Most cars have keys with transponders hidden inside the plastic head of the key. When a key is inserted into the ignition lock cylinder and turned, the car's computer sends a radio signal to the transponder. Unless the transponder replies with a valid code, the computer will not allow the engine to be started. These are called "Transponder Keys". They have no battery and are are energized by the radio signal itself. If you are not careful this can be a very expensive process, especially if you have a lost car key.
