Its surely just the metal key end that meshes with the tumblers and recognises the right key for the right lock. So, with my blank key cut to match my existing key it should start the ignition. or unlock the car if put in the Drivers door. Correct me on this point please Mr Locksmith?

Funny old site this.
Button on the key unlocks the car and /or talks to immobaliser, depending on year and model.
put key into ign and turn to position 1, transponder in key shakes hands with ecu ect.. ect.. car starts.
just a blade will unlock car but not talk to the anti theft systems on the car.
whats the average age on here. As said earlier by not sure who. You do not have to go to dealer for keys (as others can also generate keys even if all are lost) and simpsons are usually dearer and have less experiance than locksmiths.
