    Default New master key needed

    'Morning all, hope someone can help/advise.

    Getting to know my recently acquired 6th gen 1.4 civic and have found that I don't have the master key, plus I've only got one ignition key, so if that gets lost or damaged, I'm up the creek without the proverbial paddle!

    Does anyone know if Honda will supply a new master? Once the V5 arrives, ill contact previous owners to see if anyone still has the key, but what are my options currently?

    Default Don't need a master key

    Further to my earlier post, found out Friday, you don't need to have the Honda master key to get a new ignition key cut.
    Just go to Timpson, the shoe repairer!
    Just take one of the keys you already have; in my case, the only one, and they will provide a new chipped blank blade, cut the new key and clone the chip code.
    It works, 45 all in.
    My local honda dealer was less than helpful with dark mutterings of "must have the original red master key", and if all else fails, we'll have to get three new keys, a new immobiliser and a new ECU. That'll be 1300 sir!
    Go to Timpsons!!
