Car key malfunction can happen in one of several ways.
- Jamming of the key in the ignition switch. This occurs in vehicles ignition insertion car keys. Properties of the cuttings/grooves on mechanically or laser cut keys can change. It might be due to physical bending or wearing out of the key. As a result the key will fail to go through the ignition switch. Out of frustration the driver may force it. Jamming of the key will result as a result.
- Breakage of keys might occur inside or outside the vehicle. Inside the vehicle results from jamming of the key in the ignition switch. Out of frustration the driver might break the key while trying to remove or turn the key. Outside the vehicle breakage will occur in all sorts of incidents.
- Failure can also occur with car keys utilizing transponder chip technology. The transponder chip communicates with the vehicle’s onboard computer for verification. Disrupted or erratic communication of the two devices will result to malfunctioned car keys. Reasons of such failures include faulty ECU/PCM (onboard computer), faulty transponder chip or faulty software. Autolox experts are technically capable to solve all these issues.
Car keys battery replacement
Not every car key malfunction is overly technical. As with any battery operated electronic device, there will always come that point when the batteries have to be replaced. Keys with drained out batteries might work inconsistently or not work at all. Autolox technicians will check the batteries first before testing transponder issues.
