basiclly a RED KEY sells most of the civics that have FSH and other stuff, without the red key people think the car hasnt been looked after

The red key is for reprogramming the Immobilizer - IT SHOULD NOT BE USED TO START THE CAR. My Prelude SH (BB6) has an Immobilizer chip, but the Civic (EJ8) does not. I bought my Prelude used and only got black keys. I just went to the stealership (Honda dealer) to get a replacement key. It cost $25 US, and all they needed was my VIN#.
