Disadvantages of the Dodge chip wrench

The peculiarity of chip keys is the fact that they are contact keys with integrated circuits to the chip. The circuit is powered by a signal transmitted by the vehicle’s computer. So it doesn’t need any battery to work. When the transponder key is inserted into the ignition, the vehicle computer sends a signal to the circuit.

If the circuit does not respond, the vehicle will not start. Most automakers had been using chip technology for years. Today, the advantage of owning your Dodge with a transponder wrench is that it makes car theft very difficult.
