Hi all. New member. I have a 2006 civic. I left lights on for 2 hrs that gave me a flat battery. That dead it wouldn’t unlock with key button. We tried bump starting and then a lady pulled up with jump leads... yes you know where this is going.. friend had the key in the ignition when jump leads was applied.. main and spare key don’t work. All locks work and ignition. But the flashing key is on stopining it from starting. Spent £75 on program keys that I have been told are fine and stored. He also tried to plug in and diagnose but car was not sending anything back.

Honda want £2300 for new cluster and immobiliser. Read everything I can about this with no joy. Any help will be very grateful

Where did you get the £75 program key from, because at that price it wasnt Honda. From the back threads I read here its only honda that can reprogram the key to the immobilizer successfully, but it shouldn't cost you £2300 to do that.

Mum's car had same prob. Battery died. Charged it and refitted. Keys weren't in ignition though when refitted battery and never tried jump starting.

Went to start and immobiliser flashing. Had to get towed to honda who reprogrammed it. Think it was about £100.

Only seems to affect early models and pathetic honda flaw.

Called few locksmiths who wouldn't touch it and called aa who couldn't do anything so had no choice but to go to honda

Been told the keys are ok and are working. Everyone seems to think it’s the immobiliser. Is there a way around it?

Wont a unofficial honda HDS do the keys, im sure I seen that option in my unit when I had my honda.


Any error codes?.


I'm guessing that all your getting is the flashing key icon when trying to start the car but the same keys are locking and unlocking the doors?
