ALL VW group product come with two remotes and one valet key when new.(the valet key does not operate the glovebox/trunk).there is no way of knowing how many keys were cut after delivery.and sometimes the car will not recognise a key because its been dropped/left on top a television etc.they all have a transponder inbuilt,which is coded to the car.and should be recoded at the same time,as the computer only gives a dealer 30 mins to code them.
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:
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.
You should have received a key number plate with your keys when you got the car. You will need this key number in order to get a key replaced. If you need to replace a key, you have to use only Honda-approved key blanks (probably means you will have to get them from Honda). These keys contain electronic circuits that are activated by the
Immobilizer System. They will not work to start the engine if the circuits are damaged.
You should have received 2 master keys (black) and 1 valet key (grey) in addition to the Key Number Plate when you got the car.
I hope this helps you.
Had similar problem when keys accidently locked in trunk.Solved by drilling 1 inch circular cutout (series of small drill holes) behind number plate above lock. Lock operating bar then visible. Lock released using long nosed plyers. Note.. release button on lid failed to operate as by coincidence wiring loom failed where it passes trunk hinge ! Hole re-sealed and number plate replaced. I had vallet key but this dosnt open trunk. Hope this helps Pete
