Yes I know that.problem is that its a 05 accord with the .... um its not like a regular key for a house door. its key is on the face of the blank. not the edge. hope i didn't confuse you.
If what you mean is that the key is indented on the top and bottom instead of being "cut" or "reshaped", It doesn't matter, all 7the gen Accords have that style of key, they have the tools to cut it. You can buy the blanks on ebay and have the dealer program them.problem is that its a 05 accord with the .... um its not like a regular key for a house door. its key is on the face of the blank. not the edge. hope i didn't confuse you.
Mine was $12 at the dealership for the cut only.just having the key cut is not too expensive. had my switchblade key cut at the dealer for about $15. the programming is what they charge you at. but luckily i just moved my chip over to the new key enclosure and it works fine.
the reason i want a valet type ke is if i loose my keys i dont want someone to poke the panic button to locate my car then drive off. the lock/unlock feature is nice, but ive lived 52 years without it. i think i can live a bit longer without it. whats the cost of programing the key?
ive also herd on chevys the remote lock/unlock option will disable it self if not used for too long a period of time. are hondas like that too
If he buys a blank valet style (no fob) he can get it cut and programmed to main key specs which would open everything. The factory valet key will work as you described.Take the battery out of the key.
If my memory serves me correctly, the valet key is slightly thicker and won't go int he glove box or the trunk lock cylinder.
true, BUT then the car gets paid off (i assume), get new load (i assume), and insurance goes WAY UP (FACT)! whats mine i want to stay mine. i have $50 delectable on comp, and $100 deductible on collision.this is why I have full coverage insurance. I'm not going to inconvenience myself based solely on the fear of what may or may not happen.
