Transponder Key Information
Transponder keys for car have been around since the mid 90s and became standard in most cars from 2000 onwards. There are some exception and still today some car are imported to Australia with no immobiliser system or transponder key setup.
Motorbikes with an engine capacity of 250cc or less generally don't have a transponder key either. Scooters however mostly will depending on the make.
Trucks are hit and miss and it will depend on the year, make and model. Trucks with lost transponder keys can be complex to produce new keys. We always encourage all vehicle uses to have a spare key cut if they are down to their last key. The price for a spare key can be a fraction of the cost of making new keys to car in an all keys lost situation.

Most cars these day have a remote flip key but many of my customers didn't realise that they can just get a non remote key without the remote for there spare key. This is particularly popular amongst surfers as I can often give them a non remote transponder key without buttons so they can take it into the surf with then. Though it's important that a glass transponder chip is used when cloning.
Unfortunately more and more cars require the remote to unlock the car or the alarm will be activated and will continue to alarm if the car is disturbed. Some cars will deactivate the alarm on startup.
The good news is that after-market keys are in abundance for many car and are generally much cheaper than a genuine key from the car dealer.
