immobilizer issue crank but will not start

Hey guys, i'm new here and just purchase my first 98 Prelude 5th gen. recently. It's been a really car until recently. Here is my problem:

First my ignition lock cylinder got messed so I had to take it out and took it to a locksmith to fix it and he did. After driving it for a couple of week, i decide to use one of my other master to start the car. Now this master is pretty worm. When i put it in the ignition, the car would not crank or start at all. So I decide to use the key (valet key) that had always work perfectly. Now the strange part, this key now does not work either. Too much of a wierd coincidence!!!! So i got another master key to try to start the car. This third key (2nd master key) would crank the engine but the car does not start. I have check the all the relevant fuse under the hood and dash and they seem to be good. Sorry for the long story but feel that need to describe the issue in detail and anyone reading this post can offer some advise. Here is a summary of the issue:

1. Valet key - no crank, - green key light come on and blinks continuesly
2. master key #1 - - no crank, - green key light come and blinks continuesly
3. master key #2 - crank but NO start, green key light DOES NOT come on

I've been a lot of research and readings and can not seem to figure this issue out. Can someone please help me????

Re: immobilizer issue crank but will not start

by valet key, you mean the red one? that is a key that is linked to your ecu that resets it to reprogram which key will disable the immobilizer.

you need to use the red key, which will get the green key light flashing rapidly, then use one of the black keys and turn it from off to run (not start) 6 times back and fourth. that should set the key with the computer and disable the immobilizer. then use the key you just programmed into the computer and see if it will start your car. it should.

if you are still having issues, you can download a manual for your car from here: 5th gen prelude manuals
you can click the download button on the top right corner and download them all as a .zip, or all are viewable online without downloading.
