Transponder Key Programming

Marquis Auto Locksmiths provides a mobile car key programming service. All cars produced and sold in the UK since 1995 are legally required to be fitted with an immobiliser system. These cars require a transponder key with an embedded electronic transponder chip to start the vehicle. When the key is turned in the ignition the code is read and the vehicle will only start if the correct code is received. This system was introduced to reduce vehicle crime and prevent cars from being started without the correct key. A broken or lost transponder car key will result in the vehicle not starting upon turning the key in the ignition. Marquis Auto Locksmiths utilise highly sophisticated key programming equipment, which allows our mobile car locksmith's to program replacement transponder keys for most makes of vehicle at the roadside.
