Transponder keys have computer chips hidden inside their plastic heads. When the ignition is turned on, the vehicle sends a signal to the key as a theft deterrent. The car won’t start unless the chip in the key sends back the proper response.
Electronic key fobs attach to key rings and feature buttons that remotely open doors or perform other functions.
Smart keys are electronic devices similar to fobs, only they wirelessly transmit security codes that allow cars to be started without mechanical keys, although some include a manual key for emergencies.
