At present, the car keys of common models are generally divided into three types: mechanical keys, remote control keys, and chip keys.

If the remote control and the mechanical key are lost together, it is not enough to re-match the remote control. The person who finds the key can also use the mechanical key to open the door.
●Chip key
-At present, many car models have a chip in the car key, which is used as an engine anti-theft. When the key is inserted into the keyhole and turned to the "ON" gear, or the key of a model with keyless start function is in the car, the engine will "communicate" with the key. If the "password" on the chip is consistent with the information stored in the anti-theft system, it can be started engine.
