How to fix a 98' honda accord LX key without remote?

The car just rotates but it won't start. they have told me that its the ignition key that needs to be programed because the car used to have a remote start alarm. when i bought the car the seller gave me a key made at walmart but it worked perfectly, but it's not working anymore.
i found another key but that it's cutted on the ignition key cylinder.

No its not that most likely its faulty ignition circuit but there is no magic fix you'll need to have it troubleshot get an obdII scan from a local repair shop its a sure shot way to find problem if not and you want to save some money on the tow you can purchase a scanner at your local parts store for about the same price as the tow and scan at shop.

My remote transponder key starts the car but does not open the door or lock it remotely even with a new battery.


Remote starts are not a factory option. None do it. Dealers will. But it is all aftermarket. I have taken out hundreds of them. I refuse to install them.

this was a recall on most accords. it is the ignition switch. dont wait to long it is dangerous my mom was having this problem in a 1998 accord and it got worse and started stalling at intersections. But it is a recall. depending on your VIN number they might do it for free. Call honda and verify. How bout a fix ya. good luck i hope you get it done for free. we had to pay :(

Remote starter


The wire under the hood is for the hood pin switch, this wire when grounded will prevent the remote starter from starting, for trouble shooting I would leave this unhooked and make sure it is not touching any metal, also try to remote start your car with the key in the ignition swich if it remote starts you have a transponder issue if not post me and we can go from there
