Your vehicle comes with two kinds of keys: a master key and a valet key.
The master key fits all the locks on your car:
Ignition
Doors
Trunk
Trunk release handle
Rear seat trunk access

The valet key works only in the ignition and the door locks. You can keep the trunk, trunk release handle and rear seat trunk access locked when you leave your car and valet key at a parking facility.

You should have received a key number plate with your set of keys. You will need this key number if you ever have to get a lost key replaced. Keep the plate stored in a safe place.

When replacing keys, use only Honda-approved key blanks.

There are many hardware stores that have Honda key blanks and can make a key if you have a working one. If not, a Honda dealership can get you a key (expensive) for your vehicle if what is left of your key has the small serial number still on it. Additionally, they might be able to get one based on the VIN number of your car.

Hope this helps you.

2003 silhouette no key.how can i start it without $150 key with chip?


You cant. The anti theft system will not allow the vehicle to start. Most lock smith's are significantly cheaper than dealers. You can order keys very cheap ( $10 or so each) from amazon or ebay and then have your locksmith cut it and program it or change the lock cylinder completely out (new key won't work in the doors though) but the computer will need to be reprogrammed for the new key.

Key fob reprogram


Some locksmiths have the machinery to do this but you will have to shop around for them. The problem is that the new key has to be programmed to the immobiliser in the car so the dealer wants the car and the new key to complete the job.. When you consider that to have the job done on a lot of cars the job costs $25.00 for the key .$25.00 to have the key cut and $450 + to have it programmed I consider $200.00 to be reasonable

I lost my key for an 98 ford explorer and i just got a key made but wont trun the locksmith made a key from the door lock we put it in the ignition but it wont trun


There should be 8 cuts total on the key. While the door and the ignition share some of the same cuts you cannot get all the cuts from one cylinder. I believe that the door cylinder only uses 6 cuts and the ignition cylinder uses 7 cuts. The cut closest to the head of the key is #1 and the cut closest to the tip is #8. If I remember correctly the ignition cylinder uses cuts 1 - 7 and the door cylinder uses cuts 3 - 8.If the locksmith cannot decode the ignition cylinder you can try to contact you local ford dealer and see if they can find a key code and cut a key from that otherwise you may have to replace your ignition cylinder.

How can i disable the immobiliser on my fto. The key fob has broken and it wont let me start the engine :-(


Is the alarm / immobilizer factory or aftermarket? If it's aftermarket you will either have to purchase and program a new key fob or completely remove the system and reconnect which ever cuts were made in the wiring.

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.

Hi I have broken my only key in the ignition this morning Dont know how to fix or costs ,please could you advise.Thanks


hi there if your key has broken in the barrel you might be able to get it out with a strong magnet or a pin if not you will have to take the barrel out and strip it down if its broken at the **** of the key you may only need that peice and take it to timpsons they can cut you a new one. If the key is broken further towards the tip you will need both parts and a key cutter will still be able to cut you a new one hope this was a wee bit of help to you
