What is a Key Fob?
Before remote keyless entry systems started appearing on automobiles in the early 1980’s, the term”Key Fob” was generally used to describe any small decorative token attached to a keychain. They were used to add some bulk or personality to important possessions and chosen so that you could quickly identify your set of keys from others.
Modern Honda Key Fobs can unlock your doors, open your trunk or tailgate, sound a panic alarm, and even remotely start your Honda. For many Honda vehicles with push-button start, they are also required to be inside the vehicle before the car will start. As you can imagine, with all this technology and functionality, Honda Key Fobs, are no longer inexpensive”decorative tokens”.
