Don't know if this is the correct forum to post this but mods please feel free to move it neccessary
I bought (Honda dealer 150 miles from where i live) my 06 plate 1.8 Sport at the end of May and when i collected it, just as i was driving away i realised that i had only been given 1 Key. I asked for the other key, was told that it had been mislaid and that a new key would be ordered and would be sent to me.
The programming would be organised locally (FOC of course) so i wasn't concerned (annoyed but not concerned). After 3 phone calls the duplicate key arrived so i arranged with my local dealer to have the key programmed.
Turned up, couldn't be done, possible fault with the laptop thingy they use. Have to come back after machine sent to Honda for Recalibrating.
Got phone call, machine back, pop up , key still can't be programmed, apparently on the laptop, engine management is accessible with the new key but not the immobiliser.
The dealer now thinks the immobiliser unit in my car may be faulty, got to go back this week and leave it for the day, but i am confused. Obviously the existing key works ok, so why should a new one not ?
My other concern is that the Technician (mechanic) said that they had to work out where the immobiliser unit was as they had never "done that on a Civic before"
So does anyone please know where it is so i can point them in the right direction
I thought i'd left all this behind when i sold the Audi
