Exclamation i got a HUGE problem

ok so last night i lost my keys. searched everywere and i still cant find them. when i bought my car from a private seller, he only gave me 1 key. when i went to the hardware store go get a spare i didnt know that Honda has to go program it. what the fvck do i do now?
along with my keys was my Viper alarm thing. i dont want people to find it and steal my car.

oh yea, i want people to give me advice on what to do, not people saying "oh that sucks" or give a smart *** answer. if u dont know what i should do, then dont say ****.

I'd call a Honda dealership...I think they can cut keys and program them with the VIN number from your car.

hopefully you have the key code....... pretty much the only way is to have Honda make you another key and flash it with the proper code.... sorry man.

Go to a Honda dealer with your Vin and Proof of ownership of the car.. they can cut you a key from the Vin but they need the car at the dealership to program it.. unless you know someone at the dealership that can hook you up it's gonna cost you about $150 for each key.. I believe the blank is $75 and my dealer charges $75 to program it.. as for the remote for the alarm I can't help you there..sorry about your luck man hope this helps..MAKE SURE YOU HAVE PROOF OF OWNERSHIP such as Title or Memorandum Title (that's what Ohio gives you so you can register the vehicle.) I don't know what they call it in Jersey.

correction.. I don't think they need the car there for the Key to be programmed I may have been confuzing that with the Keyless entry remote

check your glove box, it has a # code in it. the code you need for them to cut your key.

unplug your alarm til you can get it reprogrammed, and lock the car manually. then pull the battery or unplug the ignition coils. otherwise bye bye car.

Safest thing to do is get new keys made but get the ECU flashed to accept a different code. You don't want working keys floating around.
Also take care of the alarm. Can you get that changed for different key fobs?

Since you have the keys, I would go ahead and get another one made when you get the money. I gave my second set of keys to the only woman I could ever trust to keep them somewhere that only she knows about: my mom. Also, my girlfriend has one of my valet keys just in case something happens. It's nearly impossible to lock your keys in our civics, but you never know when you might lose the keys.
