What Is A Remote Head Key?

A remote head key is a type of car key that combines the features of a traditional key with those of a remote keyless entry (RKE) fob. This type of key is commonly used in modern vehicles and can be described as a straight key blade with an attached remote on top. 

Key features of a remote head key include:

  1. Physical Key Blade:

    • Like a traditional key, a remote head key has a straight physical key blade that can be used to manually unlock doors, start the ignition, and operate other locks on the vehicle.
  2. Remote Functions:

    • The key also incorporates remote control functions, allowing the user to lock and unlock the car doors, open the trunk, and sometimes even start the engine remotely. These functions are typically operated by buttons on the key fob.
  3. Integration of Electronic Components:

    • Remote head keys contain electronic components, including a transponder chip, which communicates with the car's immobilizer system. This enhances the security of the vehicle by preventing unauthorized starting.
  4. Programming Requirements:

    • Like other electronic car keys, remote head keys need to be programmed to work with a specific vehicle. This programming process is typically performed by a dealership or a qualified locksmith using specialized equipment.

Remote head keys are commonly used by various car manufacturers, and their design may vary between models. They offer a convenient combination of traditional key functions with the added benefits of remote control features, contributing to the overall ease of use for vehicle owners.
