Question about 2006 Acura TSX
The key and remote for our 2006 Acura TSX were stolen. Can you tell me how to replace these economically? Can I purchase the key and remote online? Do I have to purchase from a dealer? Can I program them myself or does that require dealer involvement? Thanks
Programming is easy, if you know the method of the model you're using. BUT, on the fact that the keys were stolen, I'd take the car to the dealer and have both the receiver and a new transmitter with a new signal frequency. The idea of having your keys out there in someone elses hands is a very bad thing. Many insurance companies will refuse to cover the car if it's stolen in such a way, as it wasn't broken into in any way. I'd definitely buckle down and pay the money to keep total security on your car.
As for the transmitter itself, most likely can only be replaced by a dealer, as each one is specifically coded for the car. Finding a universal to work on just your car may be nearly impossible and probably not worth the hassle of finding for the money you would save.
I hope this helps you out a little, as I said before; I'd just have a dealer refit your car so you won't have to worry about someone else breaking into your car and stealing it with your keys.
