Customer Question

how do I reset the imobilizer system for a 2004 honda accord coupe
JA: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix with Honda. The Honda Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Tell me a bit more about what's going on so he can help you best.
Customer: the car won't crank. It does not recognize the key.
JA: How many miles are on the car? What size is the engine?
Customer: 180,000. v6
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself?
Customer: yes
JA: Great! What have you tried so far?
Customer: turning the key to lock and then trying to crack.
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Honda Mechanic should know about your Honda?
Customer: no
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Honda Mechanic about your situation and then connect you two.

My name is ***** ***** I would be happy to help. Do you have a new key you are trying to use, or are you using the same key you've always used?

No thanks. Writing will be fine.

Does the engine spin over, but not start up? Or is this a no-crank/no-start?

It spins.

It just started.
