Replace Your Honda Key

Your key fob can control many more functions than it could in the old days, and it’s a lot more secure, too. Cars are much harder to steal or break into than they used to be. However, this means that replacement keys are harder to obtain than before. Modern car keys are more complicated than ever – gone are the days of simply walking down to your local hardware store and having a blank key cut. Is the key for your Honda missing or broken? The Parts Department here at Honda East Cincinnati can help. Even today, we can make the process of obtaining a replacement key simple and fast!

How much does a Honda replacement key cost?

There may come a time when you need to replace your Honda key fob or battery. The average price for parts and programming for a key fob is $149.00 to $459.00 plus tax. Prices will vary on the type of key fob (and key) that your Honda requires.

Can I get my key cut at a hardware store or drug store?

Unfortunately, no. While getting new car keys was a simple process in the old days, that’s no longer the case. Car keys are far more complex than before to facilitate options like keyless access and to prevent theft. Your keyfob does indeed contain an actual metal key, but that key is precision laser-cut to make your car – and your belongings inside – more secure than before. As a result, the key-cutting machines in your local home improvement store lack the sophistication to cut replacement keys. This is a good thing from a security and safety standpoint, but it can be frustrating if you don’t know where to go for a new key.

Where do I go for my Honda replacement key?

Simply take the short drive to our Honda East dealership on 529 Ohio Pike. Once you arrive at the dealership, head to the Parts Department to pick up your replacement key or battery. The specialist will program the replacement key to your vehicle. The process should only take 15 minutes.

Can I use a key I purchased online?

Sometimes you see ads online for aftermarket keys that may be less expensive than a factory original key. We can attempt to code these keys for you, but we cannot guarantee it will work for your Honda. Regardless of the success of the coding, we must charge you for the service anyway. If it was our money, we’d consider it to be too much of a gamble. You are better off buying a factory original Honda key and knowing that it’s guaranteed to work in your vehicle.

What if I don’t have an original key to copy?

Every new Honda vehicle includes two keys. If you purchased your Honda used, you may have only received one key, and if you lose that key, you won’t have any keys left to make a duplicate of. Don’t fret – unlike the old days, our key cutting machines do not require an original key to follow. Every Honda has a unique key code tied to its Vehicle Identification Number (VIN). With your VIN, and verification of ownership, such as a copy of your vehicle registration, our parts department will have no trouble at all making you a new key.
