Question about 2006 Acura TSX

Key and Remote

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.

Keyless remote wont work


Many times if you purchase a used vehicle, the car lot only provides the key because they do not want to spend the money to purchase a key fob. A 2006 Lancer either has a 2 or 3 button keyless entry remote which you can find here: http://replacemyremote.com/

My remote wont lock my car but it unlocks it.. why?


Remote key fobs have a circuit board that, after several years use, can crack or dislodge connections. Our 2007 Saturn just had same issue. Remedied by buying new ones on Ebay, Note: some key fobs can be programmed via instructions online and others MUST be programmed by a locksmith! Good luck and drive safe!

The alarm won't stop going off on Acura 2005, what can stop it?


I had a similar problem and the solution was actually very simple. I opened the car manually (with the key not remote control), then locked it manually with the button on the side of the driver's door. I think that reset the alarm and all was good!

How to fix acura tsx 2008 car remote key. sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't.


I would take it apart and try a new battery. Make sure there is no corrosion on the contacts where the battery sits. If that doesn't fix it time for a new remote. Unless you have a bunch of miles on it it may still be under warranty. See your Acura dealer.

I owned a 2005 TSX. They are great cars!

2009 G6 keys stolen. can i lock out the electronic


You can take a new transponder key(s) (dealer issue for current lockset) and remote(s) (ebay) to the dealer for a complete reprogram. Whomever stole your original will still be able to get in your car, but will not defeat the alarm system nor be able to start the car. The alternative is to replace the locksets as well and nobody has the cash for that.

Car keys and keyless remote FOB programing/matching.


A Locksmith can cut and program keys. You likely did not save anything buying the blank online, locksmiths already have them on hand, and the key itself is not the major part of the fee.

I can not find a model EL, must be strictly Canadian

If this has been helpful, please post a review for City Lock Boulder Colorado USA listing on Google Maps

You may find a locksmith that has been background checked on a link from our website. I am not putting the link here, as it likely is a TOS thing

CAR ALARM DEACTIVATION


if the car only has a factory system, then you only need to insert the key to unlock the door to turn the alarm off. There should be a red light on the door panel that blinks and that should show you it's off, not sure try turning the key on the door twice. If it's aftermarket, get a replacement unit.
