When buying a vehicle – check for the vehicle having a transponder key – is there a spare?

Even though getting a spare is very expensive it is far cheaper to have a spare than to lose the key and have a whole new key made up afterhours!

What are transponder keys?

These are keys that have a computer chip in the key head that talks to the vehicle on start up. Without the right computer chip the car will not start.

Examples of cars that have Transponder keys are:

-          Toyota Prado NZ Model 2000

-          Holden Commodore 1994 onwards

-          Ford Transit 1994 onwards

Always check you key and ignition for wear and tear. Worn keys and barrels will eventually stop working.

Be a wear of the battery life in your vehicle remote.

Check large headed keys for bending at the base. Get a new key cut before it snaps in the ignition or barrel. Always have a spare key in wallet or hand bag.

Keys that tend to bend in our experience are:

Mazda 20R keys

Early Nissan Model keys

If your vehicle has been broken into – often keys/repairs/barrels are covered by insurance.

If it is your barrel or ignition that is damage we can provide new barrel and ignition and have the new barrels and ignition keyed alike.

For insurance all we need is the policy number, claim number, name of insurance company and leave the rest up to us:
