As the technology in the automobile industry continues to become more and more advanced, the services we need for our vehicles like diagnostics, repairs, and even key replacement, must keep up with these technology advancements as well. With most new vehicles, even ones that are still equipped with traditional key ignitions, they have technology built into the keys that helps in the prevention of automotive theft. In the past when someone needed a new key made to replace a lost key or to have a duplicate key made in case of misplacement, a key cutting machine would just match the cuts and grooves of the original key and that was it. Today, key replacement and key duplication requires much more technology than a simple cut of the metal; instead, they need to be cut to match the car locks and have the correct chip already installed which then has to be programmed to communicate with the vehicle to allow it to be used to unlock and start the car, which are commonly referred to as transponder keys.
