Even with the reprogrammed key's the engine would crank, it might not start but it would crank over so that leave's only one thing, your used ignition switch is bad.

SOURCE: I have a 2003 civic Honda .engine cranking but

I would check your firing order, and all the stuff with the distributor, no loose connections and stuff, check the condition of all your plugs, make sure they are gapped correctly, check everything, maybe your injectors are clogged or broken? (unlikely but still check it out) then at last check for compression. All you need is fuel, spark and compression to fire. Check all cylinders to make sure they are ok on everything.

Get your tools (for removing a spark plug) ready. Try to start the engine, pumping the accelerator a little while you crank. Take a spark plug out. Is the spark plug wet with gas (smell fuel)? If so, you are getting fuel. Hook the spark plug you just took out up to the coil, lay it on the engine where it will be grounded to the metal. Get someone to crank the engine, and check for spark at the end of the plug. If there is a good spark, that eliminates another problem (don't crank the engine, or let it run too long with the plug out). If you have spark, and fuel, either the timing is way off (broken, slipped timing belt/chain), or you have no compression (internal engine).

Do you have a "Check Engine" light, or any other warning light on? Recently you make any work there or disconnected the battery? Are you thniking in Theft, Immobilizer or Passlock security alarm? Is this occurrs and the keys isn't work, its need to re-programmed, for this need to visit your Honda dealer.

Keep us updated.

What is the MCU and can it be a factor in my issue?


MCU under steering column,
Honda Part**** 38200-S5A-A31, about $150 bucks online from Honda parts now
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
There's nothing more frustrating than an intermittent problem with something we use as often as our power windows and locks. Sometimes they work fine, other times they don't. And then sometimes they just stop altogether. It's no fun being the guy at the toll booth who's inventing a new yoga move to pass the collector 50 cents through an open door. It could be a bad switch, motor or solenoid that's on its last legs causing your problems. But it could also be electronic leprechauns haunting your electrical system.Lucky for you, there's a simple, quick and clean fix that seems to solve the problem a large percentage of the time. The solution was tested for 6th generation Honda Accords, but will surely work on a number of models since the MCU[/link (an electronic brain that runs stuff) will be designed similarly.
The fix is simple. With the ignition off, set the intermittent wiper control to the middle position, then turn the car on. This resets the brain and gets things back to normal. So ...
  • Ignition switch off.
  • Intermittent wiper set to middle position.
  • Ignition back on.
  • Back in business!

Key reprogramming


The problem is you need to use OE ( original equipment )
Honda made their cars so that you need to buy from them not a wrecker...The ignition feeds to the computer, So using a screw driver will make life worse...The ignition cylinder is similer to what"s in your front door...

2001 honda accord keys were stolen and the thief broke into my car. Do I need to totally rekey or can I just reprogram the transponder and have the doors not work with the old key?


Hello Sophie,

FIRST OFF ...
>> I would ALWAYS choose a LOCKSMITH
over a DEALER regardless of cost (strong opinion).

Very sorry to hear of your violation...
It never feels the same but now you are SAFER with the
knowledge ... you were never actualy safe.

If other than your CAR keys were ALSO taken...
YOU NEED TO FOCUS on those other KEYS
FIRST (particularly house & mail-box)

Truth is...
your car is never ANY safer than the GLASS IN THE Door
(and only we... the owners... care about that GLASS).

Car TRANSPONDER locks are another situation.

If you use a LOCKSMITH it will be cheaper & safer.

I have used eBay to get my new KEY and KEYLESS
entry fobs... AND ... would TRUST a LOCKSMITH worlds
better & longer than I could throw a DEALERSHIP...!!

My niece had her car UNLOCKED and her HIGH-END
sound equipment expertly removed THE NIGHT
following getting her HONDA serviced at
OAKLAND HONDA ...
She nor I FEEL it was a coincidence (opinions)...

Where-as...
LOCKSMITHS trade on their excellent REPUTATION
and do the SAME work for half (or less) the COST.

REMEMBER to ask them the ERASE/OVERWRITE the
old keys & FOBs.

The locksmiths MIGHT know how to RE-KEY your existing cylinders (I think un-necessary)...
Dealers probably (opinon/experience) won't even TRY...

and of course...
NEVER leave anything of value in your car!!

May be keyfob needs reprogramming to make it work line normal.

Keyfob remote reprogramming is not very difficult but on some cases it can be done by dealer service tools.

If the remote s faulty then key fob will not get programmed.

Insert the key in ignition. Turn the key to on position, and cycle the key three times off-on-off-on-off-on. Then with the key fob remote select your remote and then try to operate the vehicle with remote.

These are just the basic procedure, but sometimes it will not help.

On that case dealer is the only option.

Reset maintenance light


If I remember correctly, on the dash you have a select button. Hold the button down then turn the key on, until the maintenance light blinks and goes out. Turn the key off then back on and your light should be out.

What does a flash green key when you go to turn the car on mean? The car won't turn over and is flash this green key


the green key means that the immobilizer that is built into the ignition switch is not reading the key properly try switching keys as far as the car not turning over this green light has nothing to do with it but if the car is turning over and not starting it means that the immob. is not reading the key again try switching keys if this doesnt work then the key or keys have to be reprogramed at a honda dealer if you have to do this make sure you take all of the keys to that car
