Tengo Honda Pilot 2007, por error use llave de otrop auto para tratar de abrirla, ahora no puedo abrirla con su llave, solo flashea la luz roja del seguro al insertar la llave pero no abre la puerta. Reconoce el beeper pues enciende dentro del auto pero no abre los seguro y con la llave tampoco, no se siente que enganche nada en la puerta al girar la llave manualmente.

HI,
I am sorry that you have not been helped yet. I just came online and saw your question.
Most likely the immobilizer module has lost programming due to the wrong key being used and will need to be re-programmed. Because you are locked out, it will need to be opened with a jimmy tool and then it can be reprogrammed.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
If I open it with the tool, can I reprogram it by myself? If possible, how can I do it?
Expert:  Eric replied 1 year ago.
HI,
It will likely need to be reprogrammed with a scan tool, but first once the door is open, disconnect the battery for 1 hour, reconnect, insert key into ignition and turn to ACC position for 10 seconds, turn off, then see if the key works.
If it doesnt, it will need to be reprogrammed with a scan tool

I will try that first. I let you know what happen later.

Hi,
Ok, sounds good
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
When I insert the key in the door lock, a red light blink beside the lock of the door, I can turn the key both way but nothing happen.
Expert:  Eric replied 1 year ago.
HI,
That is the immobilizer, which is set due to the wrong key that was used. It no longer recognizes your key.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Is it possible that, after I open the car and disconect the battery for an hour and insert the key moving it to the ACC for ten seconds and back to off, recognize it again?
Expert:  Eric replied 1 year ago.
HI,
Yes, many times this will work. Disconnecting the battery does a hard reset of the control module to erase any fault codes stored when the wrong key was used
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I am in my job now, as soon as I get home, I will try that to see. I will contact you again.

HI,
Ok, sounds good.
