| | 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!!
