– Newer Dodge Models Are More Complicated the key are equipped with a chip
Newer car models are a bit more complicated to have keys replaced since they are electronic and contain something called a transponder.
A transponder is a chip that is in your car keys that your car looks for when a key is put in the ignition.
If a key is put in the ignition and it does not have the transponder chip that your car is paired with, then the car won’t start.
This is done for security measures to prevent car theft.
These electronic keys require a certain level of expertise and certain equipment to be programmed correctly.
Not all locksmiths have this equipment or knowledge, making it a bit more difficult to replace since you have to find the right locksmith for the job.
