Honda Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Welcome to the site.
Are you referring to the immobilizer programming so it will start the car or the keyless entry keypad?
They were correct but it will have to be programmed at the dealership. The immobilizer function can only be programmed by the Honda computer and they must have the password XXXXX only from the Honda network. Its not something that you can program without that tester.
