How do Honda keys work

Most new model Honda vehicles are available with a battery key fob, just like many other manufacturers across the market. Depending on the Honda model, the features available on the key fob will vary. Specific models are equipped with remote engine start; many can open the boot, assign preset seat positions, and roll up or down windows with the touch of a button. These are in addition to the standard ability to unlock and lock your car remotely.

At Tony’s Locksmith, not only are we equipped with a stock of blank key fobs for various Honda models, but we also have the expertise to accurately program or efficiently repair a range of Honda car keys.

We invest heavily in our auto-locksmithing services, meaning we have the correct industry equipment to safely program keys for a range of car makes at a low price. Our key programming and replacement services are far more affordable than ordering through the manufacturer-approved centres.


What services are available for Honda keys

  • Lost key replacement

Misplacing a car key is incredibly easy yet causes a host of problems. For families, working individuals and on-the-go people who are reliant on their vehicle, being without it can be a challenge.

Fortunately, Tony’s Locksmith is on hand to get you back on the road without costing an arm and a leg. Our emergency auto locksmith callout service is fast and efficient, and we’ll come to you. We’ll regain access to your vehicle before programming the new key.

  • Broken key repair

Broken car keys aren’t uncommon in our line of work, meaning we have plenty of experience in dealing with all the different kinds of ways that you can break a key. We frequently deal with keys that have snapped in the ignition or become jammed, damaged buttons that interfere with efficient use, transponder chips that no longer work, and keys that have simply worn out.

Car key repair for your Honda is often cheaper than purchasing a brand new set. If you have a broken Honda key, speak to Tony’s Locksmith, an approved auto locksmith, to see if we can solve the problem.

  • Keys locked in car

If your key has been locked in the car and you don’t have access to a spare, you’ll need the assistance of a qualified auto locksmith. The first thing to remember is not to panic. Whether you need to be somewhere or a child or pet is locked in the vehicle, it’s essential to take the right steps so we can help you regain access to your car.

By giving Tony’s Locksmith a call, we aim to reach your location in under twenty minutes. We then have all the tools and equipment to gain access to your vehicle without causing any further damage.

  • Additional key programming

If you’ve faced any situations above or just wanted to replace a spare key, it’s always wise to have more than one key to allow access to your vehicle. A second key can prevent almost all of the problems we have mentioned.

Visit our storefront with your original key for quick and easy duplicate key programming. We can cut and program new keys in just a few minutes for most Honda cars. For some models, the vehicle may need to be present; however, we are equipped with all the necessary equipment to provide a second key quickly.

Can you reprogram a Honda car key?

If the battery runs out in your Honda car key or a simple repair is required, the key fob will still work with your vehicle once it has been repaired. It may just need to be quickly reprogrammed. We can complete this task in a couple of seconds with minimal fuss.

Alternatively, if you own an additional used Honda key that was programmed to a different vehicle, it cannot be programmed to your current car. Although it may seem cheaper to pick up a second key or use one for a car you don’t own, the security system will not allow the key to be programmed for more than one vehicle.

To combat this, Tony’s Locksmith has access to a range of blank Honda keys for all vehicle models. We can also order additional keys for a particular vehicle we don’t currently have in stock, ensuring you always receive an affordable price for your new car key.

How much does Honda key programming cost

How to get a new key

It is always recommended that you have more than one car key in emergencies. Whether your key has stopped working or is damaged or lost, having a spare key handy can prevent your day from going on hold.

If you’ve just had your key replaced or only have one Honda key, Tony’s Locksmith can program a second key at an affordable cost. Having a second key also prevents the need to rely on our services, should you encounter the same difficulties again.

Contact Tony’s Locksmith today to get a price quotation or arrange an emergency locksmith visit. Alternatively, you can visit our store and we’ll let you know how much the task at hand will cost you before we get started.
