Call Perth Locksmiths WAWhat a locksmith has to do is keep up with the times.

Locks aren’t what they used to be, so neither are keys, anymore. What all cars manufactured after 1995, use, is a transponder key.

This is a key with a microchip inside it that communicates with the on-board computer that is inside your car. Your car’s ignition will not fire, before it receives the necessary signal from your microchip key.

Transponder keys help prevent theft and keep you and your car secure.

We are one of the few locksmiths to get with the programme

Only a few Locksmiths are qualified to make transponder key duplicates or re-programme a Transponder Keys ignition system – if a new key is to be made.
