Since you only have the valet key, you are going to have a hard time convincing the anti theft system you are not trying to steal the car, without a fob that the security system recognizes ,the only way will be with the use of a scanner at the dealership. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, please don't shoot the messenger.For now open the hood and locate the siren and cut the wires cleanly leaving enough room for splicing later, then TOW the vehicle to Honda.
