Getting a spare/second key

I just wondered if anyone has ever had a second key made?

My car only came with one and I'd be keen to have a spare. I've seen the key bodies can be had for about 3 on ebay, but they would require a transponder and cutting, which I guess may be a Honda only job? Or does anyone know of any third parties that can do this?

I remember enquiring about this in the past with Honda and it was almost a couple of hundred pounds to get a spare key made

my 9th gen only came with one key. IIRC dealer wanted 200-ish to get a new blank cut and code it for me.

I bought a genuine honda blank off ebay cheap but found it impossible to get anyone to code / cut it for me (one independent chap quoted but it was MORE than buying a new key incl cutting / coding at the dealer!). ended up returning the blank and got a key cut and coded at aylesbury lock and key centre, cost 99 and they did it whilst i waited, took about 15 mins.

It's not a genuine honda key but it's just as good.

Thanks! That's pretty much what i'm thinking to do. I'll google and call some local companies to see if it is something they can do.

I had my key cut and programmed by a guy in East London for 50. I see that he even lowered his prices now.

I bought a blank off ebay and went to KAP Autolocks who cut and programmed it for me for 50 ages ago (price was business to business discount though)

Just had mine done.

My recent purchase of a Type S GT-T only came with 1 key.

Paid Honda 170 for a second key giving them the registration.

Then paid 31 for them to program it to the car and remove any old keys from the system.

Expensive but at least I have peace of mind that whoever has the key I dont have cant start the car anymore.

Can anyone tell me exactly where the transponder chip is in an original 2006 key? Is it in the actual metal key or in the circuit board/battery pack? Mine didn’t work when I got the car so I ordered a new remote with blank key from eBay. Thought I could just put my key blade on the new remote but everyone says that won’t work. Currently using the valet key. Or is it possible to just order a remote solely for locking/unlocking the doors (and maybe trunk), program it and continue to use the valet key for driving?

In circuit board. Metal key is just a metal key acting as antenna.

Hmm, I hate to burst your bubble, but my friend had the exact same happen when his car key got stolen. Went to BMW had another key made, had his spare key & new key programmed, and they "deleted" the other keys.

Parked the car on a main road and walked up the street, heard his car alarm go off, laughed to himself thinking it wouldn't start, then heard his engine fire up and wheel spin off up the street. I don't think they can "delete" keys without changing the ECU inside the car. The BMW just stopped the key buttons opening the door, but the emergency key at the bottom of the fob opened the door. And then in the key slot it recognised itself and started up. Police happened to be behind the vehicle a couple of days later and the occupants just ramped it up a curb and star burst out of it. The police didn't even realise it was stolen until they ran off.

Well according to the dealer the HDS system deleted the old key. Granted it will work in the door lock and open the car that way but it wont start the car. I had a peugeot once and i had an extra key made for it and they accidentally deleted my original key as it no longer started the car so its likely its ok. I have also seen videos of hondas with keys being added and old keys not able to start the car anymore. Maybe bmw is different.

Also Maybe BMW didnt do the job properly. My Key wasn't stolen. And I bought the car a long way from where I live.
