Hi

It is true the key has a microchip inside which is called a transponder this is how the imobilizer function works, you would need to get the key coded to your car for it to start. in the U.K this can be done by some auto electricians as well as the main dealers but as far as i Know you have to have a working key for this to be done.

Hi, thank for your reply, I don't know if I have any immobilizer on my car, or It is a function embedded in my car?

I wonder how much a Hyundai dealer would charge for a spare key?
