    Do You Have a Spare Transponder Key? 

    If you lose one transponder key but have another in your cabinet as a spare, you need to get a replacement immediately. You should not delay or switch over to the extra and use it as your primary key. As with a spare available, all you have to do is get a transponder key duplicated.

    Some Automobile Locksmiths can do that for you, and a new key can be made at a lower cost. If you opt to get a new key directly from the source, the dealer can also clone it for you. Things can get a little complex if you don’t have that spare.

    If You Have Lost The Spare Transponder Key

    Sadly, without a spare key to clone, you need to contact your car dealer or manufacturer and ask them to reset the receiver.

    It can be expensive as the chips on the key and the receiver must resemble. So, pairing a new key to the receiver takes much more effort, making it costly.
