Icon9 HELP!!!!! LOST MASTER KY TO 5TH GN LUDE SH

I recently lost my main/master key for my prelude. Also, I had no spare key. I called honda and they said for me to tow my car there($65), then they would need to make me a key with a chip in it ($357) and reprogram it to my car ($120) ans thats not including tax. Thats labout $600! Just for one key. Dayem. Anyways i was woundering if there was any other way to get around this? Could I go pull out parts from another same generation prelude type sh and use there parts for my car? I was thinking I find a person thats parting out a prelude(same gen and sh model) that still has there key and wat parts would i need? Is this possiable? Thanks in Advance.

I thought they could chip you a new key using your VIN for ~$20?

That's a load of bologa. I work at a Honda dealer and it shouldn't cost you more than 45 bucks I think. I forgot how much a key cost. All you gotta do is go to a Honda parts and ask for a master key, they'll program it and should take less than 15 mins to program. They'll need your vin id and official proof that the car is yours. All set.

The bike shop I work at calls a locksmith to cut a key for the unit, not sure if the same procedure can be used with cars though.

When you do get a new key, go to wally world and have a copy made for 28$. Good luck.

Re: HELP!!!!! LOST MASTER KY TO 5TH GN LUDE SH

I think they quoted you for an imobilizer unit. If you lose the red key you have to get another unit programmed to your car, then they have to use the unit key to program any other key you want for your car, same thing that kind of happened to me, but the quoted me $550 for key and install. The owner of my car lost the red key, I have an Acura key that starts my lude

Re: HELP!!!!! LOST MASTER KY TO 5TH GN LUDE SH

Bitch please!



Actually, that's about right. Mercedes, BMW, Lexus, woo boy! 800.00 key only. If you broke the plastic parts, you better bring a rape kit. You could just have the immobilizer unit removed. Cost about the same. How do you lose your car key? That's like one of your nutz, you just don't lose it.

You lose the pants/jackets they were in, not the key, LOL

Re: HELP!!!!! LOST MASTER KY TO 5TH GN LUDE SH

Just tap a screwdriver in and cut it off just past the ignition....your new key will be a bit larger, as you will now need a set of vicegrips to turn your "key" but problem solved ;)

Yeah, I had a Civic before I got my Prelude. The flywheel went out on it one day. I took it to a Honda dealer and there mechanic was going to charge me $80 bucks an hour, for 8 hours to tear apart my transmition just to tell me what the problem was. I told there manager that it was 1 of 2 things, the flywheel or cable, and to piss off.

Back on topic, I would try another dealer or a local mechanic shop. They are usually better service and better prices.

Re: HELP!!!!! LOST MASTER KY TO 5TH GN LUDE SH

Go for it! Seems legit, contact the seller first!

Just to be on the safe side, check your boots and shoes that they key didn't fall into them, happened to me once, felt so dumb when I reached for my boot and it fell out LOL

Re: HELP!!!!! LOST MASTER KY TO 5TH GN LUDE SH

Honda made a very limited number of key profiles for a while. try enough honda keys and you'll probably find one that works. My friend locked his in his 4th gen, then our buddy with a 3rd gen accord came up and unlocked the door with his key.
