My new NO REMOTE button small key
Honda have just released a very small lightweight key which although it has no remote buttons on it can open, start and lock the car with all alarms enabled.
The previous non-remote key could not be used with 2008MY cars as it could not disable or enable the alarm. To set the alarm so that the lights flash I just turn the key backwards and then forwards in the drivers door. The remote key can still unlock it OK. Likewise after setting the alarm and double locking using the remote key the little key when inserted in the door can unlock the car and be used to drive it. No alarms will sound.
You can see how much smaller it is from these photos. My wife who does not often drive the car wanted a small lightweight key to keep in her purse so she could always get into the car when I was not around. As she already had a big remote key for her own car this new key is ideal.
