Types of Chrysler Car Keys
When it comes to Chrysler key replacement, it is vital to know the various types of keys and their differences. With that said, there are two main types of Chrysler car keys: transponder key and non-transponder chip keys.
For transponder keys, the chip key must be coded for it to function while non-transponder keys, on the other hand, don’t need to code the chip keys.

How Do I Replace A Chrysler Car Key?
If you lose your Chrysler keys, in most cases, you may also be forced to change your ignition system apart from replacing the keys, among other things. If you use transponder keys and lose one, you need to replace it immediately. The old transponder key is useless after the new code has been activated to the replaced transponder key. Meaning, it won’t work if someone will use it to intrude your car.
Transponder keys and remote keys are known as key fobs or push-to-start keys. As mentioned above, they have to be programmed as per your Chrysler model. You may choose DIY at home but it is not a good idea as you may get some things wrong and mess it up.
Whether you tow your car to a Chrysler dealership or a locksmith company, the procedure for replacing the lost car key is the same. In most cases, they will need access to your car information, after which they will cut the key then program it as per your car model.
