I have a 2012 Honda Accord and all of a sudden the key fob

Customer Question

I have a 2012 Honda Accord and all of a sudden the key fob that I use and the one my wife uses won't work. We can't open the door or trunk and the little red light on the fob lights up when we push it. How can this be resolved? I'm locked out of my car.

The above link does not show step 1 and nothing happens when I click on register the new transmitter.
Expert:  david craig replied 6 days ago.

that is because the first step and the register step are only able to be done with Adealership only HDS diagnostic tool. the 2nd step is all i wanted you to try.

yes

let me try to find another reset.

Expert:  david craig replied 6 days ago.

straight from Honda: Sorry, there are no keyless entry remote self-programming instructions for this vehicle. You must get an Automotive Locksmith to program the remote to your vehicle for you or bring it in to a Honda Dealership.

Thank you anyway.

It turned out to be a dead battery, not the key fob.I'm surprised you didn't mention that as a possibility.
Expert:  david craig replied 5 days ago.

you were locked out of your vehicle, so you wouldnt have been able to get in and open the hood to check the battery voltage. do you not think that I know this. i was trying to get the fobs to work. im surprised you didnt think of that.
