Can you fix a ignition that has locked in a 2005 Honda Civic 2 door coupe for cheaper than 500 hundred dollars?


Hello Renee,

The ignition switch for the civic is expensive. Auto Zone shows a new replacement ignition switch for a 2005 Honda Civic DX 1.7L MFI SOHC 4cyl listed at 455.99. This part also fits 21 other 1.7L MFI SOHC 4cyl Civic Models.

If you can find a low mileage Civic at the wreaking yard with the same switch as your model, that would save you money, but of course if one key is currently used for the door and ignition switch... you would have two keys after swapping out the switch. The old one for the door lock and the new (used) one for the ignition.

How to start my 1999 honda civic without key


You can't start this model without the correct key due to the anti theft immobilizer system. Older models (pre96) could be hotwired or a screwdriver to the ignition switch, but not possible on these it newer.

Just replaced the battery with a new purchased-at-dealer Honda OEM battery. The car starts right and within 2-3 seconds it shuts off with the "key" light flashing for the theft deterrent system....


SYSTEM ARMS AFTER SWITCHING IGNITION OFF, SWITCH IGNITION ON, IMMOBOLIZER WARNING LAMP ILLUMINATES FOR A FEW SECONDS,IF IMMOBOLIZER WARNING LAMP ILLUMINATES FOR A FEW SECONDS THEN FLASHES RAPIDLY,KEY CODE NOT RECOGNIZED, REMOVE KEY AND TRY AGAIN,IF THIS PROCEDURE FAILS.THE DEALERSHIP WILL HAVE TO REPROGRAM KEYS AND THE IMMOBOLIZER.

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.

Chrokee engine will not shut when key is turned off and pulled off


there may be an open ground in the ignition circuit. i saw that once in a honda civic and the car would not shut off if anything electric was on.
you may have a bad ignition switch.
just wire a switch to the fuel pump relay and shut it off there,and it makes a good anti theft system

Theft of 2004 Honda Civic


since the ignition key cylinder wasn't damaged, i can think of a few possible sernarios.

- a tow/repo truck was used

- if you bought the car used, the previous owner had a copy of the key and used it to gain access and start the car.

- if you have taken the car to a honda dealership for service/repairs, someone at the dealership may have encoded (the transponder on) a duplicate key. they would also have no problem looking up your address.
