V-chip in Honda key?

I recently lost my only key to my fit, and I ordered some keys offline for way way cheaper than what the dealer would cost me... and I was wondering if they will actually work. They have the v-chip inside, and I don't know what that means I can't find any info on it at all. The keys have a money back guarantee, but I don't want to spend money to have the keys cut and programmed if they aren't going to work because then I will still lose out.

The keys are "chip" transponder keys that send out a signal to the control module that tell the system the right key is inserted and let it start. In order to make the system work with new keys you must have at least one working key, which you say you lost, you have no choice here but to seek out help from a dealer or a local locksmith that has the correct electronic scanner to set things up. I also think you will need to buy a new security module (due to the fact you have no working key), that is a big dollar item.

it would be cheaper to have a locksmith make a key to fit your old ignition lock. I dont know why you didnt do that, before ordering a lock cylinder. Nothing on a MB is cheap. the key is the cheapest thing there is.

Hello ! i have a big problem ..i lost my key of my car honda accord 2003 ....i think in database of all keys produced by honda must be the foto or some info about my key ..can u help me???.....thank you

there is a chip inside your key,unless you have that chip type key,the car will not can get one from dealership for about $75.00 you will need to take the vin# with you and registration of the car with you to dealer. a regular key will not work. have you looked in the glove box for a valet key? if you have one you can only drive the car for about 15minutes and then it will shut down. suggest you call honda dealer with all your information on the car for price. check other dealerships also. one dealer may be cheaper than the other.sorry for your trouble. thank you for choosing please rate my solution if i've assisted you. thanks

Lost keys... cheaper to replace ignition than to order keys... cant remove tumbler assymbly.. 98 honda civic

It might pay you to call a locksmith. Good ones know how to get into cars and they usually know how to get the codes needed to cut you a new key. That might cost you about $15 depending versus all the hassle for you.

Dealer cut a new key for Pilot but it won't work

If the key fits mechanically, and the lock turns, then the key has been cut correctly. However if it just won't start the vehicle, then the transponder chip within the key will need programming. The dealer should have the equipment to do this. Do not accept a key that does not start the car - and certainly don't pay unless it does.

Lost my key to my honda accord 2002; any idea how to get a new one asap?

Call the dealer where you purchased the vehicle. They key a record of the key codes on file. Once you have the code, you can get one made. If it is a key with a security chip, there is a relearn process you will have to go through in order for the car to start.
Good luck.
