We are able to program your vehicle keys even if they are lost, stolen or even you just want to add a key.
Since approximately 1995 vehicle manufacturers have increased the security of their vehicles by the introduction of transponder vehicle keys. This involves the inclusion of a small transponder chip placed in the ignition keys. When the keys are presented to the ignition switch the transponder communicates with an aerial around the ignition switch and identifies it as the correct key for the vehicle. If the correct key is presented the vehicle immobiliser system communicates with the vehicle ECU (electronic control unit) and allows the vehicle engine to be started.
The inclusion of transponders into vehicle keys means that whenever a new key is required the new keys require programming into the vehicle ECU memory. Most vehicles require any additional key to be programmed using a diagnostic tester, Some vehicles have a master key or keys that are required to enable programming to take place, when these master keys are lost or not passed on to the new owner the vehicle requires connecting to a diagnostic device held only by the vehicle manufacturers dealer.
Until now, as we here at Elite Services Centre have invested heavily into this market and have extended our computerised equipment allowing us to program vehicle keys to the vehicles ECU (electronic control unit).
Most vehicles now require a pin code or a pass code to be able to do this; we also can retrieve the pin or pass code on most vehicles including Vauxhall and Volkswagen and Audi vehicles
