What are transponder keys
A transponder is an electronic chip, transmitter-receiver, with a permanent memory which contains an electronic code. Hidden in the head of the key, the transponder communicates with the car’s computer, and when it receives the proper code, it allows the vehicle to start.

Although the transponder is located in the car key, it communicates with the car’s computer, known as an electronic control unit (ECU). Unless the two units send and receive the same code, the vehicle will not start, even if the proper mechanical cuts have been made on the key
