If you have lost the car key for your Honda, and have found yourself locked out of your vehicle, there are several methods that you can rely upon to replace your key. The method that you do choose will typically depend on how much time you have, and how much you are willing to spend for your replacement. Before you make any decisions on this, it is important to review the conditions of any auto warranties or insurance policies for your Honda. In some cases, key replacement is covered or otherwise included, so you should always check.
If you have a Honda from 1998 or earlier, getting a new key is typically very easy, as these are almost always physical keys, which your local locksmith will be able to cut for you. They can do this from your current, or spare key, and if you have lost your only key, they will have the equipment necessary to cut a new key to fit your lock.
With the newer models of Honda vehicles, you have a few options. The first that many attempt is to go straight to the dealership, which will be the most expensive method available. This can be even more costly if you need to have your vehicle towed to the dealership for this replacement.
Another possible route is to purchase a fresh key off of the internet, and take it to your locksmith to have it cut or programmed for your vehicle. This can save considerable money, but it does present its own difficulties. Many fobs are advertised online as being universal, but the locksmith may find that this is not actually the case, leaving you out the money and in the same situation.
Often the best option is to work with your local locksmith, who will be able to provide fast and professional service to ensure that your replacement key is the proper size and format, and will work with your vehicle.
