Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Have you guys thought about the security system in
the car or maybe the chip in the key isn't being

3 Answers


That use to happen back in the early 90's but not so much anymore, usually an outside force like a high static charge or a dense magnetic field is the most common cause for a chip to malfunction these days.

What about the security system itself?


They are programmed into the main processor that handles engine management. The average Tech cannot reprogram the processor.
