Honda Cars sold since 1995 are equipped with a factory-fitted immobiliser system linked to a small glass chip embedded in the car key. If your vehicle was manufactured after 1995, it will certainly contain the transponder chip. If the correct chip is present, the immobiliser system will allow the Honda vehicle to start. Without the chip, the engine will be cut off. It is normally impossible to bypass, override or remove a Honda immobiliser and still drive the vehicle.
Honda car keys prior to the year 2000 used security technology known as the “red key system.” These vehicles came with a red master key which can be used to programme new keys.
From 1995 Honda vehicles were fitted with immobiliser systems. Varying in operation, there are four Immobiliser systems:
The valet and master keys are both programmed. This means they have a transponder implanted in their grips providing an identification code once inserted in the ignition. The inimitable code is utilized by the immobiliser system to ascertain whether or not to start the engine.
The master key is sometimes called the original key.
Additionally, the system integrates a learning key (RED key). It has a distinct ID code paired to a specific vehicle’s immobiliser control unit. It enables the immobiliser control unit to be re-programmed. It either adds additional programmed keys and/or delete ID codes of lost keys.
This system gets the transponder ID code directly from the immobiliser receiver. It compares it to a maximum of five codes stored in its memory. If the code is accepted the fuel system is energized and the engine starts; If the exact opposite transpires, the fuel system is not energized and the engine will not start.
These systems employ an amalgamate immobiliser control unit-receiver. It is located around the ignition switch. If a programmed key is inserted in the ignition switch, the immobiliser is energised by an electromagnetic induction. It then transmits its ID code to the control unit-receiver. Once here it is compared against five codes in its memory. If the code is accepted the fuel system is energized and the engine starts; If the exact opposite transpires, the fuel system is not energized and the engine will not start.
Not similar to the other master and valet keys, those used on type 4 immobiliser system have an electronic circuitry. It produces a rolling-type code once the key is inserted into the ignition switch. On LX and EX vehicles, master keys also include a battery-operated remote transmitter which enables the vehicle to be locked or unlocked. Both master and valet keys are sidewinder-type.
Inside Tip: Do NOT attempt to use a red Honda master key to drive the vehicle. This programming key issued on older Honda vehicles is intended to be used for programming only. If you don’t have the master key, AutoKey Squad can programme & supply virtually any new Honda keys even without a master key.
Newer Honda models (manufactured after 2000) work on a key number basis, supplied by the dealers. We obtain the codes from the Dealer and cut & programme your key while you wait, unlike the Dealer that needs to order a new set from the overseas Honda manufacturer plants. Also, if all keys are lost, High street Dealerships can replace your Honda key – but the process will cost around £800 if all the locks are changed. Also, Honda Dealerships usually need to ensure their vehicle is transported to the dealership before supplying a new key. This can incur tow-truck charges if all the keys are lost.
Note: Second hand or recycled chips and keys bought through eBay will NOT start a Honda car. This can only happen if the key has been paired to the car using dealer-standard diagnostic equipment.
