There are 2 main types of DS Automobiles key:
Remote keys are one of the most common type of vehicle key in use. The key has a traditional shaft that has to be inserted into the ignition to start the vehicle and the “head” (the part of the key you hold), contains a transponder chip. which communicates with the security system to allow the car to start. The key fob has remote control buttons that allow you to lock and unlock the doors without having to physically insert the key into the door lock.
Smart car keys, sometimes referred to as Proximity Keys, are one of the latest types of car keys to be utilised by vehicle manufacturers. Smart keys are detected by your vehicle when you’re nearby and unlock the doors. This type of key also allows users to start their cars with a press of a button. While driving, these car keys do not need to be inserted into the ignition.
