Getting a new car key used to mean a trip to the dealership but not anymore. Did you know Yeagers can now duplicate your vehicle chip keys? Watch Gage demonstrate how it works here.
Chip keys or anti-theft auto keys contain a computer “transponder” chip in the head of the key programmed to the vehicle’s security system. Duplicate keys for your vehicle require programming this matching code in order to operate the vehicle. Car makers began phasing these keys into production starting in 1995.
Finding it out if your vehicle uses a chip key is as easy as bringing your key to your local Yeagers Hardware store and placing it in the key reader. After that, all we need is the year, make and model of your vehicle and we’ll be able to make you a vehicle chip key in just minutes.
Wondering why you need a spare key? If you lose the original without an extra key around, your vehicle will need to be towed to a dealership to reprogram your car’s security computer. Having a spare key on hand could keep you from wasting time and money.
