Default programming Honda pilot key fob

I just bought a 2003 honda pilot from a non-honda dealership. Unforunately when I left the dealey they only gave me one key and no key fobs or extra keys. I called them back to get them to locate any other keys or fobs that they have. However, I'm bidding on a key fob on ebay and need to know if someone out there can tell me if I can program it to work with my pilot.

Maybe someone with an 03 model can verify that their key fob has the same FCC ID as the one I am bidding on.

ID numbers on the back of the fob are:

P/N:08E61-S5D-1M0-01
FCC ID:NHVWB1U523
CANADA:3495 104 709A

Thanks

The part number is different on our remotes (both of our remotes have the same part numbers), but the FCC and Canada numbers are the same. If you search for "keyelss entry" via teh search feature you will turn up a lot of threads. If I remember correctly, people have used remotes with different part numbers.

Progamming instructions are here. .

Good luck with the Pilot and welcome to the board!

The u523 number matches my 04... I'm not sure about the 03. FYI, programming instructions in Service Manual.

*** Also, the folks on Ebay say you can program up tp four remotes but the Service Manual says only three can be programmed ***

Maybe this goes without saying, but you do need to make sure you get another main key, the valet key, and two fobs. If they can't "find" them, they need to order replacements and program them for you.

After all, you might be buying one from a crooked Dealer on ebay right now.

Default 05 key for 04 Pilot

Sorry for drifting the thread but I'm curious if the key fob is possibly programmable. Does anyone know? What I am hoping is to get one of the 05 key which is combined with key fob and program it to work with my 04 Pilot so that I can save some pocket space.

Having the integrated key fob would be nice....depending on the price. A design change like that though may things difficult to retrofit, especially if the immobilizer has to change to accomodate the integration, which may mean a change both within the key and at the ignition. Only Honda would / will be able to answer this one.

Given the prices of the current replacement immobilizer key and remote units (as separate pieces), the cost may be a little prohibitive. I would not mind finding out though too!

The separate key fob should be programmable. I don't know about the integrated key+fob.

They should all be programmable or rather, the receiving unit in the car should be programmable in order to recognize the unique signal from each fob and immobilizer.

Looking at step 13 of the instructions: after putting the vehicle in "programming mode", the lock button on each remote must be pressed in order for the vehicle to store the code on each remote.

The question of whether or not an integrated key/fob will work with older Pilots will depend on if the frequencies are the same if the series of codes used for the 03 and 05 overlap.

Let's not lose sight of the original question, will a remote key be programmable to work with a fob/key system. It's already been discussed that a current Accord remote key won't work, so the question still remains, will a future Pilot remote key work. I'd think the receiving units would, given the Accord knowledge, be different enough that it wouldn't work. But it's all just conjecture on my part. I'd guess it's because the immobilizer and remote functionality are combined in the remote key, but separate units on the fob/key combination.

I'll take that as a compliment. I've rarely been accused of being fast at anything.
