I’m relatively sure that I managed to fry a car key transponder (RFID tag) with a wirefeed welder.
A friend of mine was welding with his harborfreight titanium 125 about 3ft from where my car keys sat and the next day I ended up stranded at a kwik trip station. my ford fusion 2007 was rejecting the only key I had at the time.
