Is their a chip in the key? I have a 2000 accord coupe. I have an after market key that works fine. I was finally giving the two spares and 1 extra remote. The remote works and the keys turn the ignition, doors, and trunk. When I try to start, it just keeps turning over.

You can take the car and the keys to your local Honda dealer and they can program the chip. I don't know how much it costs.

^this. Cost depends on location. SOme places charge $20, some charge $100 and more.

Just had a new key made for my 2000 accord last week as the old one was so worn out it wouldn't turn the ignition.

Cost me $122. $77 for the key and $45 for the labor to "program" it.

Seems pretty ridiculous.

I know ace hardware can program the key. So honda isn't the only place. I think when I had the a new key made at my honda place it was I think $75 for key and to program it.
