Red Key messed up my car! HELP!!!

Hi lude owners, this is my first post here. hope you can help me out.

So basically, this is what happen. I bought my lude with just grey key and a red learning one. I lost my ignition key and tried to use the red one to start it and I realize that if I use the red key it'll **ck your immobilizer and ECU. so I called honda stealership and ask for reprogramming my Immobilizer since I have a red key and a new bought blank t5 key from eBay. They told me they gonna replace the immobilizer unit and it will cost 500+ and I dont have enough money for the new one. so I did some research and found out this alternative way that I can bypass the immobilizer and buy an obd1 ECU to replace the Obd2 stock. I haven't done this issue before because this is my first car. any suggestions on how the procedures and things needed or any cheap alternative ways would be a big help! HELP ME OUT GUYS I DON'T WANNA GO TO STEALERSHIP. I dont care about the immobilizers no more.

Re: Red Key messed up my car! HELP!!!

the person i bought it from said i just need to take the key to a honda dealer to get it programmed. i would take my title, drivers license and key to the dealer and see if they could program the chip.

after you get it programmed, the key wont turn the car on right away. just turn it from 0 to 2 and back 6 times then it should start.

im not really sure how the chip works, hope they don't need the old key to pull the code from.
