Need brake five digit brake code to start my car. Its a 2001 2.3 accord


Only from a Honda dealer by the look of it as they are VIN number specific.

To start the engine without a programmed ignition key,
you need these items:
• Immobilizer key blank (master or valet)
(Refer to the parts catalog for the P/N, and search by
VIN for the correct blanks.)
• Key code for the vehicle
• Suitable key cutter
• Immobilizer Brake Code (This code is available on
the iN Immobilizer Code Inquiry.)

Immoboliser of city dont work


First of all you need to programm all ignition keys using suitable diagnostic equipment (VAS, VAG-Com) connected to the data link connector of the car.

You have an electronic immobilizer key recognition problem. Now your key chip is not recognized by the transponder antenna fitted on the ignition switch barrel.

  • Everytime when you had a new key you must programm all available ignition car keys before trying to start the engine with this new key !!!

  • You have an electronic immobilizer key recognition problem. Your key chip is not recognized by the transponder antenna fitted on the ignition switch barrel. Do you have this warning symbol lightning on the dashboard?

    This warning lamp indicates that the engine is locked by the immobilizer system, and the engine start sequence must be repeat again.

    From year 1995 in Audi-VW (VAG) cars is used engine immobilizer. The VAG group immobilizer system consists of an immobilizer ECU which controls the recognition of keys and the Engine Management ECU system. Immobilizer is activated when the ignition key is removed and, together with the engine control unit, largely prevents unauthorized starting of the engine. The system uses a transmitter and receiver unit in the ignition key (transponder). Whenever an attempt is made to start the engine, it transmits a new code to the car's electronics. The immobilizing is only cancelled and car motor electronic receives permission to start engine if the key sends a right authorization code.

    Use another ignition key that you have, and start the engine.

    I had a new key cut for my 2004 accord and replaced the keyless entry pad. The car will not start...does the pad need reprogramed to start the car


    If you car has the immobilizer system, the following might help.

    The Immobilizer System protects your car from theft. A properly coded ignition key must be used in the ignition switch for the engine to start. If an improperly-coded key (or other device) is used, the engine’s fuel system is disabled.
    When you turn the ignition switch to ON (II), the Immobilizer System indicator should come on for a few seconds, then go out. If the indicator starts to blink, it means the system does not recognize the coding of the key.
    Turn the ignition switch to LOCK (0), remove the key, reinsert it, and turn the switch to ON (II) again.

    Hope this is helpful to you.

    The key symbol appears


    That's your immobilizer system light:
    The Immobilizer System protects your car from theft. A properly coded master or valet key must be used in the ignition switch for the engine to start.
    If an improperly coded key (or other device) is used, the engine’s fuel system is disabled.
    When you turn the ignition switch to ON (II), the Immobilizer System indicator should come on for a few seconds, then go out. If the indicator starts to blink, it means the system does not recognize the coding of the key. Turn the ignition switch to LOCK (0), remove the key, reinsert it, and turn the switch to ON (II) again.
    The system may not recognize your key’s coding if another immobilizer key or other metal object is near the ignition switch when you insert the key. To make sure the system recognizes the key code:
    Do not keep other immobilizer keys on the same key ring.
    Use a plastic or leather key fob, not metal.
    Keep other keys away from your vehicle’s key and the ignition switch while trying to start the engine.
    Do not attempt to alter this system or add other devices to it. Electrical problems could result that may make your car undriveable.
    This indicator will also blink several times when you turn the ignition switch from ON (II) to ACCESSORY (I) or LOCK (0).
    If the system repeatedly does not recognize the coding of your key, contact your Honda dealer.
    If you have lost your key and you cannot start the engine, contact your Honda dealer.
    Hope this lets you understand the light, and what should be happening.

    I have green key flashing on dashboard but wont start


    Check Fuse #9 under the hood its for DLC Power and Immobilizer System (10 Amp).

    Look at the TDC wire harness. Sometimes the wire isnt put back in the holder on the rear edge of the timing cover. Then the harness gets sawed in half by the alternator belt.

    Other Honda user had this problem on his 2005 Accord, after letting it sit battery disconnected for 20 minutes it was just fine. Inmobilizer for the lose.

    My guess is your immobilizer kicked in because your battery in your key is dead.

    So, I dont warranted if this process work...
    Here is a better understanding of how a immobilizer works; each key has a code imprinted on it, no battery of any type just a random code. When you go to start the car the immobilizer computer sends a signal to the key. If the signal it receives back from the key matches one of the 5 keys it keeps in its memory, it sends a "OK start" message to the PCM starting the car. If it doesn't see the "OK start" signal it doesn't start and the green key light in the dash flashes. In short there is no way to reset it.

    Try another key. If not, there is a way to bypass it shortly to get the car to a Honda dealership for reprogramming of a key or key replacement. Your Prelude may also have a problem with one of these components. It will need to be hooked up to a Honda scan tool and checked for immobilizer codes.Let me know if you have any questions. I'm a 6 year factory Honda tec.

    I will try and answer all I can.Here is how to use the "pcm brake code" You weill need to call your local dealership and give them you vin # to get the code.To start the engine, follow this procedure:
    1. Cut a temporary key using the key code and anon-transponder key blank.
    2. Turn the ignition switch ON (II) with thetemporary key.
    3. Enter the first digit of the immobilizer brake codeby pressing and releasing the e-brake pedal the samenumber of times as the digit. For example, if thefirst digit is 4, press and release the e-brake pedal 4 times.
    4. Turn the ignition switch to Lock (0) and then backON (II).
    5. Repeat steps 3 and 4 to enter the second, third,fourth, and fifth digits of the code. You have up to30 seconds to enter each digit.
    6. After you enter the fifth digit, the immobilizerindicator on the dash will blink five times,meaning you can now start the engine with thetemporary key.While the engine is running, the immobilizerindicator will stay on. If the engine isn't started with in 10 minutes, you'll have to reenter theimmobilizer brake code. You'll also have to reenterthe code if the engine is shut off for more than 10 minutes.This also workes for any Honda immobilizer system. However you need to use the brake pedal. Only preludes you used the e-brake.

    Good luck.

    Once the dealer hooks up their computer and activates the ignition you shouldn't need to go back, The code that you were given is usually just a temp code to get you to the dealer.
