Default Get a spare key made from Wal Mart

just wonder if theres such a thing as a key code on my Civic & car won't start except one made from the dealer. Only have 1 key in very bad shape, I plan to replace it + 1 extra, but I heard $200-$300 to have it done @ dealer is just redicurous.

there's nothing special to your key. if it doesnt work its because it was cut wrong.

year 01-05 are Rw2 or Pgm Tester and PIN Code Require.
as for 06 and up, i dont know, but im positive those
are also dealer restricted keys!

Honda will charge you about 80 bucks for those blanks.

Yeah, Honda and most other places should only charge about $5 for a new key for a 6th gen Civic.

Once I had a problem with a dealer cut key. They cut it using my VIN. It stuck in the ignition (not the doors) and wouldn't come out. Come to find out, sanding the edges should solve that.

Any key cutter could make that mistake.

I've never had problems with any other key they cut for me (I went through a phase of locking my keys in the car...).
