Also question is, what does non transponder key mean?
Transponder keys are similar tonon-transponder key in that they both use a metalkey blade that needs to be cut in a unique sequence in orderto fit the ignition. The difference between transponder keyand non-transponder key is hidden inside the plasticcap of the transponder keys.
Secondly, how does a transponder car key work? There is an induction coil mounted around the ignitionlock. This generates an electromagnetic field when a key isinserted into the ignition and turned. The windings in thekey absorb that energy and use it to power thetransponder chip which then emits the code signal to theECU.

When a car key is called a transponderkey, that means there is a chip (a transponder)in the plastic top of the key which sends and receives asignal from the cars computer, and allows the ignition to be turnedon, ONLY if the transponder matches the car.
