Customer Question
They lost the key...

They lost the key and then broke the tumbler out with screw driver, how can i start it. 2005 Honda accord 4cyl automatic.

Mechanic's Assistant: Do you have a backup key? Maybe the emergency kind that fits in your wallet?

I said they broke out the tumbler

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

I just want to get it started so i can move it before it is towed and then get new ignition assembly

Hi, my name is ***** ***** will not be able to start it due to the immobilizer that needs to recognize the key. the only thing you can possibly do is to disconnect the transmission range sensor and manually shift the lever on the transmission to neutral so you can push the vehicle

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
