000 Ford Focus, would include leaving the transponder key taped or fastened to the ignition or steering column. Then, a standard key will start the vehicle.?æ


Should work 1999-2006 Pontiac Montana. To create spare key: 1) Place alread programmed key into ignition. Cycle ignition from OFF - ON(RUN) - OFF. 2) Within 15 seconds, insert the new transponder key in the ignition. 3) Turn the key to ON(RUN) or START. 4) The theft "Security" light will go on then off. Turn key to "OFF" position. 5) The key will now start the vehicle.


check the starter what year is it , if the key has a transponder chip and you are using a dup made at a wallamrt it won't work.


If you have one transponder key take it to a hardware store or Lowes / Homedepot and tell them "you want a key just to get in the door". Take the transponder key and duck tape or some other means of your choice right under the key ignition switch. The plain key will work now as the module inside the column is reading the signal from your taped key. I did this to my daughters car as it only came with one key and it works great. Saves you about $200.00. Good luck!


Your 2001 Ford Explorer uses a key that has chip in it called a transponder (as you know). This chip has a mathematical formula that is used to answer a numeric question that your car generates. If the answer is correct the car's computer allows you to start the car. (A Simple Example: what is 5 multiplied by X?) The transponder and car both know that X = 2 so the chip responds with the answer 20, and the car, knowing the answer is correct, starts. This all happens in about a tenth of a second. There is also about a billion possible answers to the cars question, so if you use the wrong key, it will give the wrong answer, and the car will not start. So, to answer your question: If the key turns in the door and the ignition that it is working mechanically, but the transponder part is broken. If the key does not turn in the lock, the mechanical part of the key (the cuts on the key or the wafers in the lock) are not working properly. Either way, a Locksmith in your area should be able to help you out.


The dealership can generally program a new transponder key based on the VIN. Most good locksmiths can reproduce the key, but would need the original to do so.


Jaguar didn't use transponder keys until 1998 on the XJ & XKs. After 1998, all Jaguars use a transponder key.


Yes. If you have a grey key, it has a transponder that electrically reads a chip in the key. You essentially have two locks -- one mechanical and one electrical. They both have to work to start the car. Should you go and have a generic key cut that fits the ignition, even thought the mechanical lock cylinder will turn -- the transponder won't allow the engine to fire. Any quality locksmith can program the car's transponder to match the electronic code of the key.


all cars start of with matching locks/ignition and key so the ignition or locks must have been changed


My 1995 Explorer owner's manual states to have the ignition key in the off position


A Toyota Matrix transponder key is factory programed. At times this programing can fail. It is a quick process for the dealership to reprogram the key. A lost key and transponder will cost approximately $100 to replace depending on model.


The circuitry for the door lock/unlock may go bad, but the transponder won't be affected. Meaning, you may have to manually open the door lock using the emergency key, but the Key fob can still be used to turn on the ignition. The transponder is a passive RFID chip that gets "queried" when the ignition is engaged. This is the same type of technology used on pets for tracking pets.


Yes, If you look where the blade meets the key on one side there is a circle, the chip sits behind this plug. the transponder chip is a long glass cylinder inside the key.


the transponder is in the head of the key ther are about 5-7 parts that are conected on the car that control the key and the reading / from a loccksmith


If you are speaking of a key for a recent model vehicle ( 97 model or newer ), the so-called "code" you are speaking of stands for PLASTIC TRANSPONDER. Some keys will have PHT written on the key in the same fashion.....meaning PLASTIC-HEAD TRANSPONDER. Of course, the PLASTIC (P) or PLASTIC-HEAD (PH) refers to the upper ergonomic portion of the key. The TRANSPONDER (T) stands for the programmable "chip" inside of the key, which leaves your vehicle immobilized if NOT programmed or NOT present at the time of ignition.

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.


Depends on Model. Older Transponders: The hole in the black plastic head sometimes. If it has a transponder the hole is offset to one side and thick plastic. Non transponder usually has a thinner black head with hole in center top of key. Most 2003+ Fords are transponder EXCEPT 2005 Ranger & Super Duty Models. Some key manufacturers have application guides for free on their websites. ILCO, Strattec, and JMA are a few manufacturers.
