The night on the mill came to a close and the last call has already passed, so it's time to hit the road. The designated driver rounds up all responsibilities and head to the car. When everyone reached the vehicle driver realizes that he does not know where the car keys are. The group is trying to retrace their steps from the night with no reward.
The keys were nowhere to be found and it's 3:00 after a little brooding one of the girls in the group suggested calling an emergency auto locksmith. The driver was skeptical at first because he was driving a 2002 Honda Civic that was equipped with a transponder key system.

The driver decided that he might as well try it, so he called the locksmith for some much-needed relief. I arrived in less than thirty minutes to find five ASU despair students. I introduced myself and the possible solutions that I have for them. They were happy to hear that I would have to drive them home in less than an hour.
I began each service to explain what steps I will take, to make the key and get them back on the road. After a brief conversation, I started to lock by, opened the Honda Civic and remove the passenger from the side door panel. After I removed the door panel had access to a key assembly than I manually decode each wafer to get six of eight cuts that were required for the key.
Programming of a transponder car key is a balance between knowledge and equipment. As an automotive locksmith technician is only a capable as his equipment and at the same time the equipment is only as effective as the user is knowledgeable.
