Replacement Key Immobilizer Programming

OK, I just spent the better part of 2 hours wading through threads regarding this with no actual answer.

Does anyone have the instructions on how to program a new key with the immobilizer chip? I picked up a key on Ebay, now I need to program it, and I need to know how. I can't find actual instructions anywhere on how to do it myself. I refuse to believe the dealer HAS to do this, every other car I've ever owned has had some kind of actual instructions where I could program it myself.

If anyone has these, and could post them for me as well as future reference, that'd be great.

You cant program it yourself, you have to pay someone to program it for you, someone from the dealer or some other place if someone has an idea where.

You don't *have to* go to a dealer. There are 2 ways to get a transponder key to work on a Honda. You can program the immobilizer to accept the new key OR you can clone the new key to the same code as an existing key. But you MUST at the very least have a handheld immobilizer key programmer. That means a well equipped locksmith will be able to cut and program a key OR a dealer. You can't do it yourself unless you're willing to buy a handheld key programmer such as an Ilco handheld computer. You don't want to clone a key if a key is lost or stolen because the lost key can be used to start the car in the future. You want to use the handheld computer to delete the lost key and add the new key transponder code.

This is what you need to add a key to a Honda immobilizer.

A straight answer - perfect. Thank you. This should be one for the archives, the search brought up very ambigous answers to this.

Re: Replacement Key Immobilizer Programming

i'm updating this with latest info for dummies like me who spent HOURs researching this.
Getting a new transponder key is a beotch! Well used to be
I got a blank off of ebay $7, cause I read a forum where a "Guy" (actual name) charge him $30 bucks to have it "cloned" I mistakenly thought I could get the same deal. I called and a femal voice answered (wife) and quoted me $65, they have a special $75 for a cloned key. but wait a minute "you mean $10 for the key blank"...she said yes, BS! Anyway I bought a key programmer off of ebay for $62 and can read/program the keys now.
I went to have my key cut but some places (hardware store) will not cut if they hear transponder key. I tried WalMart and guess what? they got a new high tech key maker that cuts and clones transponder keys between 30-50? bucks, my ebay key was a little too thick to fit so they couldn't cut it but I had it done else where. If I knew about WalMart I could have saved some cash.
I couldn't find a reasonably price pgm-fi program with immobilizer access for my 2001 civic to do the real updating of transponder keys so I cloned it. newer models use a different thing.
so far the cheapest key cloning is at walmart, call them before you go to make sure they have the new key cutting machine and are able to do your year make model. hail walmart, hail chi... wait USA USA USA!!!
go see your local guy and give him/her a job if you can afford it.
Happy trails, Deano
