Smart keys are becoming more and more common, but they aren’t stopping the phone from ringing at our auto locksmith shop in Manhattan KS. Smart keys used to be solely for luxury brands, but more automakers are installing these transponder keys in order to eliminate the need to have a key to start or unlock your key. These keys simply need to be in your pocket in order for the car to unlock or start.

But with the increasing number of smart keys on the market, the number of people locking themselves out of their cars hasn’t dropped. AAA reports that numbers have remained steady for reported lock-outs in the last few years, and they don’t expect them to start dropping anytime soon. If you are a smart key owner, you know that the system isn’t infallible. You may lock your transponder in your car, drop it while you are out shopping, or these smart keys can suddenly lose their ability to work. Just because your smart key isn’t working doesn’t mean you are left out in the cold.
