    Yes, the car was recovered a few blocks from our house, all smashed up. Apparently the ignition key cylinder wasn't damaged. Help!

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.

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.

Honda civic 2004 key will not turn in ignition switch even after moving the wheel for the tires to loosen


First try another key if you have one. Second insert the key and while slightly turning it wiggle the key in a upward & downward motion. Often this will allow the key to turn. What you need to do to correct the problem (provided your key is not the problem) is to replace the ignition switch tumbler. It sounds like you only need the tumbler and not the entire switch which would include the steering wheel lock pin.

I have a 56 plate 1.4 civic and it is pulling to the left!


If the steering saft was broken you woudnt even be able turn at all, without looking at the car, it could be a number of things, cv joint ,wheelbearings, struts, even the rim might be out balance or alignment, stabilizer bar bushing could be worn out, it would be best to take it to honda dealer to confirm the problem, but i dont understand why it would pass MOT with a broken steering shaft!

1993 honda del sol horn does not work. Horn


Im in the same boat with my 99 civic si. it is wiring in the steering wheel that is causing your horn to not work. it is a lot of work to replace the wire in the steering wheel, so if you want a horn, my suggestion is to wire the horn to a aftermarket switch. it is a cheap and easy solution and will get the job done.
