Replacing smart key?

Hello all,

Forgive me if this is a dumb question but is there a way to replace the smart key without having to deal with the Honda dealer? I’m not a “car guy” so I don’t know where to go for misc. items like this.

I had a second key made and programmed for me by an independent locksmith. You will have to ask around though. I was able to find the contact info through my local mom and pop hardware store.

Yes, definitely. Even my Honda dealership uses an outside locksmith because their cost is lower. They still use OEM keys, just usually have more buying power versus a dealership. If I recall it was ~$120 for a replacement smart key on my 2018 from the locksmith, but the dealership wanted $126 just for the key itself, then additional to program it.

They had lost one of the original keys prior to me purchasing the car. They have the locksmith come once a week to do any key jobs. I was worried the key wouldn't be OEM, but that's not the case. I'd go with an independent locksmith. You will need your registration and ID for them to be able to prove ownership before they will program the ky.
