Question about 1999 Honda Accord

1 Answer

Can I replace the ignition switch and lock cylinder assembly myself? Would I need to have the new one programmed?

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?

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.

SOURCE: Dealer cut a new key for Pilot but it won't work

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.

How do you change a key switch in a 2001 chevy impala, the factory keys wont turn in the switch


If your key is worn try getting a new one cut.
The ignition lock cylinder and keys do not contain any coded electronic components. The lock cylinder housing contains the coded electronic components. Changing an ignition lock cylinder or replacing a key is a purely mechanical process which does not affect the vehicle theft deterrent system. To replace an existing key, simply cut a new key to match the existing one. If no keys are available, the lock cylinder must be changed. To change the lock cylinder, simply replace the existing lock cylinder with one of the same type.
If you are unable to operate the ignition cylinder with a new key then you will probably need to replace the cylinder and switch.Replacement of the switch involves reprogramming
The system may be programmed with or without a scan tool.
There is a way to get the cylinder out without replacing the switch but this procedure should be performed by a qualified GM technician as it involves removal of the switch and some precise drilling.

Car was stolen ignition was ripped out of 2002 grandam, now car won't start with ignition and security light keeps flashing


groan.....gunna need a bit more info. but i'll try. What portion of the ignition was ripped out? The tumbler + switch? If so, you might need to get the car's system resent to recognize that it has a new ignition put in. Sime vehicles have a theft prevention system in place to prevent the vehicle from running if its been hot wired. Your best bet would be to replace the damaged ignition components (You did not mention if you did or not). If it still doesn't work after you have replced all of the ignition components. You can try to reset the vehicle (doesn't work on all) disconnect negative battery terminal and go back into vehicle and press down the brake pedal for about 30 seconds then reconnect battery and try it....good luck, hope this helps

THE REMOTE DOOR LOCK ON A 2000 BUICK CENTURY HAS QUITE WORKING. THE FOBS ARE GOOD BUT WON'T OPEN ANYTHING.


The transmitter may have lost programming,
In the event that a transmitter is lost, program the old and the new transmitters into the memory of the remote control door lock receiver. Up to 4 transmitters may be programmed.

IMPORTANT:

  • Once entering this procedure, programming the first transmitter erases all previous transmitters. You must program all transmitters.
  • Program one vehicle at a time. One transmitter could be programmed into other vehicles that are also on program mode in close proximity.
  1. Sit in the driver's seat.
  2. Remove the ignition key from the ignition lock cylinder.
  3. Close all vehicle doors.
  4. Press and hold unlock on the door lock switch.
  5. While holding the door lock switch in the unlock position, insert and remove the ignition key twice. Do not rotate the ignition lock cylinder.
  6. Insert the ignition key a third time leaving the key in the ignition lock cylinder. The ignition must remain in the LOCK position for the rest of the procedure.
  7. Release the door lock switch. You will hear three chimes. This chime feedback indicates that transmitter programming is active.
  8. Press and hold the lock and unlock buttons at the same time on the keyless entry transmitter for 12 seconds . You will hear two chimes. This chime feedback indicates that the transmitter has been programmed successfully.
  9. Repeat step 8 for the rest of the transmitters (for a total of 4 transmitters).
  10. Exit this procedure by removing the ignition key from the ignition lock cylinder.
