Car Key Programming Edinburgh

Auto Locksmith Edinburgh is a leader among the car  locksmith companies in the region. This is because they constantly strive to  inform their customers about the inner workings of their cars. Unlike other car  locksmiths companies that encourage ignorance among their customers to satisfy  their pay checks, Auto Locksmiths Edinburgh believes that the relationship  between a car and its owner is a precious one; and as such, needs to flourish  with proper communication and knowledge. For most car owners, their car is  still a mystery to them. It is vital that each car owner understands the basic  characteristics of their vehicles, so that when an emergency occurs, the owner  will not find himself in a difficult position.

One feature that has to be thoroughly understood is how a  car key functions. Car keys serve two purposes: to allow the owner to enter his  or her car and to start the vehicle. This makes it a crucial piece of  equipment. During the earlier days of automation, car manufacturers designed  keys that could possibly be used on several cars of the same make. As there  were very few cars on the road at the time, theft was not considered a high  priority. However, with the rapid increase of technology, and with our  insatiable need for convenience and speed, more and more cars were  manufactured. Naturally, car owners needed a type of key that was uniquely made  for their cars. Earlier models are the standard keys we see today- where the  teeth of each key is filed in a different pattern. Ideally this key would fit  into a specific lock with that pattern. However, either through natural wear  and tear or design, these teeth can be modified, or the lock ruined to allow  another person to gain access to the car. To prevent this from happening, car  manufacturers decided to create a type of key that was more difficult to tamper  with. This began the development of modern transponder car keys that have chips  installed inside them. Each chip is imbedded with a pattern that is connected  to the car’s immobilizer. This pattern is unique to that car and affords the  owner a more secure buffer for his car.

It is still possible though for an owner to require a new  set of keys. In this case, it is of dire importance that you acquire the  services of an expert car locksmith company. This is a delicate process that  must be done in the safest yet gentle manner. This assurance of quality can  only be found at Auto Locksmiths Edinburgh. In order to replace a car key that uses  these transponder chip car keys, a new key has to be made. Then the old memory  of the previous key has to be deleted. This is to prevent anyone else from  gaining access to the car. The new key’s pattern will then be installed within  the memory of the car’s immobilizer. This process of transponder programming  should be done only by specialized personnel. Whilst this three step process  may seem relatively simple, much damage can be made to the car if this is done  by an ill-equipped and poorly-trained car locksmith.
