The Ins and Outs of a Remote Key
The two main parts of a remote key that you need to know about to understand how they work are the controller chip and the transmitter. The controller chip uses a rolling code to generate over a trillion different codes to be able to send over as well as a function code. When you press the button on your fob, the transmitter sends out one of the trillion codes in conjunction with the function code. The receiver, which is in the car, uses the same generator and makes the same code. When they match, the car performs the function that was sent, whether it be locking the doors, unlocking them or opening the trunk. In order for this to work though, the two must be synchronized, which is why if you’re far enough, nothing happens. Should your fob somehow become unsynchronized some car key programming will need to be done, especially if you need a key replacement.
