Modern Vehicle Remote Keys

What's the big deal?

A modern vehicle remote key is three things rolled into one:

  1. Mechanical Key Blade
    The flat metal part, to release the steering lock
  2. Coded Electronic Transponder Chip
    Read by the vehicle when the key is inserted into the ignition
  3. Remote Control
    To remotely unlock the doors and disable the alarm

All of this technology has been miniaturised and placed into the small plastic head of your vehicle key and this is why the price tag on a replacement vehicle key is so much more than a household one.

  1. Remote Casing
  2. Circuit Board
  3. Controller Chip
  4. Remote Buttons
  5. Battery
  6. Transponder Chip
  7. Remote Casing
  8. Key Blade
