Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How do I know if my car has a keyless entry system?

A: Do you have any keyless entry remotes?   If you do, or if you have had one before on your car, then you know your car has a keyless entry system installed on it.

Also, you can see our Blog/Post dedicated to this question here:



Q: Do you know why my remote just died?

A: Maybe the battery died.  Check/Change the battery in your remote.  Did you drop it or did it get wet recently?  Car remotes are fragile.  They can break internally easily if dropped.


Q: How do I find out the Year of my car?

A: Look in the driver’s side door jam.  There will be a sticker there with some information about your vehicle there.  Also, if you have the paperwork from when you bought your car, it will have the year of the car on it.  It will also tell you on your insurance card or your registration.  Lastly, you can always have us look up the year, by calling us with your VIN (Vehicle Identification Number).


Q: I am not sure what Model I have?   (Example: EX, LX, SE, Limited, etc.)

A: Look at the paperwork from when you purchased your vehicle.  It should state the Model and trim.  Call the dealer and give them your VIN (Vehicle Identification Number), they will be able to tell you as well.  Look at the back of your car, truck, van or SUV.  Are there letters or numbers on there somewhere?

What is a smart key?

What is a smart key?

Smart keys can go by lots of different names: Keyless Go, Intelligent Key, Smart Access, My Key, Fast Key, and Smart Key.

All of these keys use something called Proximity Technology.  Once you are in close “proximity” of your vehicle, your remote key is automatically activated.  Somewhere on the outside of your vehicle there is a transceiver or sorts that recognizes your key.

There is also a transceiver located inside the car that will allow you to start the car with your “Smart Key”.

Essentially what this means is that you do not need a traditional key to start your vehicle.   You would simply hold the key close or keep it in your pocket or purse and push a start button or turn the start dial on your dash.

If you have a key with a metal part that you put into the steering column and turn to start your car, then you do not have a “smart key” system.

What is key cloning?

What is key cloning?

Cloning a key is a process where a key cutter (hardware store or locksmith) uses a special machine to match the code on your existing/working key to a new one that you are having programmed.  They will basically insert your old (working) key into their special programming (cloning) machine and it will generate the code to cut and program your new key.

This “cloning” type programming method does not always work.  Automotive Manufacturers are getting smarter and are changing the type of transponder chips that are in the keys, making it more difficult to have a key programmed anywhere but at the dealership.

If you still have any questions about transponder chip keys or cloning key blanks please feel free to call us at 866-690-4308 or visit us online at www.carandtruckremotes.com.

What exactly is a transponder key?

What exactly is a transponder key?

These days, most car keys come with a “chip” inside of the head of the key.  This is called a transponder key blank.  The word transponder is short for transmitter/responder.  This transponder chip that is imbedded in the head of your car key keeps the car from being started unless the chip has been programmed.  Some also call the transponder chip a disabler since the chip actually disables the car from being started if it is not programmed.

In order to have these transponder (chip) keys programmed you will need to take the key to your local dealer or to a pro automotive locksmith.   There the professional can “program” your key (transponder chip) to match your car’s ignition code.  Usually you will have to provide the dealer or the locksmith with proof of ownership of the vehicle before they will program and cut your new key.

The important thing to remember with a transponder key is that is not enough just to have it cut you must also have the transponder chip programmed so you can start your car.  If you have the key cut and not programmed it will unlock the car and turn in the ignition, but it will not turn over the ignition start.
