depending on the dealership, $60-80 for a master key (damn computer chips), $30-40 for remote.

60-80 for a key what the ****. I have had them copy them and half the time they don't even work. I really am not sure what they charged. Is it diff for the 6th or 7th gens than the 5th cause I don't think I payed anywhere near $60 but I may have. I know it didn't work except to unlock the doors and I think I would have been a little more pissed if it was that much. I got a local shop to copy mine and it works great. I just use it for a spare.

6th gen keys have a computer chip in them, and need to be programmed with the code to work... part of the immobilizer system. i don't believe they had that in the 96 accords. you can have a local shop make a copy of a 6th gen key, but it will only work in the doors and trunk. without the correct code sent from the computer chip, car won't start.

In the 6th generations, there is a chip inside the key that the car must recognize to start. The 88 cent Wal-Mart key won't work.

As for the remote, what remote are you talking about? Are you looking for a replacement key fob for your remote entry? If so, I believe that ebay would be the way to go...

yea i actually made 2 keys at a hardware store, opened passenger door fine, opened the trunk fine, opened my door fine, tried to start the car.... haha, didn't happen.

i noticed remotes one bay sell for less than $10, that's prolly where i'll order one from and just get a key cut at the dealer for a rediculous price. thanks everyone.

Depending on how many Honda dealers you have within reasonable driving distance, it might not hurt to call several to get their replacement key prices.

As for the remote entry fob, here are the reprogramming directions (if you do pick up one off of ebay):

thanks for the directions, i already found them thru google yesterday, thanks anyway. Click the image to open in full size.

can't wait to get the freakin car on the road already!! not registerd yet, nor insu... but when i get it on the road im goin straight to the dealer... the front tires have some thread, the back ones are bald.. he probably swapped the back ones to the front as the front is more important, gonna tell them to put new tires on the rear, rediculous.... can i get him to get me a key as well (first time buying from a dealer)? i mean the car didn't have a gas cap, some of interior lights didn't work, didn't provide me w/ radio code, only gave me 1 key, with a remote (w/ dead battery). so far i've spent around $40 on all these extras...

If you've already purchased the car, I doubt that he's going to give you new (or newer) tires, that was something to bring up before signing on the dotted line.

As for the other items:
Gas cap: ~ $6 at the dealer
Interior lights: a fuse? ($2 or $3 for a box at any auto store)
Radio code: free, but you have to have the serial number from the back of it
Battery for remote: $4 or $5

Default Re: how much do keys cost? (mood513doom)

If I remember right (I've asked about it, but haven't done it), they charge so much labor to find the correct chip setting and to make the key, but after the first key the cost is only for the blank (no more labor). Thus one key might be $15 or $20, the second would be $3 or so more.

What I'm saying is that if you're getting one key made, check on getting a second or a third made at the same time.

Take your VIN number and your title to your local Honda dealer and have a key cut.

+1 Do not cut a copied key from your 'worn out' key. It is best to get a fresh key made from the VIN #. After 18 years, my Accord's key was no longer working. I went to the dealership and cut a fresh key and it works beautifully. Its best to get a fresh key, rather than make a copy of the worn down key.

Hondas may be different, but I had a Chevy Lumina with the chip in the key and a local locksmith said he could replace the key for about ten bucks. I had a spare key done at a local GM dealership earlier for about $35... oh well

Default Re: how much do keys cost?

Lost my only key for Accord '01 last week. Checked out dealers but they were asking for $60 cutting the key and $65 for programming it but I had to bring the car in, which meant getting it towed for additional expense. Some were asking even more. Did a local search for locksmiths, found dozens but when I checked BBB ratings, many had an "F" for quoting one price and asking another. Ended up going with americanbestlocksmith.com who did it for $185 all inclusive. The guy was very nice, gave me a spare extra which can only open the doors but $185 is damn costly.....what the heck.

He took a while to program it though as his computer was causing some issues. Anyways, have a new key now....let me run to the local dealer to get a copy....lets see how much they charge for just copying. Not sure they'll even copy with my non-Honda programmed key.

You can purchase a key on ebay and have it cut and programmed at the dealership. I think most lock places (eg. walmart) should be able to cut it for you. Programming is the tough part, where a dealership should help. Just cutting it, will allow it to open your doors, but if you try to start it, it will trigger the anti-theft system, so do not try to start the car with a non-programmed key.

Did the 6th gens have the e-brake pedal code to override the system? Can't remember but I know the newer ones had an override using the e-brake to enter a code so that you could start the car and get to the dealer to have the program done....I know my Pilot has this.
