Customer Question
I have a...

I have a 1997 honda accord. My key fob will not work. I gained entry using the key but the security system won't let me start the car. Any suggestions and/or where can I get a key fob for that model? Thank you

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the fob's battery?

Yes

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Accord yourself? What have you tried so far?

So far just checked the battery. I did have a mechanic but has moved out of the area.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

No thank you

I just heard from my mechanic. You were right...a $45.00 job. THANK YOU!! Your response was received in less than 10 minutes!!

Linda B.USA

Your answers were clear and the diagrams were perfect. Dealer wanted $87 for an hour of labor and even I did it in 15 minutes.

EdUSA

HONDA PLATINUM was great. I really appreciate his help. I was ready to trade my new Honda until he told me to wait until I got 3,000 miles on it and my gas mileage would get much better.

SummerUSA

I took the Power Steering O-Ring service bulletin linked from JustAnswer to my Acura dealer, and not only did they no-charge the o-ring, they also replaced the power steering pump at no cost.

Gary RStevenson Ranch, CA

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.

Mary C.Freshfield, Liverpool, UK

This expert is wonderful. They truly know what they are talking about, and they actually care about you. They really helped put my nerves at ease. Thank you so much!!!!
