I CAN'T FIND THE MASTER KEY CODE, I lost my keys HELP!!

Ok so I own a 1988 Honda Prelude 4ws and I just got back from a trip to California and lost my keys. I've waited long enough and no response. I called the parts guys at the Honda dealer and with the information I gave them they said they could cut me a new key if I had my title and license. Well I brought it up there and they couldn't do it for anything under the year 1992! The guy told me to look for a 4 digit master key code on the driver side door lock cylinder. I took everything apart and couldn't really get the cylinder out because it was crazy looking inside but I managed to get it loose and see 4 numbers stamped in blue on the underside of the actual door handle component itself. They were followed by a dot then one number then a dot and two more numbers. I gave him these 4 numbers and he said ok the keys are cutting now (over the phone). I picked up the keys and these aren't the right ones so I don't know what to do anymore. I'm so frustrated. Has anyone done this before or have any pictures they can share of what number I'm looking for? Any help would be GREATLY appreciated!

I had new keys cut for my 89 using the VIN number a couple years ago. There is a member over on preludepower.com who did this for me. His name is psychoboy. You can try contacting him about making you a key.

Dude this sucks it won't let me message him without posting 10 times, and I have nothing to talk about besides my keys so I don't know what to do! I posted on the board over there maybe someone can get a hold of him for me.

Re: I CAN'T FIND THE MASTER KEY CODE, I lost my keys HELP!!

I went over to the other forum to send a pm for you, but I saw that cudaboy did that for you already. Sorry about that, I forgot about the 10 post requirement. That was implemented to keep people from spamming the forum, but it makes things a little more difficult for new members. Hopefully he'll get back to you with good news.

If all else fails you can always re-key the entire car. It would take some work but it's not that difficult to do if you run out of options. I did that with my driver side door lock cylinder and also the trunk lock cylinder.

Yeah I appreciate that man, I'm trying to avoid the locksmith and their insane prices. If all else fails I'll call them, but it's not like I need my car immediately. Thanks though!

Re: I CAN'T FIND THE MASTER KEY CODE, I lost my keys HELP!!

I never said anything about a locksmith?

Actually, I'm only half kidding with that question. It's not difficult to re-key the
door and trunk lock cylinders. But I have no experience with the ignition cylinder. In theory it should be a matter of changing the tumblers around to fit a key. But even if you took it to a locksmith just for the ignition cylinder, it shouldn't be too bad. I had an ignition cylinder re-keyed for an 85 Chevy pickup once, and they charged me about $75. It came with two sets of keys too. I just had to take the steering column in to them. You could do that with your lude if you have no other options. Then change the door and trunk lock cylinders to match the new keys.

Yeah, too much work man. My lude is one key for everything, master key. So the price for them to come out and make a key at my home with their tools is like $70. That's not bad, but I can still save some cash ��

No such thing as too much work if you want to drive your car. Like I said, I was only recommending that as a last resort. How well do you like your lude???
