This type of key is a transponder key, mostly used for Honda models made AFTER 2002.

 

Type of key: Transponder Chip Key.

Key blank (for online purchase): HO01-PT

 

Where can I get a new car key made?

Generally speaking, you have three options:

  1. First, call an automotive locksmith – Most chances that would be your best choice as this type of key needs to be programmed to car’s computer. Hence, the car must be present. That means you either call a locksmith who offer a mobile service or tow the car to the dealer.
  2. Order the key online – You can order a key blank online and then call a locksmith to cut and program it for you.
  3. Dealer – The dealer should be able to make you a replacement key. However, you must tow the car there as this type of key needs to be programmed.

 

Can I order the key online and will it need to be programmed to start the car?

This type of key is a transponder chip key and therefore programming is needed. In addition, special equipment is needed so you will either should call a locksmith or tow the car to the dealer.

 

How much does it usually cost?

We called dealers and locksmiths companies in three different cities and below is the average price for a replacement key(when available)

 

Dealer:

The dealer should have the key code on file – Usually about $165.

Please keep in mind that this price DOES NOT include the price of towing the car to the dealer, which will result in a higher cost.

Automotive locksmith:

On site, mobile service – Usually $215 for parts and labor, including programming.

Key only online:

(Uncut or programmed): About $15

 

I already have a working key. Can I get a duplicate made at the hardware store/locksmith shop/dealership and will it start the car?

Hardware store:

No. This type of key is a transponder key and therefore you will need to have the key programmed to start the car, which requires a special machine that hardware stores don’t usually carry.

 

Locksmith shop or dealer:

Yes. You have two options:

  1. Programming an additional key WHEN THE CAR IS PRESENT – You can drive the car to a locksmith or the dealer and they will program an additional key to the car.
  2. Cloning a new key – This type of process called cloning is basically making a duplicate WITHOUT THE NEED OF THE HAVING CAR ON SITE. To make a duplicate of a transponder key / remote the locksmith should have a special machine. Moreover, a working key that can start the car must be available.

 

 

In this case, when you do have a working key and just need a duplicate, the dealer would be your best and cheapest option.

 

Is programming needed for this type key?

Yes. This type of key is a transponder chip key and therefore programming is needed.

 

What should I tell the locksmith or dealer when I call for service?

First, make sure you have the exact year, make and model. e.g. 2003 Honda Civic / Hybrid.

In addition, write down the VIN (Vehicle Identification Number) of the car located at the left side of the dashboard near the mirror. That would help the locksmith or dealer verifying the year, make and model of the car.

Finally, make sure you can show ownership of the car by having the necessary documents. The title, ID, insurance card etc.
