Why are car keys expensive?Immobilisers have been mandatory in all new cars sold in the UK since 1st October 1998, Early models used a static code in the ignition key (or key fob) which was recognised by an RFID loop around the ignition barrel and checked against the vehicle's engine control unit (ECU) for a match. If the code is unrecognised, the ECU will not allow fuel to flow and ignition to take place. Later models use rolling codes or advanced cryptography. The microcircuit inside the key is activated by a small electromagnetic field which induces current to flow inside the key body, which in turn broadcasts a unique binary code which is read by the car's ECU. When the ECU determines that the coded key is both current and valid, the ECU activates the fuel-injection sequence.
Why Does A Key Cost So Much Money?
Reason for the cost is tooling to make a car key Auto Locksmiths spend £1000s on tooling such as lock picks, machinery & programming software just to make a key.
Average Cost On Spare Car Keys
