Replacement Car Key - 2005 Honda Civic LX
« on: July 12, 2014, 11:44:26 AM »
I lost my set of keys to my 2005 Honda Civic LX. I can get an extra remote no problem, but I'm not sure the cheapest course of action to get a replacement key for the car. I'm pretty sure it has an electronic chip in it. I hate to go to the Honda dealership, because I'm sure it will be super expensive. I'm looking for the cheapest possible replacement for the key. Thanks.

I think you won't be able to get a new key for less than $65 (at some place other than a dealer).  A similar thing happened to us earlier this year.  It stinks.

I'd love to get one for $65! I've called all my local dealers and everyone is charging $125. Any ideas on where to go besides a dealer?

Find out if you need the chip inside the key at all to be able to open and start the car. If not, you can get a dumb key and that will be your incentive to not lose your last smart key. :)

Unfortunately, I do need a key with the chip to start the car. :(
