Question about 1999 Honda Accord
I lost the keys to my car and my husband said the lady he bought the car from had the ignition replaced one time before so we can't just have the dealer cut and program new keys. We have no way to get the car to the dealer to have it fixed as its 50 miles away and the cost to have it replaced by the dealer was pretty expensive. Can we order the part and do it ourselves or does the dealer have to program the new assembly too?
Get a locksmith to cut keys to suit the existing lock barrel then program the keys to suit the vehicle
it is a difficult job to replace the switch so get a workshop manual if you want to do it yourself

no its not that most likely its faulty ignition circuit but there is no magic fix you'll need to have it troubleshot get an obdII scan from a local repair shop its a sure shot way to find problem if not and you want to save some money on the tow you can purchase a scanner at your local parts store for about the same price as the tow and scan at shop.

Once the dealer hooks up their computer and activates the ignition you shouldn't need to go back, The code that you were given is usually just a temp code to get you to the dealer.

If the key fits mechanically, and the lock turns, then the key has been cut correctly. However if it just won't start the vehicle, then the transponder chip within the key will need programming. The dealer should have the equipment to do this. Do not accept a key that does not start the car - and certainly don't pay unless it does.
