Auto Locksmith Car Computer Reflash Services
Even up to the mid-1990s, most vehicles on the road had simple security measures that operate extremely similar to the way that you would see a residential or commercial lock function. However as criminals began to steal more and more vehicles, car manufacturers had to turn to newer technology to help beef up automotive security. One of the biggest innovations was placing a computer inside of the vehicle that had to communicate with a fob or transponder car key. To make these vehicles even more secure, in order to add a new car key to the vehicle’s system a car computer reflash must be completed. This allows for the technician who is working on the vehicle to add a new car key to the computer’s system, while removing the old car key from the same system. Due to the fact that car computer reflash is generally completed on new model vehicles with high security functions, the labor charge for a car computer reflash is much greater than that of a standard replacement car key. Some of the vehicles which must have a car computer reflash completed in order for a replacement car key to be include: Lexus and Toyota model years 97-2003, some Saab and BMW models, in addition to many others.
