Standard keys are initially thought of having no transponder chip inserted in the key. This isn't always the case as many cars after 1990 have a tiny transponder chip inserted in to the black plastic. This transponder chip is programmed to the immobiliser system inserted by the manufacturer of the car. This was designed to stop the theft of a vehicle, it controls the fuel pump by sending a signal to the ecu as to whether to allow it to switch on or not. The remote part of your car key is designed to unlock your car by the press of a button. Although this does not switch your car immobiliser system on or off it designed just for the simplicity of not having to put your key in the car door lock to gain you access.
As technology progreses everyday this is also put into action with the vehicles of this day and age. Many car manufacturers are now building cars that are eco friendly and run on electricity to improve our pollution . This can only be a good thing as new car'snow have built in satellite navigation and full proximity on the car key. This enables you to leave your car key in your pocket or handbag without having to get it out at any stage of your driving for day to day. The new keys work on electrical puses which can detect when the key and car are close enough to be able to talk to each other and then unlocks your vehicle. Once in the veghicle it then switches the immobiler off when you press the button ton dash board. An electric steering lock then enables you to turn your wheel for steering. When you have finished your journey and you press the stop start button again the cars immobileser comes active again and when you leave the car it will automatically lock when at a safe distance from the vehicle. Many vehicles already use smart keys in some form, whether it be a Mercedes pod key or a key card on a Renault.
