Losing your Honda Odyssey key

Honda Key Replacement

Every day people lose their car keys. It’s a pain! Mile High Locksmith knows how annoying this situation is and would like to share some information with you on what you can do if you have lost your Honda Odyssey key, and you don’t have any spare key to make a copy from.

Honda Odyssey replacement key options:

The first question that we want to ask you is, are you are worried that someone will find your lost key and try to steal your car? If the answer is yes, here are your options to keep your Honda Odyssey safe.

First Option- best value:
Your first option is to reprogram a new key. If your Honda Odyssey is in the years 1998, 1999, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, or 2013, you can erase the information of your old key from your car’s immobilizer and reprogram a new key with new codes. With this option, if someone does find your old key and tries to steal your car, he will only be able to unlock the car door but will not be able to start the engine. This option is a standard operation and should not cost any more from creating a normal new key in these years.
Second option:
If your Honda Odyssey is in the years 1995, 1996, or 1997, you can rekey your Honda Odyssey’s doors and ignition. This will be costly and if you choose this option we recommend that you shop around for prices between locksmiths and Honda dealerships.
Third option:
If you are not worried that someone will find your car key and try to steal your car, then we recommend to just make a replacement key to your Honda, which shouldn’t cost too much.
What is the difference between getting my key through a Honda dealership and a locksmith company?
If you lost your only Honda Odyssey key and you don’t have any spare then the cheapest way to get a new Honda Odyssey key depends on what kind of key your Honda Odyssey requires. Some keys will need to be programed to your car. If your Honda Odyssey key needs to be programmed then the cheapest way to get a new key is by using a locksmith company. The locksmith will be able to come to your car’s location which will save you the towing expenses. If your Honda Odyssey key does not need to be programmed then we recommend that you call both a dealer and a locksmith company and shop around for prices.

I have a broken Honda Odyssey car key. How do I repair it?
Honda Odyssey models from the years 2002 and under have just a regular key-blade. This means that if the two pieces of your broken key are still in good shape even when the key is broken in half, it is still possible to read the key’s cut and make you a new one at a low cost. A professional locksmith will be able to do it for you.
If your Honda Odyssey model is a 2003 or higher, it means that your car locks require a high security key and to read the cuts from the broken key will be almost impossible. You will need to ask the locksmith to make you a new key either by code or VIN number.

Mile High Locksmith is a local company in Colorado. If you happen to be in a different state then a good website to search for a mobile locksmith company is the Associated Locksmiths of America. All you do is enter your zip code in their website and change the miles box for a higher distance, then click search. You will find car locksmith companies in your area.

Ford F150 key made

Ford key fob

lost my Ford F150 key. What can I do?
Re-keying a Ford F150

What can you do if you lost the only key you had for your Ford F-150? Any Ford F150 keys that are lost can be replaced by making a new key with the car VIN number. All you will need is proof of ownership to show the locksmith before they make the key. Your photo ID and car registration or car title will be good enough proof that you own the vehicle.
Another option you have if you have lost your Ford F150 key is to re-key the doors. To re-key your truck is not the same thing as making a new key. Many people still tend to request a re-key service when they just want a new key made for their car or truck. So, what exactly does it mean to re-key your car or truck? To re-key something means to change your locks so that the old key won’t work at all anymore and you get a different key that will work on your new locks. Re-keying something is a good idea if you lost your key and don’t know who has it. It is also a good idea if you do know who has your old key but you don’t want that person to have access to the locks anymore. You can call the car dealer or a locksmith

Repairing your ignition switch
A re-key service can also help in the case that your Ford F150 ignition won’t turn. Re-keying your car or truck ignition switch can repair the ignition. If your Ford F150 ignition is broken and will not turn and you are thinking about replacing this part then we recommend that you try to re-key it first. In many cases your ignition problem can be a common problem that happens over the years with your specific car. Repairing it will be even better from getting a new part with the same common problem.

My Ford F150 key is broken
A broken key in the ignition is also a very common problem. The first thing we want to tell you is to not try to start the engine with your broken key. Not even when the other part of the key is still inside the ignition. If you have started your truck this way then stops! Starting your ignition with a broken key can cause more damage to the ignition itself and can be more difficult and expensive to repair.

How can I get a broken car key out of the ignition?
We recommend that you call a mobile locksmith service and not to try to start the car with the broken key. We have gotten many calls from customers saying that they have broken their key inside of their ignition but that they have succeeded to start their car anyway. When the broken key is used to start the car it simply pushes the broken piece in deeper until at some point it will stop to work all together.

Cost to repair ignition switch Honda Pilot

Ignition replacement service

All kinds of reasons can cause this to happen. Mile High Locksmith would like to share some information with you and provide you with a few tips of what you can you do if your Honda Pilot key won’t turn the ignition or your door locks.

Worn out key won’t start car
Typically, a worn-out key is the first reason why your key won’t turn. Even if your key still turns the lock on your car door or trunk, your key can still be worn out. This can happen because of the key cut.

Problem with the ignition switch
Over time, many cars will have problems with the ignition. Many times, one of the ignition wafers gets stuck.
Tip: If your key still turns the ignition sometimes and then other times it doesn’t, or sometimes is hard going, then the first thing you should do is stop trying to turn the key. Then you should call a locksmith for repair. It will cost less to fix your ignition when it is just showing signs of problems but you can still turn it, rather than from the point that the ignition won’t turn at all.
Why doesn’t my car key turn the ignition lock?
The best way to fix a car key that won’t turn your ignition lock is by making a new key. Making a key by code or by VIN number is necessary in this situation. To just make a
key copy of your old key will not fix the problem. A locksmith or your car dealer will be able to make you a key by code or a key by VIN number.

If one of the wafers inside your Honda Pilot ignition lock is stuck, then a locksmith should be able to fix the problem by re-keying it.

Where can I get my Honda Pilot ignition lock or key fixed?
Shop for prices with your Honda neighborhood dealership to see if they are a better deal than a locksmith.
Check if you have AAA Auto club.
