I assume that you have a Sport? The owner's manual warns against dropping the ignition key/remote transmitter. As if never dropping your keys is a possibility. Maybe your transmitter is damaged and sending the wrong signal? Sounds like a dealer visit, but how do you get it there?

use ur spare key! mine came w/ 2 keys try using the other one. If it works, ur key is bad, if it doesn't then it's the car. Try disconnecting the battery (for 10 minutes) to reset the ecu then try it.

Geez, where is my mind today. Very logical suggestion- I forgot I had a spare key because it lives in my wife's purse. That would certainly solve the diagnosis of a possible bad key transmitter.

No start - Immobilizer (bad key)

I went to McDonalds the other day in my 2008 Honda Fit Sport - AT, my Fit was running just fine. Got my food, went back to the car and NO START. Tried everything, being Houston, it was a hot as Hell. Called the dealer (service) and I had my car safe towed for service. Turned out to be a faulty key and my battery was a little low (from trying to start the car). All work & towing was under warranty (no cost )

Thanks - Goodson Honda West Service (Houston).

A spare coded key may not be a bad idea.

I have an 07 fit sport, and I'm currently sitting at a gas station at one thirty in the morning because my immobilizer decided to kick in. It has been doing this occasionally, though more and more frequently. I've never not been able to get it to start, sometimes it just takes half an hour for the key to work and the flashing green key light on the dash to go away.

My question is how do I know it's the key, and not the immobilizer unit? I only have the one key, and I'd hate to spend all the money on an overpriced key just to find its the immobilizer unit in the steering column at fault.
